Health & Wellness
Jackson Hole Wellness Services
Preventing illness is an essential part of your health care, and as a comprehensive
care facility, St. John’s Medical Center is proud to offer a host
of health and wellness services in Teton County. In the last few years,
we have added numerous services to help the people of our community be
well. It’s much easier to prevent health conditions like heart and
lung disease than it is to treat it, and these preventive community programs
give you a chance to live a healthier lifestyle in a safe, fun environment.
Enjoy the natural beauty of Wyoming and give your body some valuable exercise
through the Active Trails Program! Active Trails is managed through a
partnership between St. John's and Grand Teton National Park. This
program encourages community members to visit the national park for hiking,
boating, and other physical activities. Participants are given various
perks to for their commitment to physical fitness. Benefits vary from
year to year, but in the past we have given out free bus transportation,
guided nature walks, and subsidized park passes.
The Healing Touch Program is an alternative therapy focused on the power
of touch. Practitioners use their hands and apply pressure to strategic
points on the body to promote physical and emotional health.
The Wellness Department’s Healing Touch providers offer Healing Touch
sessions to patients free of charge to enhance their experience in the
hospital. Healing Touch works with your body’s natural energy to
promote healing and provide a deep sense of relaxation. Benefits of Healing
Touch include reduced stress, decreased pain, lowered anxiety and depression,
enhanced recovery from surgery, supporting cancer care, and easing acute
and chronic conditions.
The Wellness Department works closely with the St. John’s dietary
department to make healthy changes to the food that we offer to visitors,
patients, and employee. Exciting changes include the introduction of local
produce, local antibiotic-free meats, naturally flavored soda waters,
and new nutritious daily specials.
We also offer
nutrition counselling services, where you can work with a registered dietitian to create a diet specifically
designed to prevent various medical conditions.
