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 Health 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
easier and less expensive to prevent health conditions than to treat them
- these preventive community programs give you a chance to live a healthier
lifestyle as you journey toward optimal health.
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 employees. 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 counseling services, where you can work with a registered dietitian to create a diet specifically
designed to prevent various medical conditions.
The Healing Touch Program is used as a complement to standard medical care
in hospitals throughout the world. It works with the body’s natural
energy to promote healing. Providers use their hands above or on the body,
to clear, energize and balance the human and environmental energy fields.
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’s Healing Touch providers are specially selected
clinical staff who have completed the minimum 18-hour Healing Touch Level
I certification. Providers offer Healing Touch sessions to patients free
of charge to enhance their experience in the hospital.
Speakers on nutrition and diabetes prevention
Through their Lunchtime Learning and Words on Wellness programs, the Wellness
Department periodically hosts speakers for the community on wellness topics.
Past topics have included nutrition, diabetes and chronic disease prevention.
Affordable Care Act navigation
ACA navigation assists individuals in understanding their health insurance
options on the Individual Wyoming marketplace and is provided by certified
