    Service business vs. Product what are the challenges?

    December 3, 2015
    In the next few months I’m going to be talking a little bit more on what it takes to create a successful business in addition to my normal tips and insights….Let me know what you think in the comment section! I think owning a service business comes with its own set of challenges.  Our revenues are dictated by time and people instead of units and products.  For us who charge by the hour, because we can’t add more hours to the day, this means we can only grow by adding staff and increasing the number of people serviced. This comes with its own set of challenges, every time you add additional staff, your overhead increases.  You will then need additional space, supplies and increased personnel costs.  This compared to a product driven model, where if the demand increases you just increase production.  The cost of that increase in production can be factored into the price of the product.   The other difference between a service business and a product driven model, is relationships.  A service business is built on the direct interactions it has with its customers.  Those relationships can make or break the business.  Word of mouth and referrals are the main drivers in sustaining a repeat clientele.  With out that referral stream the cost to constantly generate new clientele would absorb any profits gained. With a product based business; exposure, presentation, need and functionality are the main drivers of sales.  With a product the customer sees it, wants it and buys it.  The guy in the back that is putting it together doesn’t matter.  With a service it is all about the guy in the back!   So the way you create a successful service business is focus on your relationships!  This starts from the first point of contact.  This can be the person on the other side of the phone when they call or how you interact with a potential new client when you meet them in the grocery store.  Professionalism and compassion must be conveyed at all times.  The customer experience is key!  If they are led through the entire process with a white glove and a soft shoulder you will have them for life.  So what do I mean by a soft shoulder?  Humans like to feel wanted and listened to. Make the customer feel like they are the only person in the world and do this with genuine intentions.  If you follow these rules you will be amazed at the results.  Your concern and quality service will differentiate you from the rest of the crowd.

    Thanksgiving Thought…

    November 27, 2015
    I woke up this morning with an immense sense of gratitude. So many people are constantly asking, why don’t I have this, or why don’t I have that? Filling with anger or depression. I believe we have a tendency to not see what really amazing lives we truly posses. Things sometimes might get rough, but we should remember the fact that we have a roof over our head, food on the table and people around that love us. That our future and present are completely determined by our own actions and passion. That the person that is most commonly standing in our way is our self. I have had the privilege to work with thousands of people over my life. Each one of them trusting me to help them with some sort of problem. What these people didn’t know, is that they all helped me as well. Whether it was their smile, a nugget of information, or just showing me sometimes by example what not to do! Every single person I have touched has touched me back, for that I’m thankful. Because without them I would not be the person I am today. Without my friends and my family who have supported me through all the highs and lows, I would not be the person I am today. So today I thank all of you in my life for blessing me with your kindness, your trust and your love. Happy Thanksgiving   Holden  

    Carpal Tunnel has nothing to do with your hands!

    November 17, 2015
    As humans we like to see pain as something local. Some times this is true, if you cut your arm and it hurts, that’s where the pain is coming from.  But when we feel a pain in our wrists and hands that is a burning or an ache, automatically think there is something wrong with our wrists or hands.  We go to the doctor or someone who specializes in hands.  There options will be to prescribe treatments for just that area.  They will inject the area, splint it, give you exercises to strengthen or even operate on the wrist and hand.  Rarely looking past that specific area. So what if I told you the pain you were having has nothing to do with your wrists and hands but is merely a symptom of a different problem somewhere else on your body?  Would you think I’m crazy?  That wouldn’t be the first time someone told me that!  But this time I am actually right and me being right will help save you from months of pain and sometimes invasive treatments. The majority of Carpal Tunnel pain comes from the neck and shoulder.  When the shoulder is overly rotated forward or back usually due to the pectoral muscle (chest) being over developed compared to the back.  All the tendons and nerves can get compressed shortening the entire chain down to the wrist.  This can cause pain or numbness radiating all the way into the fingers.  Spinal compression in the C6-C7 area of the neck can also occur from this same scenario.  Burning pain down the entire arm can then result. So how do you treat this?  At MetaTouch our therapists release the muscles up the entire chain fixing the route of the problem.  This aligns the neck and shoulder back into place taking the pressure off the hand and wrist. To help this problem on your own you will need to release the Pectoral muscle yourself.  This can be done with the use of a tennis or soft ball.  Go against the wall, press the ball against your chest and the wall and roll it between the shoulder and the midline of your chest.  Find hot spots and sit on them with the ball till they release.  This won’t fix the problem but will take some of the pressure off the shoulder resulting in less pressure in the wrist. At MetaTouch we see the body as a whole instead of a bunch of individual parts.  By treating the body as a whole we are able to create lasting beneficial change to the body. Author, Holden Zalma, founder of MetaTouch has 21 years of experience treating the body and has developed methodologies to help find the root of pain and help eradicate it from the body. All his therapists are trained in this methodology. If you would like more information or to book an appointment please visit us at:

    5 Ways to Be Successful in Your Life and Be Happy!

    August 14, 2015
    Everyone is jockeying to be more successful, make more money, be more relevant and find where they fit in this world. But no matter how much we make excuses for our current condition; the economy, our parents or even bad luck, the reality is that the main factor that hold most of us from reaching our full potential is staring at us in the mirror! Here are 5 tips to help breakdown some of those roadblocks and achieve all that you want and desire in your life. 1.  Move your thinking from the darkness to the light and see how bright it can get.  As humans we have a tendency to fall into negative thinking or let the “I can’t” mentality slip into our daily lives. A metaphor for this is that we have a dark cloud hovering over us; we can see the light right in front of us but no matter which way we move the cloud stays fixed overhead. The reality is that we have the power to move away from the cloud and leave it in the dust! By staying in the positive and focusing on our future potential we can achieve almost anything! Energy begets energy. I’ve found when I am in a negative mood or state that is all I attract. Change that energy and poof! Positive healthy things start crossing my path. You try! 2.  98% of your fears will never come true, so cross the street already!  We all do this. An opportunity comes about and we automatically start doing our risk analysis. Going over everything that could go wrong and focusing on the worse case scenario. Think about it this way, across the street is an ice cream truck offering the most amazing ice-cream sandwiches you have ever had. Instead of just crossing the street, your mind and risk analysis kicks in. “I could get hit by a car crossing the street!” “I might break my ankle stepping off the curb!” I might have to stand in a line to get my ice-cream?” “If I eat the ice cream I’ll get fat.” “What if the person selling the ice cream is mean?” “What if the ice cream is spoiled and I get Salmonella and die?” So you have just taken a simple positive experience and made it into one that is rote with danger. Remember 98% of your fears will never come true, but if you let yourself be ruled by fear you will never accomplish anything or progress because it’s too dangerous. So the moral of the story is go across the street and get that ice cream sandwich and while you are there bring me one too! 3.  The best way to fail is never to try, the best was to succeed is fail every once in a while I was speaking with my son the other day and we were talking about trying new things and taking risks. He has amazing talents and succeeds at almost anything he

    Massage Can Help in Muscle Recovery

    August 6, 2015
    In a study published in the US national library of health: ( , Massage was shown to improve muscular strength and proprioception in the gastrocnemius ( calf muscle) when performed after vigorous exercise. It was found to reduce EIMD or Exercise-induced muscle damage. The study showed that massage can help speed the recovery from muscle damage caused by vigorous exercise. Why does this happen? Massage helps breakup adhesive tissue, reduce inflammation, stimulate circulation and aid in tissue healing and regeneration. So what does this mean in English? If you work out hard and become sore or are in pain, massage by a trained professional can help you recover faster, grow your muscles faster, increase flexibility and decrease pain all at the same time.

    What a Pregnancy Massage Really Can Do

    June 5, 2014
    Pregnancy massage, more than just a time to relax. When you hear the word Pregnancy massage, what comes to mind? A spa, pretty candles, sweet smelling oils and relaxation? Well you wouldn’t be wrong, but what most people don’t understand is that in addition to the relaxation benefits of a massage there are huge therapeutic elements that most clients and therapists fail to realize. Pregnancy massage and Acupuncture can assist women through the entire pregnancy process: -Getting pregnant: Stimulating specific points throughout the body and breaking up adhesions that can impede the conception process can help increase the chances of getting pregnant. -Pregnancy: During pregnancy the body goes through hundreds of changes. Some can cause new aches and pains that your doctor has very few solutions for. This is where MetaTouch therapeutic treatments can help. Our treatments can help alleviate carpal tunnel symptoms, swollen feet, back and neck pain, morning sickness, sciatica headaches and much more with out any danger to the unborn baby. At our office, we also have a specialized table that you can lie face down all the way through your pregnancy. -Delivery: Most of us run our lives by the clock and calender. Unfortunately most babies have their own schedule that do not match with ours! By using specific points and techniques we can help move up the baby’s timetable and help induce labor when the due date has already passed. There are also techniques to safely help turn the baby in utero when they are sitting in the wrong position for delivery. -Post Delivery: Now your baby is here, your body has been through the ringer and sleep has become a luxury that you only can dream about. Again MetaTouch can help. During your pregnancy your body is flooded with a hormone called relaxin. This hormone helps prepare your body to stretch and grow to handle the baby coming. After the delivery for a short while, relaxin is still present in the body. This makes it easier for your therapist to re-align your body so that when it returns back to its normal state, everything is where its supposed to be. The other benefit of getting a massage after your baby comes, is to take a nap in peace! You worked hard now it’s time to reward yourself.

    5 Things to Combat Workplace Stress

    January 29, 2014
    I think every generation looks back at the one in front of them and says,” They don’t work half as hard we did!” Well, I think regardless of what generation you come from; it’s hard to deny that todays work environment has hit a new high when it comes to stress. When 12-14 hour days are commonplace, most of which is spent sitting in front of a computer or at endless meetings. This can play havoc on the body. Add poor or no nutrition, limited exercise and you have a recipe for disaster. The human body was not built to sit in one place for long periods of time. We were hunters and gatherers who were supposed to be running through the fields. Now we are chained to a desk. So what do we do? I’m not suggesting you go off the grid and live on a commune picking nuts and berries, but here are a few things that can be done to make life a little easier and your work environment a healthier happier place. Too much of our day is scattered with things coming at us from every angle. List out 3-5 attainable goals that you can accomplish today. This will not only give you a positive boost because you accomplished a goal but will also help keep you on track and prevent the feeling of being overwhelmed. We tend to think of eating as something that is involuntary. Unfortunately this thought process gets most people into trouble. Two scenarios usually happen; 1st you are working long hours, don’t eat all day and then have one big meal at the end of the day. This scenario will end with you exhausted, foggy, more susceptible to getting sick and make you fat! When you don’t eat consistently your metabolism slows down to a crawl, causing everything you eat to turn into fat. Your body goes into storage mode because it never knows when you are going to feed it again. 2nd You are a grazer, munching on sweets and carbs all day then having 1- 2 giant meals. This scenario usually ends up with you taking in way more calories than you need. Because most of the food consists of sweets or carbs, the typical feeling will be a quick jolt of energy then a crash. Your meals will also be unhealthy along with portions that are far too large. Solution: Pick a day like Sunday and cook 3-4 meals that you like in quantity and then freeze them. Make sure each meal consists of a protein (chicken, steak, fish, tofu or beans) a complex carb (vegetables) and a straight carb (rice, quinoa) Make sure the first two ingredients are the majority and the straight carbs are the smallest portion. I recommend that when you think portion size, think, no more than your fist, this should be your reference for the quantity of each component. Now here is the hard part…I need you to eat 5 times a day!
