Jeanne Russell

Business Owner, Reiki Master, Teacher, Retreat Leader, and Coach

How long have you been doing what you do, how did you become a world renowned retreat leader and what prompted you to open a wellness healing center in Hawaii?

To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story”, that brought me to where I am today – coaching & mentoring people like you on exactly what to do to receive the healing and transformational energies of Kauai, Hawaii and develop their own profitable AND FUN retreat. 

That defining moment in my life happened in 2006. 

One night while doing Reiki (Energy Healing) on my husband, David, who had severe nerve injury on all four of his extremities, I had a transformational experience. While my husband was face down on a massage table in our basement, I was doing hands on healing energetic work on him. My heart was open and I very much wanted to help him feel better. Suddenly, I felt the presence of dolphins in the room surrounding us. They were at the windows and the glass door peering in and filling the room with love and light.  I was immediately filled with so much love that tears started to flow down my cheeks as I continued running the energy on my husband. This continued for the length of the session. Afterwards, David jumped up from the table and exclaimed, “What did you do?” I explained, “I don’t know but the dolphins showed up!” Consequently,  he explained that he felt completely better and he had no pain anywhere on his body. 

From that moment forward, When every I did a healing session the dolphins would show up and assist me. On September 9, 2009 (09/09/09), I opened a healing center on Kauai Hawaii called Dolphin Touch Wellness Center devoted to the Energy and Vibration of the Dolphins. I work with clients in the ocean, on the Mermaid Massage Table (a water massage table, the only one on Kauai)  one-on-one or  hosting powerful and playful group healing retreats on Kauai, Hawaii. And now I am helping other healers come and experience the magic of Kauai and set up their own healing retreats. 

Since opening the center, I’ve worked with hundreds private clients, spoken in front of countless groups, lived my dream of hosting my own retreats, have my own healing center and share this powerful playful healing vibration from the dolphins to the public.

….and I have created “Build a FUN Business, BOOST Your Income & Create EPIC Retreats Your Clients Will LOVE!”, a series of 12 important inner and outer spiritual business building steps every healer, coach, consultant, sole practitioner or alternative lifestyle specialist needs to apply to get out of their own way, and create a life they love.

Testimonials from my Retreat Attendees:

Jeanne was easy to communicate with from the start, and very accommodating. During my stay I ran into a small issue of my own doing, but Jeanne was very responsive and helpful.…Gregor W.

Jeanne was great; very accommodating and informative! …Lynette A.

I had a great time on Kauai. Jeanne’s place was perfect to explore the island. There are a couple of great restaurants around in walking distance, the river really close and even if you don’t have a car – the bus is cheap and gets you to the North Shore…Laura R.

Spent 11 days and loved returning to the room because it feels like a home away from home. Jeanne was a great host as well!

I had a wonderful stay with Jeanne. She is a really lovely person and was incredibly helpful in all aspects of my trip. And even when there were a few glitches she was  very accommodating and helpful in organizing changes and sorting everything out. I had a really wonderful treatment with her and some other great treatments at Dolphin Touch as well as going on some absolutely stunning hikes with Larry at Secret Kauai. Thank you so much to you both for being lovely and understanding…Katherine S.

The magic is with Jeanne and all the people that surround her and the Dolphin Energetic Center. Jeanne was incredibly accommodating while I was staying with her. I did a treatment with her, she made me breakfast one morning, and she had fantastic recommendations on what to do while I was in Kauai. All of that made my trip fantastic. If you’re an energetically mindful person and want to be around likeminded people this is your spot….Steve S.

I felt very welcomed by Jeanne and her associates. The accommodations were comfortable, clean, and spacious…Francine S.

My two weeks with Jeanne at “A Little Piece of Heaven” was just amazing. The room was perfect-very clean and exceeded my expectations. The staff at the Dolphin Touch are very nice and hospitable–during the time I had two massages, acupuncture, Bio Mat, and an outing with Jeanne. Kauai, the staff, and Jeanne made this a very spiritual event for me. I highly recommend visiting the Dolphin Touch and staying at “A Little Piece of Heaven”…Craig N.
