Jon Mason has worked for over 20 years as a low-force chiropractor, but now frames the work he does with clients as part of a “coaching relationship”. And one of the interesting things about Jon is that he’s acutely aware of the link between thought-patterns and health.

As Jon talks about the challenges he has had in opening his own practice, he notes there was no Facebook, Twitter or Internet. At that time, there was only word of mouth and the Yellow Pages as a way of advertising.
Jon also gained exposure for his business by performing talks, hosting alternative groups and doing demonstrations.
He says what set him apart from other chiropractors and osteopaths is that he took care of the patient entirely, and didn’t just focus on the body.
Jon says the connection he makes with his clients is all the difference and that he sees this new level of confidence in them after they work together.
Jon tells a story of how life altering his coaching can be and how it saved a relationship between a dad and his son. He has also worked with people to address addiction issues, and he has been able to help free them from these addictions or make strong progress towards recovery.
He shares that the work he does benefits him tremendously, and he gets something as well from every person that he works with.
“Once people get to know what you do they’re like wildfire, they pass it on, friend tells friend tells friends and that was the network which established my work.”
“I could see their emotions, their thinking, the way they were holding themselves were as important as pain or symptoms they had; that was the differentiating thing people came (to me) for.”
“The confidence creates the change; we don’t really understand why people change with this type of coaching, but it works.”
“That really surprises me because I have no idea how the addiction happened. I don’t work on the addiction; I just work on getting them to understand how thinking works.”
