Today we’d like to introduce you to Jimmy Bluff. Below you’ll find edited excerpts of our interview with Jimmy.
Can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
My mother growing up had severe scoliosis; I got tired of seeing her in pain. I moved to Utah from Honesdale, Pennsylvania when I graduated in 2000. Studied general’s en route to Physical Therapy, but chose to take a year in between my 2nd and 3rd year to attend a trade school for massage therapy and the Healing Arts. I met some interesting people that became known to me as Healers and others who studied to be Shamans and that changed everything.. after going back to the U of U, which had the best PT program in the country it turned out the anatomy manuals were the same, and the labs. But the busy work was tenfold, at the time I was working for a large fitness organization 24-Hour Fitness in Salt Lake City where I discovered I had sales talent, and quickly climbed the ladder into management.
Side note – I grew up doing hard labor in Northeast Pennsylvania heat and humidity doing Asphalt Work with my father’s company Bluff Blacktop, that gave me a work ethic like no other sun up to sundown during summer breaks – so making so much money in the fitness industry I basically dropped out of college to pursue my dreams of running and owning a fitness center, became general manager before I could legally drink…to my dismay a few years later I realized corporate America sucked and dividing the amount of hours by the result of my paycheck I laughed… started a private training center with a friend where I put in 80 hour weeks training clients one on one 5 am to 9 pm sometimes 7 days a week and began doing bodywork.
Discovering more and more from clients and local doctors, then social media around the world confirmed every day through comments and emails to my videos that I had talents they’d not experienced, between that and the spiritual journey I was taking I turned my focus from bodybuilding to my healing bodywork, began working with many uniquely talented individuals, turned my 6’4 270 lb. frame instead into more of a healing instrument or tool, trying to get to the point where I could do things in an hour that others more or less said was impossible. Lol and I can..After working with enough bodybuilders and athletes I got to the point where I could work with my fingertips pulling facial tissue apart 12 hours a day with my eyes closed..And I’ve been progressing my techniques every day. As what many of my associates call me a “healer” the fun part is I don’t view myself as the one doing the work. I’m just the in between. The light worker…the work is done through me..That’s where it gets very intense and interesting. Feeling energy transfer you so powerful Goosebumps run through you like electricity. And 20 years of pain is removed an hour later..That is the beauty..I never considered myself a “massage therapist”.But striving to reach where energetically and physically I can heal clients pain extremely fast and efficient is what motivates me and brings me a lot of joy..There’s nothing more enjoyable them a client walking in and hugging you because she can take her morning walk again..
Has it been a smooth road?
Ohhh mann…. my struggles made me STRONG. Best friend’s .multiple friends and bad business decisions with friends without my own attorney either time left me with nothing twice.Lol. I’ve literally lost everything twice due to trust. I worked for people that didn’t care about people, I’ve worked for idiots. Every one of them pushed me to get myself to a better place and force me out of my comfort zone, EVERY situation taught me something I didn’t care to experience again. I’ve learned a ton and so thankful for everything I’ve experienced. Nearly self-employed 10 years now
What are your plans for the future?
I’ve been working with a new NBA client who just signed with a team so it should be an exciting winter, and with the amount of emails I receive weekly ill begin teaching and holding motivational seminars for professionals this next year within the USA and possibly a few other countries that have shown interest.
Let’s dig a little deeper into your story. What was the hardest time you’ve had?
The hardest time in my life was my opening my 2nd business (with a friend ).I was lied to about our business agreement, I had no legal counsel to confirm what I was signing and lost Everything I built, 15k/month career, house, choppers, Everything… which nearly caused me a nervous breakdown, a night in the psyche ward and a 6 month cycle of antidepressants, which made everything ten times worse had a choice to make looking across the breakfast table at my nephews one morning..it was die at that point or Live IT and DIE TRYING until I conquered the World and shared my “gifts” 6 years later dr’s, professionals, athletes, and clients know my name in a dozen countries, pro athletes fly me around the World and fly in now to see me for healing. It’s beautiful.
Do you ever just stop and think WOW – I’ve made it?
I was sitting in bumper to bumper traffic last year in my Mercedes convertible thinking about who I could possible idolize or who I could look up to for motivation… as the song “Living On A Prayer” came on the radio I burst into Tears and stuck my fist high in the air pointing at my Angels…I caught a glimpse of myself looking down at me… it was me, it was finally ME I WANTED TO BE, I wanted to be BETTER version of me, I wanted to find My Highest Self, and be No One else…I finally realized how proud of myself I was even though I’m very hard on myself typically….I climbed from the depths of hell, with my Own blistered fingertips and Labor from the unconditional love of Healing others and conquered the world and CREATED MY DREAMS FROM NOTHING..In 5 years from it almost taking me
