Aspen’s Sky Hotel Seduces Guests With New iHome™ Technology For iPods™, Furry Handcuffs, In-Room Oxygen, Ménage A Trois™ Wines And More

New funky services and amenities for guests looking for more than your standard hotel stay

Aspen, CO (PRWEB) January 11, 2006

The Sky Hotel, Aspen’s chic slope side boutique hotel, a Kimpton Hotel property, today announced it would be adding the latest frills and essentials to its current hosts of in-room honor bar amenities.

Starting December 2005, each guest room in the 90-room ultra-hip boutique hotel will offer the new iHome™ (iH5) system technology to accompany its current complementary in-room technologies. The iHome (iH5) is an alarm clock system with an iPod™ docking station technology that "docks"(charges and plays music) off of an iPod (gen 3, gen 4, iPod mini™, iPod photo™ or other mp3 and audio devices with a patch cord). Guests can use it as a standard clock radio, or set it to fall sleep or wake up to their favorite iPod tunes. The system is "Made for iPod" and certified by Apple™.

Additionally, The Sky Hotel has partnered with Oxia™, the creator of the world’s smallest, lightest and most fashionable portable oxygen dispenser. Given Aspen’s altitude of 7,930 feet, the oxygen offers a plethora of health benefits and a quick and natural pick-me-up, perfect for those active and energy deprived guests. The sterilized dispensers can be rented for $14.95 per day or purchased to take on the slopes or on the town for $59.95.

Furthermore, The Sky Hotel can tickle more than their guest’s fancies with new furry handcuffs as part of the current host of in-room amenities. Guests can enjoy this new item along with the Kama Sutra Weekender Kit offered with the “Tease Me Please Me Romance Package” or as a special essential to be purchased through the hotel’s front desk.

"By offering the opportunity to make a guests travel experience more personalized through in-room amenities, we can ultimately design the perfect vacation for our clientele,” said John Carter director of sales and marketing for The Sky Hotel. “From the town’s activities (skiing, snowboarding, hiking or biking) to seductive honor bar essentials, a guest’s vacation or business trip becomes less formatted and much more of a unique and fun experience.”

In addition to the latest in-room amenities, The Sky Hotel offers a fully stocked honor bar including all of Aspen’s necessities. Hand warmers and feet warmers for those long days on the slopes as well as hangover pills and loads of water and energy drinks for those long nights at the 39 Degrees Lounge. Most recently, the hotel added California Folie a Deux 'Menage a Trois'™ white and red table wines delicately mixed with three blends of various grapes.

Like most hotels, The Sky Hotel offers in-room movies, video games and cordless phones, but in addition to its current technologies, The Sky Hotel began to offer an iPod music station in all of its suites in 2004. The iPods are pre-loaded with "hiptronica" music that is pre-selected and played throughout the hotel and lounge. Next to the iPod music station, guests will find an assortment of selected CDs that are "loaded" on the iPod station. If a guest enjoys the songs, they have the opportunity to purchase the CD by charging it to the room (similar to a minibar purchase). If a guest does not want to listen to the pre-selected music on the in-room iPods, the iHome system will dock their pre-loaded iPod or mP3 player.

For more information on the new in-room amenities or to book a room, contact the Sky Hotel: 970-925-6760 or toll-free 1-800-882-2582.

The Sky Hotel and 39 Degrees opened in June 2002. Its engaging mix of whimsical and luxurious design elements, coupled with friendly and professional service, has made it a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.

What Science Says About the Healing Power of Laughter -- and How The Sedona Method Provides a Shortcut to Those Benefits

What Science Says About the Healing Power of Laughter -- and How The Sedona Method Provides a Shortcut to Those Benefits

Laughter is really some of the best medicine, according to a range of scientific research. Here are the essentials, and how The Sedona Method -- led by Hale Dwoskin, one of the featured teachersn the mega-blockbuster book and film, The Secet -- can help provide a shortcut to these very same benefits.

Sedona, AZ (PRWEB) April 14, 2008

There is an easy, fun and free way to help improve health and well-being, according to Hale Dwoskin, one of the featured self-growth teachers in the mega-blockbuster book and film The Secret, and the CEO of Sedona Training Associates. And that way is laughing.

Laughing does not just feel good, it prompts real, positive changes in the body. Laughing stretches muscles, raises the pulse and blood pressure slightly, and causes the breathing rate to go up (which helps oxygen to reach the body's tissues).

"The reason that laughter is so healing is it is one of nature's natural relief valves. It's one of the natural ways that we release or let go," says Hale.

In fact, some experts have even compared the benefits of laughing to those of exercise!

One study by researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore found that laughing impacts how well the blood vessels are able to expand (the better they expand, the lower the chances of heart attack and stroke). After volunteers watched a funny movie, blood flow significantly increased (by 22 percent) in 19 of the 20 volunteers.

The benefits were so significant that the researchers said laughing improved volunteers' blood flow the equivalent of what would be seen after a 15- or 30-minute workout!

There are other ways laughter helps the body, too.

According to a study presented at the American Heart Association's 73rd Scientific Session in New Orleans, people with heart disease were 40 percent less likely to laugh in a variety of situations compared to people without heart disease.

Laughter also prompts the body to release the feel-good chemicals known as endorphins. Endorphins are the body's natural painkillers, and they also contribute to a sense of well-being. It is thought that endorphins are responsible for the positive feelings people get after exercising (a "runner's high") and orgasm -- and they may actually counteract the negative effects of stress.

A good laugh also increases the body's level of human growth hormone, which may help to slow the aging process.

For anyone who needs a laugh right now to improve well-being, here's a joke:

A couple had been married for 25 years and was celebrating the husband's 60th birthday. During the party, a fairy appeared and said that because they had been such a loving couple all those years, she would give them one wish each.

The wife said, "We've been so poor all these years, and I've never gotten to see the world. I wish we could travel all over the world." The fairy waved her wand and POOF! -- she had the tickets in her hand.

Next, it was the husband's turn. He paused for a moment, and then said, "Well, I'd like to be married to a woman 30 years younger than me."

The fairy waved her wand and POOF! He was 90.

Interestingly, laughter is so powerful that just thinking about it can increase the body's levels of endorphins and human growth hormone. According to research by Lee S. Berk of Loma Linda University in a paper presented at an American Physiological Society session at Experimental Biology 2006, beta-endorphins were 27 percent higher -- and human growth hormone 87 percent higher -- among people who were expecting to watch a funny movie.

Ideally, everyone should laugh -- often. Yet, experts estimate that while children laugh up to 100 times a day, adults laugh just five or six times a day if they're lucky.

So while it is highly recommended that people add more laughter to their life, obviously they can't realistically go around laughing ALL the time.

But people CAN get the benefits of doing so as often as they like.

"Genuine laughter produces the same effects as using The Sedona Method," Dwoskin says. "You find that you breath more deeply, your body relaxes, your circulation gets better and your attitude, point of view, state of mind and feeling states all improve dramatically."

The good thing about The Sedona Method is that, unlike with laughter, people can use it anywhere, anytime, and get instantaneous relief. They can also use The Method during times they don't feel like laughing, because it works regardless of whether people are smiling or crying.

Right now everyone can get the free Insiders Guide to The Sedona Method email course sampler (http://www. sedona. com/power-of-laughter. aspx) by inputting just their name and email in the sidebar on the right of the article at http://www. sedona. com/power-of-laughter. aspx (http://www. sedona. com/power-of-laughter. aspx).

Sedona Training Associates is an organization that teaches courses based on the emotional releasing techniques originated by Hale Dwoskin's mentor, Lester Levenson.
