Testimonials from Previous Students
“I really enjoyed taking this course, Meditation for Health Care Professionals, and found it directly applicable to my personal and professional life. I believe all people could benefit from taking this course and furthering their awareness of their own emotional tendencies and how to quickly embrace these tendencies in order to move forward in a loving light. Patients in all settings would benefit from having a practitioner who has an awareness of meditation, to either plant the seed for the patient to look into this more independently, or practice in the clinical settling. Thank you, Emmy!” Emily Thurner, OTR/L
“You presented in a clear, concise manner, and tied the info into functional use as an OT nicely. Your voice was so soothing! This was an excellent class! Thank you.”
“I am happy to let you know that I have been meditating on a regular for the last month and loving it. I have really been able to alleviate my stress. Thank you, Emmy!”
“I am an OTR/L in a mental health school based setting. I work with a variety of students who have emotional struggles, aggressive behaviors, and abusive pasts. I have already tried incorporating some of these strategies into my 1:1 sessions to promote stress management and also to be used as a positive coping strategy. Some techniques used so far include some progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, and deep breathing meditations using a Hoberman sphere as a visual guide and a stuffed animal positioned on the student’s tummy as a tactile guide. So far my older students (7-8 yrs) have really been enjoying it, and I am still learning how to best modify the exercises for my younger kiddos (4-6 yrs). Thank you so much for this information. I truly love putting new interventions into practice!” Kelly Maher, MS, OTR/L
