“I feel this class was very helpful for developing my holistic OT knowledge and abilities. Emmy is very good at teaching these techniques. This class was very hands-on and not only did I learn the techniques and practice them in depth, I also got to experience them being done on myself, which really helped me understand and learn. Thank you so much, Emmy! I can’t imagine a better way to learn this information!” Jessica Dehn OTR/L

It is a wonderful combination of getting in touch with your body by relieving tension and stress, plus it is a great activity to share with family, friends, and whomever needs relaxation, stress reduction, building your health (up a notch) and tender loving care. Emmy does a great job of teaching that is easy to understand and follow the information provided. She also demonstrates and coaches in a user friendly manner!” Paulette Vadnais, Health Care Companion
