Cathy Morton – CPM in Oklahoma
“This was the most effective workshop! I walked away with the ability to immediately apply what I learned due to the great hands-on time. A day well spent!

Jennifer Hirsch (CNM)
“I just used your Acupressure point on a client of mine who had nausea and it worked immediately!!!”

Kym Benner (Birth Doula and Childbirth Educator with 20+ years experience)
“Nick Olow’s Acupressure Workshop is awesome, informative and very useful! If you haven’t taken his Acupressure workshop or have been thinking about it….do it!”

Diana Kay, CCE,CD/PCD (DONA)
“Taking Nick Olow’s Acupressure Workshop Class has been an incredible adjunct in my Doula Practice in assisting my client’s with labor support! The Acupressure points are easy to learn and would highly recommend taking Nick Olow’s Acupressure Workshop!”

Prudence Leith (Birth Doula)
“Hi Nick I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful workshop. I attended a birth yesterday and got to put those skills to use. Mom was having an intense labor (very fast and severe back pain) and it was determined that the baby was OP. I shared your notes with the midwife and she gave me the ok to do some Acupressure on my client. The midwife and nurse also joined in and did some pressure points on the hand and foot for pain management, which was pretty awesome. My client said it all seemed to help and within an hour the baby turned! It was great! Thank you Nick!”

Krisha Crosley (DONA Trained Birth Doula in Fort Worth, TX)
“Hi Nick, I wanted to share a success story with you. I meet a potential client for a Doula interview. She mentioned her lower back was bothering her and she was in her 8th month. I went home and videotaped myself massaging the meridian you taught us in class for lower back pain, using my son as the demo. After talking her through the video, next thing she hired me as her Doula! I took what you said to heart as demonstrating the techniques to potential clients in order to get the job. So true! I landed my last 2 interviews because of that comment and my application. Thank you so much!”
