Testimonials from Previous Students
“The overview at the beginning was extremely helpful; the “language” use around holistic modalities as well as the categories that are considered part of those approaches – some I had not considered before. The list of resources was very helpful – allows the exploring to continue in the different areas that I’m most interested in. The research resources are also important – we need to educate and equip ourselves to educate our coworkers, business partners, and patients – that research can provide some substantial evidence that can help persuade those to at least consider these other modalities, or at the very least respect that approach. I still work in an area where, ironically, we have a pretty active and visible “holistic” clinical group within my company, but my particular department has a history of shying away from that.”

“I thought that Emmy was very knowledgeable and I would like to know more about energy healing. I enjoyed learning about meditation and Herb Benson’s protocol on relaxation response. I would like to get certified in holistic methods and become a private OT therapy contractor. Thanks to Emmy for being the leader in talking about Holistic OT as being a specialty for our profession.”

“I enjoyed the way you put this information into the framework of OT, I use many of these practices personally, but have not considered really using them with my clients because I put OT techniques in too square of a box I guess! Great presentation, keeping putting this information out there!”
