 Candace Barber - Birth Doula

 "I loved your workshop, Nicholas! I have used the techniques taught by you with every client and have had fantastic results! Everything from decreased anxiety, turning a posterior baby, to pain relief, and starting a labor that had stalled out. Awesome!!! The birth partners were so excited to learn the points too. It really made them feel like a vital component of the birth "team" by being able to provide the comfort and encouragement needed to have a completely natural birthing experience. I'm SO happy to have gained this knowledge to share with my clients!"


 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!"
