The updated massage films and the outstanding visual aids demonstrating trigger point releases were a great addition to our original training. The quality of these recordings provide the benefit of authentic demonstration. 

Mary Reid, OTR

This is a realistic approach to massage for NICU patients well worth the training and application. 

Carol Turnage Spruill, RN

I love this training and will continue to recertify as it is so helpful and beneficial to my practice in the NICU.

Colleen Shine, OT

Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Been a nurse for 27 years and this was the best conference I’ve ever attended.

Wendy Bissonnette, RN

This certification course was amazing! I felt the labs were very good for practice. I also liked how there was opportunity during lunch to have conversations with therapists from other hospitals and talk about practices and improvements. There was time for questions which I loved.

Bridget Johnson, OT

It was a pleasure; so well done. I feel that it is a lot of info for a two day: this is info I’ll need to review, process and practice. Thank you for everything!

Arlene Verno, PT

It’s crazy how I’ve taken a variety of courses and conferences trying to gain this knowledge that you put together in one place!! You are the most amazing entrepreneur and you really are going to change the world of NICUs! I believe in you!!

Jennifer Peat, PT

Absolutely amazing course! Loved Kara Ann’s teaching style and passion to inspire change in our units. Thank you for your passion!

Lois Holsinger, OT

A great hands-on approach with excellent ways/ideas to implement into practice. Intentional caregiving brings the focus back to the baby, as a baby, and is a wake-up call that is much needed. Left me wanting/excited to continue to learn.

Christie Welliver, OT

This was the best and most applicable continuing education course I have taken!

MariAlice Cunningham, PT

Amazing learning experience! Kara Ann is a delight and provides a wealth of useful information that will make a huge positive impact to my emerging NICU practice skills and help to develop my NICU program @ my hospital. I wish I had her daily mentoring!

Stephanie Jones, OT

You are awesome. We need you every month!

Mary Sue King, PT

This course contains SO MUCH MORE valuable info than just massage, so I think the title should be changed to reflect that. I think that a few more of RNs might have attended if they knew that this course was so packed with amazing info on whole-baby care in the NICU!

Chloe Schilhab, PT

This is one of the best NICU courses I’ve been to! There were so many things I can start practicing and begin using when I get home; as well as ideas to start changing the culture in the NICU over time.

Sarah Beaudreau, OT

Kara, you are awesome. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, passion, and clinical wisdom. You are an inspiration- please keep teaching!

Sheri Ricciardi, OT

This course provided foundational information! As a fairly new NICU SLP, I feel more confident in handling and positioning infants. Thank you, Kara Ann!

Jackie Contreras, SLP

Excellent information and presented in a way that was very interesting, engaging, and easy to understand.

Betsy Johnson, OT

Excellent training experience: Presenters were so positive and it was evident that they have a contagious passion for giving the best care to our littlest humans. I feel empowered to better care for my patients and their families.

Thank you! So world/mind changing. I feel I can offer so much fun to parents and their babies WAY before feeding now.

Elle Soto, SLP

Practical, family focused (baby and family) treatment intervention. I wish I would have taken this course when I first started in the NICU. Excited to take the knowledge/learning back to the hospital.

Shannan Murphy-Barlow, OT

Excellent course…so much information and so applicable…can’t wait to go back and practice…hard to know where to begin.

Kim Lindsey, PT

This whole course and experience was so awesome and wonderful that I have no words! I am beyond excited to get back to my unit and get started!

Chelsey Reiter, OT

Thank you so much, so helpful as a therapist in the NICU. Would have liked more however my brain was fatigued. I wish all NICU caregivers had the basic education that was provided. Need to sell to NANN for their developmental specialist designation.

Brenda Lala Black, OT

Excellent course that was so much more than I expected!

Kathryn Thurston, SLP
