A short introduction of Dr. Olpin by Heather McKenzie at a recent speaking engagement in northern Utah.
I know what I do works.
My goal is to give you tools that you can use every day to reduce and minimize the effects of your stress.
I’m committed to helping you heal.
Because people are different, what works for one may not always work for another, but we use enough powerful tools that at least a few and usually several will work to help you effectively turn off stress and feel a lot better.
And the more you use the tools, on a daily basis, the more calm, peaceful, and relaxed you will feel every day.
