Back Pain

I have been seeing Paul Olko since March of 1992, and have seen him about 30 times during that period. Using Chinese herbs, Paul has treated me successfully for lower back pain, asthma, and bronchitis.

All of my treatments from Paul have been wonderful, but perhaps the most dramatic example of his effectiveness as an herbologist can be found in my recent experience with bronchitis. I suffered severe congestion of the lungs over a month-long period, during which time I was unable to connect with Paul due to travel and my tight schedule. I often found myself coughing so hard that I vomited. From standard medical doctors during that time I was given 2 courses of antibiotics and a course of steroids, all to no avail. I finally was able to have a visit with Paul, and within four days of taking his herbal remedies, my lungs were completely clear.

It is without hesitation and with the utmost enthusiasm that I recommend that Paul be fully certified as a Chinese herbalist.



I came to Paul a little over a year ago with a lot of complaints—fatigue, depression, decreased libido, back pain and irregular periods. After listening to my symptoms and examining me, he recommended some herbal preparations and instructions for me to follow. Paul also gave me the most incredible full body massage, which helped to relax my knotted muscles and my mind. I followed up with Paul for several months so that he could monitor my progress with the herb formulas and keep my body tension-free through massage so that I could exercise without pain. It was AMAZING! After only four months, I had more energy, almost no PMS, a more regular monthly cycle and no back pain.

Only eight weeks ago I consulted Paul on the subject of infertility because my husband and I were having no success conceiving after TRYING for a year. I had been on a formula for this for a few months, but still something was missing. After some wonderful advice from Paul about relaxing and letting God take control my husband and I were blessed. We are expecting our second child in June 1992.

For any woman who may read this and need some encouragement about using Paul’s methods of treatment for the whole person, whether it be for infertility, PMS, or the common cold, please take the time and really listen to him, because I feel that through him, God is speaking to you.



I began seeing Paul Olko a few months ago for what was becoming a chronic lower back condition, tendonitis in one elbow and a general weakened state. I found his diagnostic and treatment procedures refreshingly thorough, covering all aspects of being . . . emotional and spiritual as well as physical . . . rather than simply dealing with symptoms presented. The results have been delightfully swift in some areas and steady, but deep, in the more persistent, long-term conditions.

His knowledge of procedures and treatment regimens is extensive, but even more gratifying is his deep respect for the practice and philosophy of Chinese Herbal Medicine, for the herbs themselves and for his clients. He trusts his medicine and he trusts our ability to take part in our own healing process. He honors each client for what they are at any given moment and is never judgmental or harsh. Quite the contrary . . . he is perceptive, compassionate and patient and gently weaves each session around the client’s situation at the time.

In addition, he has a complete pharmacy, an herb shop (with things that can’t be found elsewhere in the area) and a small bookstore with titles covering everything from Chinese Philosophy and Healing to Nutrition to Healing the Child Within.

I am grateful for the opportunity to be working with him to restore and maintain my health and well-being and for this opportunity to recommend him to your Board.



In 1998, I consulted Paul Olko for several months regarding a spinal problem. For some years, I had experienced chronic difficulty with lower back pain; this accelerated when new stress created a slipped disc.

Over a period of a year, I saw Paul, approximately forty times to be treated for this condition. Initial visits were scheduled twice a week, and the frequency of needed appointments gradually decreased.

I appreciated Paul Olko’s thorough, balanced, and effective approach to the health condition about which I consulted him.



We want to thank you for thinking of us, for your generosity and your kindness.

Words cannot express my appreciation to you for the amazing body work/treatment I received from you. Also, the book on Chinese medicine and children’s health is very illuminating and empowering.

Thank you.
