A hug is duct tape for the soul.

Tallahassee Memorial Hospital Brain Injury Support Group
An auto accident in 1989 left me with a traumatic brain injury. As a result, I developed neurological, orthopedic, respiratory, dental and psychiatric symptoms. The pain that resulted from this accident was undiagnosed and untreated.
After numerous attempts seeking traditional treatments for pain, I spent two weeks at the Upledger Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens, FL undergoing cranial sacral therapy. Those sessions saved my life. My pain went from 200% to 50% at Upledger – which made it possible for me to attend to my injuries (broken bones, spinal cord injury, TBI).
There is a growing body of scientific evidence that indicates touch therapy is an effective treatment for traumatic brain injury as well as other physiological and psychiatric conditions.

With that in mind I invited practitioners from A Touch of Healing Massage Therapy Clinic to present at The Big Bend Brain Injury Support Group. The practitioners provided instruction and techniques for massage, relaxation and stress reduction. The group received both didactic and “hands on” instruction. The greatest outcome of this meeting was that we were able to treat one another.
