It was October of 2014. I was pursuing my Ph.D. at that time, and it was all going good until the day I had a home accident that ended up in a concussion. After the accident, I experienced severe headaches, light sensitivity and very low tolerance to intellectual activity. It was challenging considering that I was 6 months away from finishing my degree. I thought I could manage, until two months after my accident I had a ski crash that severely aggravated my concussion symptoms. My tolerance to noise, light and any activity that demanded quick reactions just plummeted. I stopped driving and exercising, and my brain did not tolerate any activity that demanded movement, including reading and writing! My brain was slow and I had to take time off from university.
This is when Theresa came across my path; she was giving the BIT treatment to my son who suffered from ADHD. She told me that BIT was recommended also for concussion trauma, and I immediately said yes, let’s do it! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew I needed urgent help. Traditional medicine, physical therapy, speech therapy, and acupuncture had contributed to heal. However, I had not appreciated a big difference while being treated by these professionals. Being helped by Theresa changed the slow evolution of my concussion injury. I can’t really explain what she does or how she does it. I know she talks to your body and connects to your soul. She feels for you and releases the tension in the areas that create bottle necks for the right flow of energy. While I can’t explain what she does, I know by my own experience that IT WORKS. After starting the treatment, I immediately began to feel less stressed. My headaches became less frequent (consider that I would go to bed and wake up with a headache) after a couple of sessions. The most encouraging advancement was when she focused on my eyes, which decreased my light sensitivity and facilitated that I would tolerate the computer brightness again. After that achievement I was able to finally go back to school.
These all felt like big milestones; recovering your basic skills is frustrating, but Theresa made it smoother. Her consideration, empathy and dedication make my treatment with Theresa a wonderful experience. She goes beyond any experienced professional; today I can say Theresa has become a good friend. I have nothing else than words of gratitude and appreciation for her. I recently graduated with my doctorate at CU, and believe it or not, my dissertation was chosen as a finalist for the Best Dissertation Award by the entrepreneurship division of the Academy of Management. If you are experiencing challenges related to any type of brain activity, seeing Theresa is a no brainer!
