The Gift of Hope
Meet Eve. She was diagnosed with a presumed in utero stroke at birth. Her doctors could not agree on a continued course of treatment and felt that she would need to wear a brace indefinitely and receive injections to loosen her muscles — but her parents decided to seek out a different approach.
“Prior to coming to TB12, Eve could not raise her ankle upwards, her right calf and thigh were very stiff as well as her right arm,” Eve’s mother Shannon says. “Through pliability work, Eve’s Body Coaches have helped to break up the stiffness in her deep tissue and signal to her brain that her muscles have relaxed.”
“It is no easy task to work on a 3-year-old,” Eve’s mother explains. “But I can honestly say the first time we came to TB12 was the first time we left an appointment and felt excited.”
“Eve has made immeasurable improvements since coming to TB12. That may sound extreme but it is true. Not just in her physical condition — which includes increased mobility and pliability, but also in her confidence.”
“We’re so thankful that they had the foresight to open the TB12 Center. It takes courage to stand up and introduce a new method of care. You invite criticism and endless questions. But with that comes the beauty of hope — and hope is an amazing gift.”
