In October 2016 while on a surfing holiday overseas, Donna Masing fell off a wave and the tail of her own board collided with her temple. The force of that impact broke bones in her neck and rattled her brain from side to side, resulting in a traumatic brain injury. Upon returning home to Australia, Donna was unable to run her business, a sports massage clinic in Northern NSW where she attended to Australia's surfing elite and other professional athletes. She had difficulty speaking, walking, coping with groups of people, bright lights, had limited thinking capacity and could not focus on anything for any great deal of time. Doctors assured her that it would all pass and soon life would return to normal. However these things did not pass, in fact many symptoms got worse. In 2019 Donna was named the Northern Rivers NSW Business Chamber Outstanding Business Leader and went on to be a State Finalist. Donna has consulted for international Doctors, Physical Therapists and Concussion Specialists on how to communicate with their TBI patients, she has presented at medical conferences, been on speaking panels at events and was featured on the front pages of both the Tweed Daily Newspaper and The Tweed Valley Weekly. She is currently writing a book about her experiences on the other side of treatment table and is starting an innovative new company to help more people get access to the therapy that changed her life. https://globalperformancetherapy.com/about-us/ Brought to you by: Integrated Brain Centers
