Pain to Empowerment
December 9, 2015
Hosted by Karen Leavitt
My featured guest is Tina Michaud-Gray, RN. We talk candidly about her journey from a car accident in the 1980's that left her with a traumatic brain injury, to that point where she knew she wanted more for herself, including a better quality of life not bound to medications, side effects, and to be free from pain. She then studied to become a Licensed Massage Therapist while still recovering. This was key for her as she had an awakening. The holistic medicine, therapies and treatments were part of her life with proven results. Tina then went to Nursing school and became an RN. She healed herself with the non-invasive technology she developed to be used with post-surgical wounds, acute and chronic pain management. Her vision and passion became reality and she is assisting those with chronic pain. This often equates to a life with prescription medications, and with those healing from procedures, reducing down time and having an overall improved quality of life free from pain empowered to live.

The Sky’s the Limit is a motivating, inspirational program which is based on my journey from medical professional to patient, highlighting people from all walks of life and various stages of overcoming adversity, their challenges and awakening to the rediscovery of themselves, a transformation. I engage with a number of successful life coaches, authors, athletes and everyday people who discuss their journey and process as well as exploring the concepts of Eastern and Western medicine. We are all learning life’s lessons every day and living in the moment, no matter where we are in our journey.
