Dr. Susana Stoica, a Ph.D. in Computer Design Engineering, is the author of “Heal Your Brain, Reclaim Your Life: How to Recover and Thrive after a Concussion” and founder of Healing Alternatives, LLC.
After many years working as an accomplished engineer, in 1982, while attending a Polarity Healing course to help a family member who refused to seek medical help for his condition, Susana found herself drawn into energy healing. When sharing with her family what happened during the course, where she was able to help a woman with a serious breathing problem that was not responding to any medical solution, her father calmly informed her that she had been doing that kind of work since she was 7 years old. This gave Susana the impetus to seek more information about what energy healing was and how to use it properly, studying many different traditions of energy healing including Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Reconnection Healing and others, she was eventually certified as a Healing Touch Practitioner, a nursing discipline taught at the Colorado Springs Nursing School.
After being able to help her son who was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease, doctors found out about her capabilities and started referring people for help, both as a medical intuitive and energy healer. While working with many conditions, Susana had a special gift of working with the traumatized brain, be it from brain injury or stroke. The knowledge that she accumulated working with others served her well when, at age 53, she had two traumatic brain injuries on the same day. That brain injury changed her life forever and taught her the value of her gift of working with brain injuries.
After much determination, using research, therapies, and self-healing, nearly twenty years after the double head trauma, Susana is leading a productive life in service to others, teaching, speaking, writing and doing energy work.
After many years of teaching and speaking about brain injury and alternative healing to doctors, nurses, medical students, medical insurance companies, and lay people, Susana was invited to give a workshop on brain injury recovery at the Harvard Medical School in July, 2018.
In addition to “Heal Your Brain, Reclaim Your Life”, Susana also penned: “Reluctant Healer: An Introduction to Energy Healing”, published in 2016, and “Cooking after Brain Injury: Easy Cooking for Recovery”, to be released by end of July, 2018.
