There are angels among us and Topricin is proud to be in their presence.
The first angel is massage therapist Kate Peck. A graduate of the Muscular Therapy Institute, Kate has been in private practice for 16 years. She specializes in craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, burn scar therapy, and therapeutic massage. In addition to seeing clients in the office, Kate does home visits for the elderly and disabled. She has provided massage and craniosacral therapy for brain injured patients at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston, and has provided massage services to such events as the Boston Marathon, the Gravity Games, Pan Mass Challenge and the Cirque du Soleil. In addition, she spent 10 years on the sports medicine staff at Harvard University and has provided sports medicine coverage at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid and for the ESPN X-Games.
Kate’s accomplishments are great in the nation but it is her heart that is so admired and applauded. We are honored that Kate has been using Topricin and MyPainAway creams on her clients and that she has taken us to help in the healing of burn victims around the country – bringing a beacon of hope for all these amazing people.
Kate recently brought us to The Angel Faces Retreat in Wofeboro, NH for 17 adolescent girls age 12-22 with disfiguring burn/trauma injuries.
Writes Kate to Topical BioMedics, Inc. Aurora Paradise:
Thank you for making it possible for me to give each girl at The Angel Faces Retreat some tubes of Topricin. They were all so grateful to receive it, and those who have heard of it were even more excited!
Angel Faces was founded by another inspiring soul Lesia Cartelli. Lesia Cartelli endured a serious burn injury over 50% of her face and body from a natural gas explosion at her grandparents’ at the age of nine. Not wasting her pain, Lesia founded Angel Faces®, to inspire adolescent girls with severe facial disfigurements to achieve their optimum potential and develop meaningful relationships for themselves, their families and their communities.
Cartelli has written a book about her life experiences, called Heart of Fire: An intimate journey of pain, love and healing.
We are humbled and honored to be part of a network of angels. Thank you to all for shining your light into our lives. We are blessed to give-back.
