The TEDS Foundation was started by Brenda Schultz-McCarthy and her husband Sean McCarthy. Brenda is a former top 10 ranked professional tennis player, 2x Olympian & World Record Holder. Sean is a holistic health coach and peak performance expert.
When Brenda was at the height of her career, she suffered a major back injury and was told she would never play tennis again. They tried everything from chiropractic, deep tissue massage, yoga, anti-inflammatory supplements, therapeutic diets and even surgery. While each of these methods offered some relief, Sean & Brenda still knew something was missing.
Brenda and Sean discovered that the missing link was unconscious stress. They found that unless this stress is released, the body and mind can not fully heal. They began learning and developing various techniques to identify and eliminate unconscious stress.
Seven years after she was told that she would never play again, Brenda returned to professional tennis and broke the world record for fastest serve in the world (130 MPH).
After this incredible comeback, Sean & Brenda realized that the best way to address unconscious stress is by taking a holistic approach, focusing on every area of life, including:
Brenda and Sean developed the TEDS approach to life to share this holistic approach by which people can get connected in all areas of their lives and learn to Think the right way, Eat the right way, Do the right things and be a person of Service.
Since then, Sean and Brenda have taught these TEDS principles to hundreds of families, athletes and individuals to help them overcome major obstacles in their lives.
