We need your help to support university level massage education and the students that are pursuing that path. Consider donating to the scholarship fund. Any amount helps. As a thank you, all donors will be publicly acknowledged on the Erik Dalton blog and in the Techniques Tuesday newsletter. (Donation amount will not be disclosed).

Indiana State University’s Applied Medicine and Rehabilitation Department honoring Erik Dalton with a “Distinguished Affiliate Faculty Member” award. 

ISU Myoskeletal instructor Charlie Peebles and department chair Dr. John Pommier presented Erik Dalton with the award at the Hulman Memorial Student Union.

The successful collaboration between Indiana State University and the Freedom From Pain Institute began in 2012 and was aptly named the “Advanced Myoskeletal Massage Therapy” program. This partnership has resulted in the only minor degree in massage therapy platform offered by a major United States university.

Whitney Lowe summed it up best when he said: “This is a significant move forward for massage therapy education and a possible model for different forms of advanced education in partnership with other schools and programs.”

To elevate the status and continued growth of the Indiana State University program, the Freedom From Pain Institute is in the process of financing an ongoing continuing education scholarship grant to help fund additional qualified and passionate students.
