Advanced Myoskeletal Massage Therapy Program

I would like to thank Indiana State University’s Applied Medicine and Rehabilitation Department for honoring me with a “Distinguished Affiliate Faculty Member” award. ISU Myoskeletal instructor Charlie Peebles and department chair Dr. John Pommier presented me with the award at the Hulman Memorial Student Union following my Myoskeletal Therapy lecture and demonstration last Thursday, May 2.

The successful collaboration between Indiana State University and my 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. The program is attracting a variety of health professionals including massage, physical and occupational therapists. 

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 qualified and passionate students of physical medicine. 

Thanks to Dr. John Pommier, Charlie Peebles, Kim Miller, Barbara Kardokus, Teri Dalton, and all the Freedom From Pain Institute teachers and staff for making this program such a groundbreaking success.
