BENEFITING: Massage Therapy Foundation Inc
EVENT DATE: Dec 31, 2014
Hi! My name is Ashley Heidi Carter. I have spent the past 17 years in the Spa and Wellness Industry as a Licensed Massage Therapist. I have a BS in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Health and Business concentration. I have not been able to find work due to not having a car and living in a rural small University town since I graduated in December of 2012. I have decided the best idea at this point is to Volunteer abroad. I have applied to the Peace Corps and Ameri Corp. However, I REALLY want to explore Medical/Health/Eco Tourism and Spa development in the Far East and South East Asian Markets. There is no better way that I can think of to make my resume stand out and attract new opportunities like a volunteer abroad experience would. I also have a small business idea and volunteering abroad and learning more first hand information about how these emerging industries are developing would be very valuable to me in deciding whether or not to pursue this idea. I have scoured and narrowed the field of possible Peace Corps Alternative Organizations down to two. To fund a six month trip I would need in the neighborhood of 7,000 safely. Anything beyond that amount would be set aside for future business projects in the Wellness and Health fields. I currently am a freelance writer in Wellness topics and I am working on a Neuromuscular Therapy Module. Its only introductory and the idea is to provide criteria for evaluating the crucial elements of a full NMT module before investing more than 15.00 dollars. Currently, the average NMT home study course that would provide all the necessary Home Study CEU's a LMT would need to renew a License or Certification start on average around $180.00 and can climb as high as $300.00 in some cases. By offering a short intro that can guide therapists in learning more about a given modality and about how to evaluate programs on the subject, it is my hope that this will be a service welcomed by the larger Wellness community.
