Massage School at SOLEX Medical Academy Receives BIOTONE Corporation Scholarship
Date:4/14/2010

The School of Massage Therapy at SOLEX Medical Academy is one of six recipients of the 2010 BIOTONE/Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA) Edu-Scholarship Fund. Even greater than the monetary aspect of the massage school scholarship is the recognition of the quality of education provided to the promising student that will be receiving the award.

(PRWEB) April 14, 2010 -- The School of Massage Therapy at SOLEX Medical Academy is one of six recipients of the 2010 BIOTONE/Commission on Massage Therapy Accreditation (COMTA) Edu-Scholarship Fund. Even greater than the monetary aspect of the scholarship is the recognition of the quality of education provided to the promising student that will be receiving the award.

Launched in 2007, the joint BIOTONE and COMTA program awards six BIOTONE-funded scholarships to selected COMTA accredited schools within the United States and Canada. The process includes submission of an essay addressing the reasons the massage school should be chosen, a statement of financial responsibility, and a statement of the most recent completion, placement and licensure rates. The schools then award their scholarships to deserving massage students who have achieved educational excellence at the mid-point of their curriculum.

COMTA is the only U.S. Department of Education-recognized accrediting body that specializes in massage therapy and bodywork education. COMTA is a non-profit independent body, which seeks to improve the quality of education for students in the fields of massage therapy and bodywork through an accreditation process that reflects current and emerging professional practice standards.

BIOTONE is a family-run, female-owned business founded in 1980. Headquartered in San Diego, CA, BIOTONE is the leading manufacturer of professional massage oils, cremes, lotions, gels as well as spa products.

The award of the BIOTONE/COMTA scholarship recognizes excellence in academic performance, the student's potential as a future massage therapist, leadership and participation in community activities, and/or unusual personal or family circumstances.

Valerie Bowers was selected by The School of Massage Therapy at SOLEX Medical Academy because of her exemplary performance while training to become a massage therapist. Valerie is a mother of three and a grandmother of six. She has excelled as a student at SOLEX Medical Academy while balancing her full time sales career, family obligations, and charitable work at her church.

It was at a church charitable function (just over one year ago) where Valerie decided to pursue her dream of becoming a massage and bodywork practitioner. "I was volunteering at a function, which was essentially a women's spa day, performing foot massages. After 3 or 4 years of procrastinating with the idea of formal massage training, it was then that I decided to take the leap."

Several months ago, the company that Valerie works for had to cut her hours due to a suffering economy. Then recently she learned that the company she has worked at for the past 17 years is relocating to the East coast in 2010. Valerie's devotion to her family precludes her from leaving the area.

"I would like to thank SOLEX, BIOTONE, and COMTA for this generous scholarship. The one-on-one instruction and the amazing diversity of the faculty at SOLEX has been great. My goal is to become an independent massage therapy practitioner and eventually open a treatment clinic offering a variety of modalities, nutritional counseling, and holistic education."

The School of Massage Therapy at SOLEX Medical Academy, founded in 2004, has been continuously accredited by COMTA since 2006. SOLEX is located in Wheeling, Illinois.
