Help Dave Train for LMT

Licensed Massage Therapy

I know what it is like to live with chronic bodily illness.  It was not too long ago that I emerged from 12+ years of intensive health limitations.   Along the way, bodywork practitioners were totally invaluable to me and I am now drawn to helping others with my hands.  In fact, I have a mission to assist in the healing of people who are struggling on the path back to health.

There's an ideal program close to me--the Sun Institute in Closter, NJ, a part of NJ Integrative Health)--that  offers training in many forms of healing.  The part-time, 10-month training that I want begins mid-March, and I need to make a down payment of $2,500 to secure my spot.  

I am seeking assistance to cover this initial down payment. There is now a healthy vigor in me that is wanting to make people feel better.  The call to be of service in a health-restoring way is resounding inside, and I am determined to act on it as soon as possible.  Your support will be treasured by me and put to very good use.  My intention is to enroll soon--in less than a month!  If inspired, please support my pursuit.

Donations will be happily rewarded with gifts and bodywork treatments! 
*The first $50 donor receives a homestead, handcrafted food and remedy package.
*Subsequent $50+ donations entitle you to a surprise gift.
*Donations of $100+  entitle you to a full hour+ treatment.
