Somatic pioneer and visionary Aston will be among several others that will be inducted into the Massage Therapy Hall of Fame at the campus of Western Carolina University on July 16 at the Hall of Fame’s award ceremony. Aston will be the principal keynote speaker and will be teaching her Aston Sampler Class (14 CEUs) on July 16 and 17.

Aston’s far-reaching methods that include patented ergonomic products and her visionary spirit have been the hallmarks of the Aston paradigm that has been taught worldwide, and she has been recognized for her work by many organizations, including the American Massage Therapy Association, Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and IASE.
