About

Greetings! Welcome to Borderlands of Health and Wellness. My name is Ashley M. Heidi Carter. I thank you for stopping by and hope that as you browse this site, that you find what you are looking for. If I can be of assistance, there is a contact form below.

The purpose of this site is to provide a window into the Wellness field from the standpoint of a practitioner. This site is still under construction and new information is being added every week.            Heidi Photo

I am a graduate of The Atlanta School of Massage and hold dual certifications in Integrative Deep Tissue and Neuromuscular Therapy. I have also been a member of the NCBTMB since 1999. I obtained my undergraduate degree from the University of North Alabama and received a BS in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Health and Business concentration and minor in History. I am currently pursuing a paralegal associates degree in Nashville and work as a Licensed LMT for Massage Envy. I have extensive and proficient experience as a Massage and Spa Therapist with Destination and Resort Spas and have also assisted the start-up of a Professional Massage Therapy program at the community college level.

This blogs name derives from a class taught at the University of North Alabama by PhD Dan Burton: Borderlands of Science and Religion. I was his student in 2010 and it just so happens that History is my first love. My father is also a UNA alumnus in History and Political Science. His academic patron was Dr. Geyser. Dr. Burton is my patron saint of research.
