This is the best ethics course I have seen yet. The content was very clear, to the point and very professional. I learned a lot compared to any class I've attended on Ethics.. I also liked being able to print off the material so that I can refer to it in the future. Thanks!

I love taking these courses online. It's convenient, I study the material on my own time, it's informative and I appreciate that it is made available. Thanks for a very positive experience that is very relevant and high quality.
This course helped re-establish my values and intentions as a massage therapist. Thank you for providing such clear and concise information. I enjoyed the pictures as they served to enforce my learning experience.

This helped me understand how all entities of govenment work with the board of health.

The course materials were as well put together, easy to follow and understand, and well served to meet my continuing education requirements as all prior CE courses from IIHS have been. I am always severely disappointed to see the promotion of the cult of bureaucratization take over the massage occupation. For example the definition of a client/therapist relationship as an unequal power dynamic, rather than a relationship in which both sides gain mutual benefit; or the idea that "dual" relationships are not something humans are capable of balancing maturely; or the idea that if we do not take continually increasing amounts of CE classes, and feed the growing massage bureacracy industry, that we will not be respected. However, for none of these things do I blame IIHS, which has always provided me with a quality product.
