Course Reviews

Lori Kelly, NCTMB

Very informative class that translates well to massage therapy and everyday life. Great class.

A. Mowery, LMT

I have been a massage therapist for 13 years which makes it difficult to find information I haven't heard before. This was probably the most comprehensive course I have taken and it also has some good NEW information.

Bernadette Carlton, LMT

Once again this information is compiled in a logical way. It is a very good refreshment of my knowledge on HIV/AIDS facts and understanding. I will use Integrative Healthcare courses for any future requirement. I will most definitely return to review this material I have tested on throughout the year!

Cynthia Frey, LMT, NCTMB

I really appreciated that the test questions were not all in order corresponding to the course material. That requires students to read the text more closely which leads to better retention. Much of this was familiar information, and some was new, which was most welcome in a 1 hour course. Thanks!

Crystal Guengerich, LMT

I appreciate that the content was presented in an objective, nonjudgmental manner. No discrimination in relation to sexual orientation or sexual behaviors was present. I have a family member living with AIDS, and have seen how hurtful ignorance and judgment (even from healthcare workers) can be.
