This course on communication/ethics is an excellent curriculum to be included for all massage schools. It is an important concept for young people and/or any new therapist to enhance their effectiveness for their career. I have mentored several beginning therapists and this book would have been great for "required" reading.

I was able to immediately implement the principles in my practice and in my class lectures, as well as daily life. I'm really grateful that this was an option and I got to learn this material. Thanks so much!
