I enjoyed it all very much!!!! I feel I understand some new thoughts of ethics that may have been questionable for me before. Thank you for your classes and giving me the tools to be a successful practitioner!!!!

This course gave me a more detailed explanation and important reminder of what professionalism is all about and how important it is in the line of work that massage therapists do not only for our professional reputations but also the welfare of our clients.

I have been practicing 12 years, have advanced studies, and feel it was informative and met my needs very well. This course was a different take on "professional ethics" and loaded with great information.
Leslie Jasperson, CMT
I was really impressed with this class, initially thinking that it would not be able to hold my interest, but the presentation was clear and interesting. I enjoyed it and value it as a great review for the future. Thank you!

Excellent basic course on Legality and Ethics. I would recommend this course for new MTs, MTs who perhaps did not have a strong ethical foundation in their schooling, or MTs who can use a wake up call specifically in boundaries and client-first focus.
