Ideal for both established massage therapists who want to improve their new or current practice or massage therapy students, Experiential Ethics provides a comprehensive look at ethical issues commonly encountered in massage practices.
The course text, written by a massage therapist for massage therapists, shows how the principles of healthcare ethics directly correlate to the massage therapy profession, using the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association) Code of Ethics as a framework. Real-life business issues and situations that arise in a practice are addressed from massage therapists that have a wide range of professional experience.

This course was helpful and I especially appreciated that a massage therapist used her own experience in her practice and others' she interviewed to determine course contents to be of help to MT's.

This course helped me to better understand the ethical system in which we need to establish credibility in our profession. I enjoyed reading the "Real-Life Wisdom" the scenarios were a great way to confirm the ethical principles.
Ronda Throne, LMT
Having been in practice for more than 30 years (& taken numerous ethics courses for re-certification), I appreciate the refreshing choices of ethics credit options (that are not the usual dry content) that are available at the Institute for Integrative Healthcare Studies. THANKS!
Regina Driggs, LMP
Though I knew most of the things I read about, it was an excellent refresher course and am glad it is required for renewal of the NCBTMB credential. It helps us re-evaluate our standing with our clients and keep our profession in perspective. To me, hands-on is the way to go as you get more impact in the learning process, yet, having on-line courses is an excellent way to go when the courses you want or need don't match your schedule, not in the area, or you forgot until the last minute. This is my first on-line course and have thoroughly enjoyed it, thank you.

There can't be enough written on this vital topic for massage therapists. Lee's perspective is based on what we really need to hear about - the actual experiences we face.
