The material is clear, informative and interestingly written. It took a subject that many of us have heard and/or read many times yet it,cleared out the cob webs and brought the subject clearly back to the forefront--in a crystal clear manner.
- Bruce A. Lederer, LMT, NCTMB
Very good material that covers all grounds on the subject. Excellent examples that explained ethical and unethical situations in detail of profession relations between therapist and client.
- Cynthia Meldrim, LMT
I learned a lot of things I didn't know about.
- Chevele Hardiman, LMT, NCTMB
Glad to see information on dual relaationships was included. The previous advice of "no dual relationships" doesn't work in a small town where everybody knows everybody.

The Laws continue to change every year..it is a good 'requirement' course ...to keep us sharp in the field. There is a lot of information here, I have to read it very slowly to ingest it all. Our field of massage therapy has grown immensely over the last twenty years.

Thank You, The materials have good information and the support was great.

- M. Piluras, LMT, NCTMB
Very nice course. Taking this course did enlighten me in a few new ways, thereby being a very worthwhile learning experience. The wording was a bit tricky on 1 or 2 of the questions. However, it really made me reread & think my answer through. I enjoyed this online course & I will continue to take online education with The Institute for Intgrative Healthcare Studies!
- S. Shafer, LMT
I lost a family member to a medical error in a teaching hospital. Knowing the statics, then taking this course allowed me to believe emotional instinct was right, our health care system needs to be re-evaluated.
