The course material is planned out in an easy to read format. The information was very helpful and reminded me of how important it is to remember these ethics. I was able to complete the course in a timely manner. I highly recommend this course to all massage therapists

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.

- Maria Munoz, LMT
Initially the material seemed cumbersome but, after settling in and taking the time to comfortably read the material I found it to be just what I was looking for. After seventeen years in this business I found it necessary to re-learn boundaries. There was new views which I found helpful. The bill of rights for the client and practioner were wonderful and I will begin using them for new clients! Thanks so much!

I was quite pleased and satisfied with this ethics course because I am able to have the information differently after a little round of cancer last year. I realized part of the problems I've been experiencing since beginning the cancer journey was due to ethical dissonance, for me a form of PTSD. This is the first time in my 20 years of practice that I did not struggle with 'having' to take an ethics course. Thank you for giving me peace.

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.
