This is the best ethics course I have seen yet. The content was very clear, to the point and very professional. I learned a lot compared to any class I've attended on Ethics.. I also liked being able to print off the material so that I can refer to it in the future. Thanks!
Adria Valent, LMP, NCTMB
Wow I thought I understood lymph but this just explained so much more - and kept the information at a level for therapist to explain the process of the lymph system to clients - and make it understandable
Kristin Gaulin, LMT, NCTMB
I deal with many patients on a daily basis struggling with chronic pain.This course presented information that will be very useful in viewing these cases in a different, more understanding light. I have used the Institute before and have always been extremely pleased. Would definitely use again and recommend to others. Thank you!!

I work in a hospice setting. The information presented was invaluable to me. Both Sharon's and Irene's open sharing was inspiring and made me proud to be in this profession, doing this work. The factual info was clear and concise and is a wonderful adjunct and resource for me. And reminds me how important it is to refresh what we know and hear it again and again. They are both wonderful role models...they make me strive to be the best I can. Well-informed, well-said information presented with care and compassion.
This course helped re-establish my values and intentions as a massage therapist. Thank you for providing such clear and concise information. I enjoyed the pictures as they served to enforce my learning experience.
