Course Reviews

S. Sinclair, LMT, NCTMB


This was one of the most interesting ethics courses I've taken. Many topics were new to me and very timely and applicable. I actually felt that I took away some valuable information from this course.

Pamela Fuller, LMP


Completing this course was my first experience with IIHS. The course materials were very well organized and clearly written; the content was current and highly relevant; the course fee was reasonable; and the test questions were easy to understand. I will definitely seek future courses from IIHS. Thanks for such a positive experience!

Suzanne Bonnen, LMP


This course included all aspects of therapeutics, encompassing detailed descriptions and comparisons of each modality. The ethics of therapeutic massage are important and the additional information leads to a greater awareness for referring clients in need.

Martha Harger, LMT, NCTMB


I feel like the class really capture key points that ALL therapists need to know, and as a business owner having worked with multiple therapists for years, many of them could use this review!!

Mita Sigaard, LMT


Some of the legal terminology was very new and exciting and unexpected. I had never known the difference between a tort and a crime, or defamation vs. invasion of privacy. Most of these things are not discussed in relation to massage therapy.
