Drew Erickson, LMP, NCTMB

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. (Ethics)

Deborah Schick, BS, LMT, NCTMB

Always helpful to review this kind of couse! (Ethics)

Connie Strub, LMT, NCTMB

This was a healthy reminder and one that I love refreshing myself with. Everything here is so clear and I don't need to think about the material very often does bear repeating over and over. IT is so easy to slip from pure client/therapist relationships into dual after many years of working with clients. One does get to know one's clients very well and it is easy to slip into a more comfortable friendly relationship in which, the client might be late, one can go over time..or get together for coffee-a glass of wine at Christmas..I love maintaining the boundaries. Thank you for such a clear and clean course. Always good to remember how delicate the balance is. (Ethics)

Claudia Terlizzi Chapel, LMT, NCTMB

thank you for offering exactly the CEU # and content needed to renew my license. Too much or too little is aggravating. (Ethics)

Katherine Kessler, 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! (Ethics)

Pamela Ann Bennion, LMT

was wonderful (Ethics)

Lisa Collin, RMT, NCTMB

The course materials were as well put together, easy to follow and understand, and well served to meet my continuing education requirements as all prior CE courses from IIHS have been. I am always severely disappointed to see the promotion of the cult of bureaucratization take over the massage occupation. For example the definition of a client/therapist relationship as an unequal power dynamic, rather than a relationship in which both sides gain mutual benefit; or the idea that "dual" relationships are not something humans are capable of balancing maturely; or the idea that if we do not take continually increasing amounts of CE classes, and feed the growing massage bureacracy industry, that we will not be respected. However, for none of these things do I blame IIHS, which has always provided me with a quality product. (Ethics)

Having taught in-depth Neurology in Nursing; developed Continuing Education programs;as a Practicing Massage Therapist; a current Medical Hypnotherapist and former writer of test questions...... my evaluation: -the explanation of the pain process, the supporting physiology and the presentation style were among the easiest to understand and by far the best for student learning. -The flow of content was consistent and went from simple to complex in nature but still understandable -The test questions were constructed appropriately with the exception of #'s 10 & 21". Put "it" and "to" in the stem of the question to reduce redundancy in the foils. Kudos to the writer. Well done indeed !! (Chronic Pain)

My motivation for taking this course was to learn MLD techniques to use on my spouse, who had just been diagnosed with plasmacitic b-cell lymphoma. The physician-in-charge advised MLD would be beneficial if used in conjunction with his curative chemo-therapy. With approximately a week of MLD, I have witnessed a definite reduction in the diameter of her ankles, even before the chemo-therapy has started. Either the Institutes instructions are superb or I am a gifted masseuse. It doesn't matter which. We are getting results. (Edema)

I would not practice any of the modalities discussed until I took a hands-on course as treating this condition does require more expertise than I have.
