What Is Ethical Touch NCBTMB?

This course concentrates on the topic of ethics as it relates to daily bodywork dynamics and interpersonal relationships. This is an excellent and fascinating learning experience for yoga instructors and massage therapists who appreciate the ancient eastern sciences as they relate to today’s western world. In our industry, we are challenged daily with decisions that could adversely or positively affect our success and the professionalism of the industry. This course is unique such that it integrates eastern and western philosophies, standard V. roles and boundaries,  the yoga sutras and other more alternative theories.

Ethics and professionalism can be very personal, controversial and individual, so this course will address generalized issues determined by the code of ethics developed by the National Board of Therapeutic Bodywork and Massage (NCBTMB), The Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), and The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). There will always be situations you have to access uniquely and trust your judgment.
