The “Professional Ethics” bundle includes 3 CE hours. Classes included in this NCBTMB approved continuing education bundle:

Cultural Diversity and Professional Ethics, 1 CE

Professional Ethics, Roles and Boundaries for Massage, 2 CE

Cultural Diversity and Professional Ethics, 1 CE

Your clients will likely include, not only diverse cultures, races, and ethnicities, but at times, those who are mentally and/or physically handicapped. To promote your skills and knowledge as a massage therapist to culturally diverse clients, your awareness of such differences and understanding the ramifications of bias, discrimination, and stereotyping is important.

Cultural awareness will help you to improve the quality of your massage sessions. This awareness will also prove effective in eliminating barriers regarding culture to provide a positive influence on behaviors and practices within the massage industry.

Professional Ethics, Roles and Boundaries, 2 CE

The course on “Professional Ethics, Roles and Boundaries” will explore the professional role of the massage therapist in the therapeutic relationship.

Having the ability to “read” different situations and “redirect energy” is vital in today’s society and in our field.

Students will have the opportunity to learn how to effectively handle complex psychology situations that are relevant to the massage therapy field. Topics to be covered include:

  • Power Differentials
  • Personal Ethics vs. Professional Ethics
  • Client / Therapist Relationships
  • How to Establish and Maintain Professional Boundaries
  • Communication; Verbal and Non-Verbal
  • Trauma and Emotional First Aid in Session
  • Sexual Boundaries, Sexual Abuse and Statics
  • Prevention of Sexual Abuse in the Workplace
  • Dynamics of Relationships
  • Transference / Counter-Transference
  • Drama Triangle vs. Empowerment Triangle


All courses are completely online. Each course exam is graded instantly and, once you pass the multiple choice exam with 70%, your "Certificate of Completion" is immediately available for printing.
