Ethics are standards of morally right and wrong behavior, setting the tone for appropriate policies and procedures for our profession, ensuring clients best interests are upheld in our client-centered practices. Our best practices and standards evolve as our profession evolves. Our industry’s governing bodies’ Codes of Ethics set our professional standards. In this class we’ll explore those and their application in our daily work treating clients. You will be equipped with current knowledge and know the highest, most current standards of ethical behavior.

Laws protect the public from fraudulent or deceptive practices. Our licensed profession is governed by the laws of each state. As our profession evolves and laws are updated to better serve consumers utilizing our services, our written laws are also updated under the Consumer Protection Act. Knowing our current laws, as they exist today, is critical to a massage and bodywork therapist’s ability to treat clients safely – and legally – understanding current laws.

The State of New Jersey, (N.J.S.A. 45:11-53 et seq., and Chapter 37A,) requires massage and bodywork professionals to take two hours of training in ethics and one hour in the law every biennial license renewal period. Two hours of this class will be devoted to ethics and one hour will be devoted to New Jersey law for our profession. Ethics and the law are subjects not only therapists should know, but spa and clinic owners and managers should know also. This class is open to anyone involved in our profession.
