GENERAL INFO

Who is a Massage Therapist?

RMTs are regulated Healthcare professionals that complete a specialized government-approved program at an accredited college. This program requires rigorous study and a thorough understanding of anatomy physiology, pathology, neurology, kinesiology and clinical sciences.

All RMT's must complete registration exams set by the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC) and must continue with post graduate studies to maintain registration. RMT's honor a code of ethics set by the CMTBC which ensures that clients receive safe, competent and ethical care.

What does a RMT do?

RMT's are trained to evaluate and treat individual health needs based on a client's health history and assessment results. RMT's are taught to provide manual therapeutic techniques to directly affect the musculoskeletal, circulatory and neurological systems of the body to promote continued health and to rehabilitate injured soft tissue.
