REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY

 

Massage therapy is a drug-free approach to treating acute and chronic pain as well as stress related tension. Therapies involve hands-on mobilization of soft tissues and joints of the body. Soft tissues are muscle, ligaments, tendons and connective tissues/fascia of the body.

 

Massage has a therapeutic effect on your body's systems, including muscular, circulatory and nervous and is beneficial in the management of many conditions including:

 

 

  • headaches / migraines

  • whiplash

  • neck and shoulder pain

  • sciatica / low back pain

  • stress / tension

  • muscle spasm

  • tendonitis / bursitis

  • sprain / strain

  • arthritis

  • plantar fasciitis

  • fibromyalgia

 

 

Registered Massage Therapists are trained in the areas of massage theory, anatomy, physiology, pathology, kinesiology, hydrotherapy and remedial exercise related to massage therapy treatment. Training for Registered Massage Therapists also includes supervised clinical experience. After graduating, a candidate must pass a certification examination before they can register with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario and use the title Massage Therapist.

 

Massage Therapists (MT), Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) and its equivalents in other languages are protected titles and can only be used by individuals who have fulfilled the educational and registration requirements and have passed the College’s certification exams.
