Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) are primary healthcare professionals committed to every aspect of health and pain-free functioning of the body. RMTs evaluate health needs and provide active and passive techniques for complete patient care. Modalities may include massage therapy, manual therapy, joint mobilization, hydrotherapy, and rehabilitative exercise.
Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including, muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy is a clinically-oriented healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stress, muscular overuse and many other acute and chronic pain conditions.
Medical physicians regularly refer patients to RMTs. These referrals are made because registered massage therapy is both accessible and effective in the treatment of numerous medical and health conditions. For optimal health and quality of life, a Registered Massage Therapist should be part of every Canadian’s personal healthcare team.
