What is Registered Massage Therapy?
Registered Massage Therapy is the treatment of musculoskeletal tissue through techniques that manipulate muscle, ligaments, connective tissue & bone structures. RMT’s can treat preventatively & both acute & chronic conditions. RMT’s treat using scientific reason & evidence-based theory to provide care. Though treatments can be relaxing they can also be very therapeutic & beneficial for providing relief from injury, stress & numerous other conditions. RMT programs in Canada’s regulated provinces have program lengths ranging from 2200hrs to 3000hrs. The RMT program is rigorous, extensive & the most in-depth program of its kind in the world. RMT’s do not just learn “how to massage” but how to treat over 70 conditions & further gain knowledge in the areas of neurology, pathology, physiology & more. RMT’s stand proudly next to other medical professionals who provide care & support aimed to helping people live their best life through decreasing pain, increasing mobility & offering hope for a future where pain isn’t an everyday occurrence.
