Registered Massage Therapy

What is Registered Massage Therapy?

Registered Massage Therapy is the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of normalizing those tissues and consists of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and/or causing movement of or to the body.

Generally, massage is known to affect the circulation of blood and the flow of blood and lymph, reduce muscular tension or flaccidity, affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and enhance tissue healing. These effects can provide a number of health benefits. Massage therapy can be combined with other treatments if recommended by your practitioner, such as Chiropractic.

The Canadian Massage Therapists Alliance (CMTA) has set a level of 2200 practice hours in both Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador, and 3000 hours in British Columbia, which has the highest education standard in North America.
