What is RMT?
Registered Massage Therapists (RMT's) in British Columbia are health care professionals committed to restoring and maintaining optimal health and pain-free
function of the body.
They are educated and trained to accurately assess and treat with techniques that include massage and manual therapy, joint mobilization, hydrotherapy,
and rehabilitative exercise such as stretching, strengthening, postural exercise and patient education.
Massage Therapy is an effective approach to pain management and rehabilitation. RMT’s are effective in treating and providing relief for a wide range of
conditions such as migraine headaches, tendonitis, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, as well as many other common conditions
related to soft tissue and joint dysfunction.
A significant rise in massage therapy use in BC can be attributed to higher educational standards, extensive research studies proving the efficacy of massage
therapy, and an overall increase in public interest in non-surgical and drug-free treatment options.
