What is Registered Massage Therapy or Manual Therapy?
Often used interchangeably we believe Manual Therapy is massage with intent.
RMT’s are trained in the assessment and diagnosis of soft tissue and joints of the body, the treatment and prevention of injury, pain and physical disorders.
RMT’s provide more than just a “hands-on” experience. Part of your treatments will be dedicated to assessment/reassessment and rehabilitative modalities including hydrotherapy, postural exercises, strengthening and stretching techniques to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment and management plan.

What is the difference between an RMT and an unregistered bodyworker?
Education for Registered Massage Therapists operating in British Columbia is the highest in North America.
RMT’s are designated Health Care Professionals and are regulated by the government under the BC Health Professions Act and are required to be registered under the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC).
Current Massage Therapy research supports the use of massage therapy as an effective approach to injury management and rehabilitation as well as part of a preventative care program. Massage can bridge the gap between our physical well-being and our mental or emotional state.
Now that you know the difference between an RMT and an unregistered bodyworker, you’ll be better equipped to seek out a professional massage therapist to help you in your situation.
