Massage Therapy

There are tremendous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments from a Registered Massage Therapist.  Whether your need is to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being.

What is a Registered Massage Therapist?
Massage therapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario and all RMTs are required to be registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO). A Registered Massage Therapist is an individual who has:
  • Completed competency-based education at educational institutions recognized by the Government of Ontario;

  • Studied anatomy, physiology, pathology, physical assessment, neurology, treatments, ethics and other subjects;

  • Completed a minimum of 150 clinical hours;

  • Successfully completed examinations from and have been "registered" by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (the College) in accordance with the Regulated Health Professions Act and the Massage Therapy Act;

  • Maintained their registration by participating in continuing education and a Quality Assurance Program that assists them in the maintenance of high professional standards and quality care of their clients.

Massage for Health Maintenance

Massage therapy can be an important part of your health maintenance plan by:

  • Improving lymphatic drainage 

  • Reducing muscular tension

Massage therapy can be used for the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions. RMTs can work with a wide variety of patients, of all ages, in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation and disability.
