BC RMT (British Columbia Massage Therapist) is a distinct massage therapy designation that ensures a high quality, consistent therapeutic massage experience.
Because of this high level of training and education, most extended medical insurance providers recognize BC RMT’s work for reimbursement. Ask your insurance provider to be sure.
A massage therapist will work out serious adhesions or knots in the muscle tissue and sometimes there can be discomfort getting the muscle to release. Their massages are not necessarily relaxing in nature but sometimes they are or can be modified. You can speak to your therapist about comfort vs. getting the results you are looking for.
Many BC RMT’s offer both Massage Therapy and Relaxation Massage or a blend of both but not all. Great results can be experienced during or after one treatment. Sometimes clients opt to have regular massage therapy scheduled weekly or monthly depending on the nature of their condition.
People seek out BC RMT’s for the following
- Deep tissue release
- Therapeutic results
- Injury, sport rehabilitation
- General wellness
- Pre & post natal support (ask if your therapist offers this service)
After treatment you may feel light, relaxed, tired, sleepy, sometimes a bit puffy which are all signs from the body that there are shifts happening. Your therapist may give you exercises to do at home to continue to help work out your muscles and tight spots.
