Complete patient care.
BC’s Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) are primary health care professionals committed to every aspect of health and pain-free functioning of the body. RMTs evaluate health needs and provide active and passive techniques for complete patient care.
Increasingly, scientific research supports the use of massage therapy as an effective Health Care approach. RMTs work with illness, injury and disability in diverse and broad patient populations. They are primary health care professionals that focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal and related systems.
“Research shows that massage therapy including remedial exercise can reduce pain, anxiety and stress, improve joint movement, sleep and ones quality of life.”
Medical physicians regularly refer patients to an RMT. These referrals are made because registered massage therapy is both accessible and effective in the treatment of numerous medical and health conditions.
