What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. Massage therapy is a clinically oriented and evidence based healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with every day occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.


RMTs (Registered Massage Therapist) assess and treat physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints of the body, mostly by hands-on manipulation. Assessment and treatment can include orthopaedic and neurological testing, soft tissue manipulation (Swedish massage is the most commonly used technique), hydrotherapy, remedial exercise programs and client education programs.


All RMT’s in Ontario must complete a comprehensive College program of health sciences and hands on practical skills after graduating they must complete the CMTO’s (College of Massage Therapist’s of Ontario) certification exams in order to practice within Ontario.
