Why Registered Massage Therapy?

 

Public demand for Registered Massage Therapy has risen significantly in B.C. This is attributed to scientific research supporting the use of massage therapy as an effective approach in pain, injury management, rehabilitation and prevention. Increased public interest in non-surgical and drug-free treatment for musculoskeletal conditions and pain management has further driven the public to seek out RMT’s.

Massage Therapy is effectively used to treat a wide range of medical conditions including occupational and posture related problems, accident related injuries, sports injuries, stress reduction, pregnancy related issues, headaches, circulatory/lymph and nerve conditions.
