What Is Massage Therapy?
Massage Therapy is an ancient therapeutic technique considered to be one of the oldest forms of treatment known to man. Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues of the body to gain a therapeutic effect
Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation involving a range of techniques to treat the soft tissue and joints of the body. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function or relieve pain.
While many individuals might provide “massage”, massage therapy should be provided by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). An RMT is an individual who has completed a diploma program at a recognized school of massage therapy and who has passed a registration examination offered by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.
