What is Registered Massage Therapy and How is it Beneficial to my Health?
Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) is a therapeutic massage designed to treat a variety of pains and ailments throughout the human body. RMT Massage has proven to be effective in the treatment of both, acute and chronic health conditions. For many years, athletes have been using Registered Massage Therapy as a method of preventative care. It is safe and can be effective for people of all ages.
All BC RMTs are governed by The College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC). In order to be RMT certified, Therapists spend thousands of hours studying in the fields of anatomy and physiology. Much of their studies are also focused on developing specialized massage techniques that assist in rehabilitation of injuries from physical activity or car accidents. Patients who use Massage Therapy on a regular basis notice day-to-day mobility and function of their body is greatly improved. In addition, those with injury or pain within their body will notice acceleration in the healing and recovery process. The overall goal is to help patients lead a more enjoyable, pain free, quality of life.
