Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) is a specialized form of healthcare that focuses on the assessment, treatment, and prevention of various physical conditions through manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body.
The primary goal of RMT is to promote healing, enhance overall well-being, and restore the optimal functioning of the body. RMTs use their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology to assess clients’ conditions and develop individualized treatment plans. They employ a variety of hands-on techniques.
The benefits of RMT are multifaceted. Through skilled manipulation of soft tissues, RMTs can improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, alleviate pain, increase range of motion, promote tissue healing, and enhance overall physical and mental well-being. The therapeutic effects of massage therapy extend beyond the physical realm, as it can also induce relaxation, reduce stress, improve sleep quality, and enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
RMTs treat a wide range of conditions, such as muscular tension, sprains, strains, chronic pain, postural imbalances, sports injuries, and stress-related disorders. It is also know to help with symptoms of cancer, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, headaches, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, pregnancy, stroke, and TMJ disorder. They often work collaboratively with other healthcare professionals, such as physicians, chiropractors, physiotherapists, and osteopaths, to provide comprehensive care for their clients.
We will help you manage your own wellness and health more efficiently to live a vibrant and full life.
RMTs apply various techniques and modalities to cater to the clients specific condition, preferences, and treatment goals. These may include Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, lymphatic drainage, sports massage, prenatal massage, and joint mobilizations.
RMTs play a vital role in supporting individuals in their journey toward improved health, mobility, and quality of life.
what people are saying
We have implemented excellent protocols to ensure the health and safety of our clients, staff, and community. Due to the nature of our work and close proximity to one another during treatments, we continue to require that everyone wear a mask while in the clinic. If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you reschedule your appointment to help us maintain the health and well-being of all clients and staff. We will continue a high level of sanitization. We greatly appreciate your understanding of the extra steps required to ensure everyone’s safety.
On your very first visit to our clinic, our practitioner will conduct a full health survey. You will have the opportunity to tell us about your pain and any health issues that you had in the past or are currently experiencing and also tell us about any medical interventions and treatments that you have had. The practitioner will then work with you to discuss any other issues that might be relevant to the condition, before performing a full and complete physical assessment. This helps us to rule out any major causes while also giving us a better understanding of your condition. We will then work with you to develop a treatment plan. Your practitioner may also provide advice on diet, posture, exercise and lifestyle if this is appropriate, as this may help to alleviate the severity of your condition.
Normal underwear and loose clothing are always the best options. Consider sweatpants, leggings or shorts, and a t-shirt for your own comfort.
We believe and understand that every person is different, and everybody needs some time to adapt after every treatment. Some clients need only a couple of appointment; others may have a course of therapy or return periodically for the long-term management and prevention of conditions. Normally the treatment of a client is determined according to their progression rather than the prescription of a set number of treatment sessions.
Treatments are not covered by MSP.
However, you may be able to claim treatments under some Extended Health Care Plans (Sun Life, Great West Life, Empire Life, Manulife, RWAM, Pacific Blue Cross, Greenshield, Industrial Alliance and Wawanesa) or an existing Corporate Health Care Expense account, contact your health plan or HR for more information.
If you cannot come to your session, please do let us know 24-hours in advance else you will be charged the full amount of the appointment. The same concept applies to no-shows. We do understand that in some exceptional circumstances this is not possible. A flexible cancellation policy applies if you have COVID-19 symptoms.
