Massage therapy is a form of manual therapy where the soft tissues and joints of the body are manipulated using a variety of touch based techniques.  These techniques treat the entire body, having the greatest effect on the musculoskeletal, nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.   Massage Therapy achieves undeniable results in the relief of an array of discomforts stemming from stress, muscular overuse and many chronic pain syndromes.

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. When looking for a qualified practitioner, look for someone who uses the title Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) and the equivalents in other languages.
