Massage therapy has evolved into the mainstream of therapeutic services offered in BC with most physicians regularly referring their patients for massage treatment.
The Massage Therapy Profession in BC
BC RMTs are some of the most highly trained massage therapists in the World, enduring a 3-year, 3000 hour program of instruction (currently the highest standard in North America) in order to gain their certification. The profession is government regulated ensuring public safety and ethical care, and that high standards of practice are met. Furthermore, Registered Massage Therapists are required to regularly attend post graduate courses, ensuring that they are kept up-to-date on the latest advances in the profession.
Whether found in rehabilitation centres, long-term care facilities, working for professional sports teams, in private practices, or multi-disciplinary clinics (such as our North Shore Wellness Centre), BC Registered Massage Therapists are in high demand across the province in a large variety of therapeutic settings. Increasingly over time, the RMT designation: “Registered Massage Therapist” – a reserved title under the Health Professions Act – has become synonymous with smart, safe and effective healthcare.
