Registered Massage Therapists in British Columbia are health care professionals committed to restoring and maintaining optimal health and pain-free function of the body. RMTs work with patients to help maintain and regain their quality of life.

Massage therapy is the assessment of the body's soft tissues and joints, and the treatment and prevention of dysfunction, injury, pain and physical disorders of the soft tissues and joints. Massage Therapists use techniques that can dramatically increase pain-free movement and improve a patient's ability to perform the activities of daily living. RMTs promote health by teaching patients therapeutic exercises, encouraging better postural habits for work, sport, leisure or sleep.

From the weekend athlete with an acute injury to the arthritic geriatric patient who is chronically disabled, people benefit from massage therapy as they return to previous levels of activity and productivity. Trained Massage Therapists are highly competent health care professionals with a large array of powerful therapeutic techniques at their disposal and the knowledge and skills to apply them effectively and safely. Massage Therapy is useful in restoring mobility, improving muscle strength, endurance, tone and flexibility and lessening the discomfort associated with chronic disorders. Registered Massage Therapists' extensive training allows them to meet a wide range of health care needs from injury rehabilitation to prevention and maintenance of overall health.
