What is Registered Massage Therapy?
Registered Massage Therapy (RMT) involves the therapeutic manipulation of the body’s soft tissues – muscles, connective tissues, tendons, ligaments – as well as the treatment of joints. The goal is to alleviate discomfort associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular overuse, and many chronic pain conditions, and injuries.
RMTs are trained to evaluate individual health needs, and provide active and passive techniques for complete patient care. They use their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology to treat a variety of conditions, enhance function, aid in the healing process, improve circulation, and promote relaxation and overall well-being.
A vital aspect of a RMT is empowering clients with knowledge and tools for self-care. Registered Massage Therapists are dedicated to educating clients about their health, promoting an active role in their personal care journey. This ensures optimal, long-term benefits from each therapy session.
The “Registered” in Registered Massage Therapist signifies that the practitioner has completed a certain level of training and is registered with the CMTO (College of Massage Therapists of Ontario), ensuring they meet and maintain the standards of practice and conduct set by the regulator.
Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) can help with a wide range of conditions. Here are some of the most common:
These include conditions like back, neck, and shoulder pain, sciatica, whiplash, strains and sprains, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, sports injuries, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction.
These can include conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Massage therapy can help to reduce the frequency and intensity of tension headaches and migraines.
RMTs can play a crucial role in the rehabilitation process, helping to improve range of motion and reduce scar tissue following surgery or injury.
Prenatal massage can help alleviate some of the discomfort associated with pregnancy, such as backache, leg cramps, and swelling.
Massage therapy is often used to help reduce stress and anxiety levels, helping to promote relaxation and improve mental health.
