Registered Massage Therapy
Our Registered Massage Therapist's provide therapeutic, relaxation and sport massage in a warm and welcoming clinical environment. Each treatment is unique to the needs of the patient. Your RMT will review your health history and treatment goals in a short interview at the beginning of your first appointment. Some treatment goals are more complex than others and may require some orthopedic and postural assessment to determine the cause of your symptoms.
RMT's are trained in a variety of techniques and will likely use a combination of them in your treatment. (Please see below for a description of treatment techniques). Whether you are coming in for a relaxation massage or treatment of an injury, it is important to give your therapist feedback about the depth of pressure they are using. Deeper is not always better and the saying "no pain, no gain" is completely inaccurate.
Homecare exercises and a treatment plan may be recommended for you.
Registered Massage Therapists in BC are the most highly trained in all of North America. They are regulated by the CMTBC (College of Massage Therapists of BC) and the MTABC (Massage Therapists Association of BC).
