About Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy and Therapists

Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) in British Columbia are health care professionals committed to restoring and maintaining optimal health and pain-free function of the body.

They are educated and trained to accurately assess and treat with techniques that include massage and manual therapy, joint mobilization, hydrotherapy, and rehabilitative exercise such as stretching, strengthening, postural exercise and patient education.

Massage Therapy is an effective approach to pain management and rehabilitation. RMTs are effective in treating and providing relief for a wide range of conditions such as migraine headaches, tendonitis, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, as well as many other common conditions related to soft tissue and joint dysfunction.

Professional College

In BC, RMTs must complete a 3-year specialized program at an accredited college. The government-approved curriculum requires rigorous study and a thorough understanding of pathology, neurology, anatomy, remedial exercise, kinesiology, physiology and clinical sciences. All RMTs must complete the BC registration exams set by the College of Massage Therapists of BC (CMTBC), and must continue with post-graduate studies to maintain registration. RMTs honor a strict code of ethics set by the CMTBC, which ensures that patients receive safe, competent, and ethical care.

Coverage

RMTs are primary contact health care providers. Referrals are not required for Medical Services Plan (MSP) coverage. MSP covers massage therapy for patients who qualify for premium assistance. You may also have coverage through your extended health care plans. For injuries or conditions referred by a physician, ICBC, WorkSafeBC (WCB), the RCMP and others may also provide coverage.
