Registered Massage Therapy
Registered massage therapy (RMT) services are offered at our two clinics in downtown Toronto, both accessible through the PATH. Our registered massage therapists have significant training and have engaged in extensive post graduate courses to be able to provide the most comprehensive treatment plans possible.
They utilize therapeutic treatments that include both relaxation and deep tissue techniques, so whether you are suffering from muscle tightness, tension from overuse and/or stiff joints, our downtown Toronto Registered Massage Therapists can help you.
Registered Massage Therapists are healthcare professionals that are regulated by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. They use a variety of hands on techniques to manipulate the soft tissues in your body (muscles, connective tissues, joints, tendons and ligaments) in order to provide therapeutic relief, decrease your pain and optimize your health.
Massage therapy can aid in the recovery of injured tissues and overused muscles in the body. In addition, RMTs can compliment other forms of therapy including physiotherapy, chiropractic care and acupuncture by speeding up the recovery process and preventing future re-injury.
