Massage Therapy can help with many common complaints we suffer from every day. Did you know that only certain people can professionally provide Massage Therapy therefore call themselves Registered Massage Therapists?
Your treatments are sure to be safe and effective as RMTs adhere to a provincial standard of regulation. To that end, it is important to ensure your healthcare providers are in good standing with their regulating body. For RMTs in Ontario, that’s the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO).
The CMTO sets the standards of practice that RMTs follow thus ensuring consistency across the field. They also administer a Quality Assurance Program that allows auditing of an RMT’s practice as well as requires continued education. Importantly, the CMTO is the governing body you can go to if you have a concern or complaint about an RMT that you’d like to report. They investigate and can remediate and discipline if needed. In short, the CMTO helps to keep you, the public, safe by ensuring a high standard for the profession.
