What is Registered massage Therapy?

Registered massage therapy is a form of healthcare in Ontario, Canada that involves massaging soft tissues to help alleviate pain, improve circulation, reduce stress, and promote overall wellness. It is performed by Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs or MTs) who have completed specific education, clinical hours, and exams regulated by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. RMTs must also participate in continuing education to maintain their registration and high professional standards. Only RMTs are permitted to use the titles Massage Therapist or Registered Massage Therapist. The Ontario Massage Therapist Association requires all members to be registered with the College as well.

What should I expect on my first visit?

On your first visit, you will be asked to complete a confidential health history form which will be reviewed in the privacy of the treatment room. In order to develop a safe and effective treatment plan, the initial process may involve some assessment, palpation and testing.
Your Registered Massage Therapists will also describe the treatments to be provided to ensure that you are comfortable with them. Your consent is sought before treatment is provided. If you are uncomfortable, your RMT wants you to let them know immediately, whether that discomfort involves the treatment, draping or any pain you may experience.
Your privacy will be respected at all times. The therapist will leave the room so that you may disrobe and cover yourself on the table. You may remove as little of your clothing as you are comfortable with. During the treatment, you will be draped so that only the part of your body being treated is uncovered.
Communication is a key element of an effective massage and ensures that your treatment goals are being met. You will have the opportunity to give feedback throughout the treatment to have the pressure adjusted to meet your needs.

How will massage therapy benefit me?

Massage therapy can relieve muscular tension and pain, improve range of motion, and reduce mental stress levels, providing both physical and emotional benefits.

How often will I need treatments?

Your body can tell you when it needs massage therapy. Depending on the issue, some people may need only a few sessions, while others may benefit from ongoing massage as a proactive and preventative healthcare measure. Massage therapy can keep your muscles in good shape, increase flexibility, and even help heal injuries.

How old does a person need to be to receive massage therapy?

Massage therapy treatments are suitable for all age groups, from newborns to patients receiving palliative care

Which regions of my body get massaged?

During your session, the therapist will inquire about your goals and any chronic issues you may have, in order to identify the areas of your body that require attention. A standard full-body massage typically includes your neck, back, shoulders, arms, hands, legs, and feet.

Will I experience muscle soreness following a massage therapy treatment?

Massage sessions frequently result in people feeling deeply relaxed with significant relief from aches, pains, and stress. However, if deep-tissue massage is needed, some people may experience mild muscle soreness for a day or two after the session. Once the soreness subsides, they often experience increased energy levels and improved range of motion. Overall, massage therapy can leave you feeling revitalized and rejuvenated, with a renewed sense of well-being.

I'm not sure I'm comfortable with a stranger touching me.

Many first-time clients of massage therapy may feel a bit uneasy due to the personal nature of the treatment. However, this apprehension usually fades away within the first few minutes of the session. Massage therapists are trained professionals who prioritize your comfort and well-being, and they always respect your boundaries and preferences. Their goal is to help you relax and feel at ease during the session, so you can fully enjoy the benefits of massage therapy.

Do I have to take off all of my clothes?

To make your massage therapy session successful, it's important for you to feel relaxed and comfortable. The decision to remove clothing is entirely up to you, and you should only undress to a level that you're comfortable with. In traditional full-body massage, direct contact with the skin is preferred for the best results. However, during the session, you will be fully draped with a sheet or blanket, and only the specific area being worked on will be exposed. You will have complete privacy to undress and dress before and after the session. The goal is to make you feel at ease and respected throughout the treatment.
