Just because massage feels like a pampering treat, doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan. Massage Therapy is the physical manipulation of the soft-tissue structure of the body to gain a therapeutic response. It is highly effective in treating headaches, lower back pain, pregnancy-related aches, tendinitis or simply to relax and promote wellness.

Q. What are the treatment differences between a Registered Massage Therapist and a Spa Technician?
A. A spa technician’s focus during a massage revolves around relaxation and self-pampering. The techniques used can include Swedish, aromatherapy and hot stone. However, RMTs complete approximately 3,000 hours of training at an accredited school and pass the exams set out by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. They must also make a commitment to continue their education upon graduation to stay relevant and updated on techniques.
When you’re experiencing muscle pain or soreness, have an injury or specific health conditions, it may be time to choose a Registered Massage Therapist. Therapeutic treatments offered include: Therapeutic Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Pregnancy Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, Structural Integration, and Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) among others.
Although massage therapy also focuses on the benefits of relaxation, it is also distinguished as being qualified to treat from a ‘health care’ perspective. Registered Massage Therapists in Ontario are Health Professionals and will use a health history and a detailed assessment to figure out the issue, create a treatment plan and treat based on that. Conditions such as strains/sprains, headaches, fibromyalgia, arthritis, TMJ dysfunction and many more can all be effectively treated through massage therapy. As such, an appointment with an RMT is not all massage – assessment is part of the treatment and is included in the time that you have booked.
