  • an explanation of your treatment plan and goals prior to treatment

A RMT must have fulfilled the academic and practical requirements before attempting registration. Registered members have successfully completed a comprehensive written theory exam and an oral practical exam developed and administered by the certification board of the CMTO. As a RMT we must present annual documentation demonstrating continued professional development to maintain their status with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.

 

Registered Massage Therapy is recognized by insurance companies, but you must check your individual plan to see what your massage therapy coverage is, not all plans are the same.
