Advancing the Profession for a Healthier You

The RMTAO exists in order to advance the massage therapy profession in Ontario. Improvements in the ability of Registered Massage Therapists to provide quality care will improve the health of the people of Ontario whom the profession serves. While massage therapy will not "heal", the services provided by RMTs will assist in rehabilitation, promote recovery and help reduce stress.
