Impact of HST Exemption of on Patients
The primary argument we will be making to the government when we fight for HST/GST exemption for massage therapists across Canada is the positive impact it will have on patients
Massage therapy is an important part of healthcare, and can help people recover from surgery, cope with the physical sympoms of stress and anxiety, manage the painful side effects cancer treatments, and recover from musculoskeletal pain and injury.
Patients have to pay to access massage therapy care, and taxing massage therapy means that patients have to pay more for the healthcare they need. Tax exemption will make massage therapy more accessible and affordable so that patients can more easily access the healthcare they need.
