Congratulations to Manitoba RMTs who have joined four other Canadian provinces including Ontario who Regulate the Massage Therapy Profession. What does this mean for you, as a consumer?: First and foremost, regulation protects the public by implementing minimum standards, procedures, regulations, and a code of ethics for safe and effective treatment. It imposes disciplinary actions for misconduct and it is what differentiates a “Massage Therapist” from a “Masseuse”. Anyone can call themselves a “Masseuse” but only a Regulated Massage Therapist (RMT) can provide Massage Therapy legally and safely. The regulation of massage therapy improves the standards of education so that when you book an appointment with a Massage Therapist,.

Ever wonder what your massage therapist is really thinking about while you are thinking “Did I shave my legs?” This pretty much is exactly what I am thinking about while treating my clients. I came across these photos on Facebook. For more pictures like these, search “Back in Motion Therapeutic Massage” in Facebook.
Study Shows Massage Therapy is Cost-Effective This study shows that Massage Therapy might be the most effective treatment to improve quality of life for back pain patients among other non-physician practitioners. It also demonstrates that Massage Therapy, along with other specialities such as osteopathic, family/general, internal medicine doctors, and chiropractors were more cost-effective than other specialties for the treatment of back pain. Side note: Currently there is some controversy about the effects of Massage Therapy for low back pain. Some studies show that it is effective, and other show that it may not be so. There seems to be a correlation but causation has yet to be determined. Be skeptical.
If you love massage, we can make it work for you in any condition you are in. I came across this video about Oncology Massage and this therapist did a great job articulating how I feel about every massage therapy treatment I provide. It doesn’t matter who are, what condition(s) you have, or how much pain you are in. A good Massage Therapist will know how to modify techniques to make them work for you. I try to listen to your body with your input and provide the best possible treatment that is relevant to what your body needs in that moment. Sure, when indicated, I might suggest a treatment.
Massage Therapy is not the only way to touch someone who is experiencing pain. Pain comes in all forms. I touch people with my hands in an effort to ease their pain. This guy touches people with his voice. Bottom line is…people need to be touched. Who touched you the last time you were in pain?
