Massage therapy is the manipulation and treatment of soft tissues and joints to develop, maintain, augment or rehabilitate physical function.  Although massage entered the mainstream as a common treatment for daily stresses and muscle aches it has since been growing within the physical therapy and medical communities.  As more research was performed, massage therapy earned its place beside such complimentary therapies as physiotherapy and chiropractic. It is now commonly employed as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety, nervous system disorders, repetitive strain injuries, postural imbalances and lymphedema.

The establishment of massage as a legitimate health care modality allowed Registered Massage Therapists to be regulated under the same government laws as doctors, nurses and other health professionals.  RMTs must pass provincial written and practical exams and are then bound by the regulations and standards of practice set forth by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario whose mandate it is to protect and educate the public.

Massage Therapy is defined as the assessment of soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction. Massage therapy helps to alleviate soft tissue discomfort and occupational stress, as well as muscular over use, injuries and chronic pain syndromes. Treatment will have a therapeutic effect to improve and maintain health by acting directly on the muscular, nervous, lymphatic and circulatory system
