Massage Therapy Scope of Practice
“The practice of massage therapy is the assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissues and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain.”
In Ontario currently, massage therapy is a regulated health care profession: like physicians, dentists, physiotherapists, and 21 other professions, registered massage therapists in Ontario are governed by provincial legislation and a regulatory college (the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario). RMTs are trained in the assessment and treatment of the soft tissue and joints of the body, to improve physical function and to relieve pain.
RMTs adhere to a strict Code of Ethics which expresses the primary ethical values, obligations and goals of the profession. It is a commitment which serves to bear witness to our promise as a profession to uphold the values and ethical obligations expressed in the Code.
