RMTs and Research
Increasingly, scientific research supports the use of massage therapy as an effective approach in pain and injury management, rehabilitation and prevention.
Research shows that massage therapy is effective in reducing pain, anxiety and stress. Massage therapy will also improve muscle strength, joint movement and a patient’s sleep and quality of life.
In BC, RMTs have completed a specialized program at an accredited college. The approved curriculum requires rigorous study and a thorough understanding of pathology, neurology, anatomy, remedial exercise, kinesiology, physiology and clinical sciences. All RMTs must complete the BC registration exams set by the College of Massage Therapists of BC (CMTBC), and must continue with postgraduate studies to maintain registration. RMTs honour a strict code of ethics set by the CMTBC, which ensures that patients receive safe, competent, and ethical care.
RMTs are primary contact health care providers. Referrals are not required for Medical Services Plan (MSP) coverage. MSP covers massage therapy for patients who qualify for premium assistance. You may also have coverage through your extended health care plan. For injuries or conditions referred by a physician, ICBC, WorkSafeBC (WCB), the RCMP and others may also provide coverage.
