REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY
We provide complete individual treatment in the heart of Richmond
Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) are professionals providing integral treatment of those recovering from bodily injury. Consequently, RMTs may be called upon throughout the various stages of the legal process, in order to provide such services as: preparing reports, providing professional opinions and testifying in civil court proceedings and administrative tribunals. In British Columbia, over 75 percent of medical physicians regularly refer their patients to a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) - and they make these referrals because massage therapy is both accessible and effective in the treatment of their patients' conditions. This can be attributed to higher educational standards, research studies showing the efficacy of massage therapy, and an over-all increase demand for non-surgical and drug-free treatment options. -from "Registered Massage Therapists' Association of British Columbia
