Massage Therapy

You are here

The popularity of massage therapy has increased over the last 20 years, as people add holistic health care to their overall health regimen. Not only do Naturopathic Doctors recognize massage therapy to be an important part of health care, but Medical Doctors too have recognized the health benefits such as stress and pain relief and overall patient well-being.  This has resulted in a demand for Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) across the country.
