RMT

Massage Therapy is defined as “the assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain.” This is referred to as the Scope of Practice.

Massage Therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body, general health and overall well-being. Massage Therapy may be used to maintain and improve physical health and can also ease the effects of physical pain.

Other Questions

IS IT PAINFUL?

It’s not unusual to feel some soreness after a massage. This is due to a release of lactic acid in the muscles, but it doesn’t last long. You may also have some discomfort during your massage. This depends on the area we’re working on, any pre-existing pains, and whether the therapist is using too much pressure. You can always ask the therapist to use less pressure at any time if it’s too uncomfortable.

DO I NEED TO TAKE MY CLOTHES OFF?

No! All our therapists will ask you to remove clothing only as far as you feel comfortable. If you only want to undress to your underwear, that’s fine. The therapist will leave the room while you are undressing and will provide towels and blankets to cover you during the massage. There are some massages that work well if you want to remain clothed, so discuss this with us before you book.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I’M USING THE SERVICES OF AN RMT?

All Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) have photo ID cards, issued by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, showing the Therapist’s registration number.  All clients of massage therapy services have the right to view this ID card in order to be assured that you are visiting a Registered Massage Therapist.

IS AN RMT COVERED BY OHIP?

No. Massage therapy treatments are not covered under OHIP, regardless of whether or not the treatments are required by a physician. Most extended health benefit plans do cover massage therapy treatments when provided by a Registered Massage Therapist and most do not require a physician’s order to do so, although some do have that requirement. Contact your employer for more information.

WHAT IF I FALL ASLEEP ON THE TABLE?

It can be construed as an act of trust. When your client is so comfortable and trusting of you, they fall asleep on the table, this is considered a huge complimentthey have completely given themselves to their therapist. A client who talks during their entire massage session is not reaping the rewards of the complete healing process the therapist is attempting to provide.

“Acupuncture has been around for 4,000 years. I can’t see a treatment being around that long just ‘faking’ it. But it all deals with energy. That’s why it’s hard to explain why it works.”
EVAN MCCARTHY

“In a car you can go on and on with it but each time you travel with it, it will need to be tweaked. The oil may need a top off, the tires may need a straightening or the windows may need to be cleaned. That’s exactly what a chiropractic adjustment does. For your body to maintain its everyday use, you need to provide it with everyday adjustments.”

“Any misalignment the body has, has a root cause and a location. It is my job to locate and remove the root cause of the problem, getting rid of disease and getting better health instead.”

“I had found someone I really liked then my husband got a new job in a new city. So, up we went and changed homes and all in another, bigger city. I thought that I’d never find that same person until I found Wellness Withdrawal. I think that the one at your place is even better than the one I left! Go figure!!!”
