Modern massage goes back to the 1700s in Sweden. Today, registered massage therapists—who are regulated health professionals—use a solid understanding of anatomy and physiology, combined with Swedish and more modern massage techniques, to help people with health challenges (including stress management).
WHO: REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPIST
WHAT: A registered massage therapist (RMT) promotes relaxation and wellbeing through hands-on techniques using friction and pressure. Massage can help prevent and treat pain in the soft tissues and joints by improving blood circulation and increasing mobility and range of motion.
WHO PAYS? Treatment by an RMT isn’t covered by OHIP. Check your employee benefits and accident benefits coverage.
YOUR ROLE: Follow through on your appointments and the treatment plan recommended by your massage therapist. Communicate openly and honestly with your practitioner, including pinpointing treatments that seem to be working well and those that don’t seem to make a difference or—even worse—appear to aggravate your condition.
