Registered Massage Therapists

RMT is a professional designation used by a graduated Massage Therapist who has completed at least two years of education at a recognized school of massage therapy, and who is a registered member of a Regulatory College - or in some cases - an association of Massage Therapists, such as the case with the MTAM.

This insignia is your assurance you are dealing with the highest calibre Massage Therapist.

Highest Standards

The massage therapy industry is currently not regulated by the Manitoba government. For over 40 years, the MTAM has provided the massage therapy profession with a self-regulating body to ensure the highest standards of massage training and practice, and provide protection for the public.
Is your Massage Therapist Registered?
The term Registered Massage Therapist is normally found in use by practicing professionals in legislated provinces (Ontario, British Columbia, New Brunswick, & Newfoundland & Labrador) who are permitted by their Regulatory Colleges within the parameters of a "Massage Therapy Act" to use the designation.
In Canada, there are approximately 22,000 professional massage therapists of whom over 60% are legislated and permitted by law to use the professional designation of RMT. In addition, the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario has protected the following nine marks as "official marks" under the provisions of Section 9 of the Trademarks Act of Canada.
  • Massage Therapist
  • Registered Massage Therapist
  • Massage Therapy
  • Therapeutic Massage
  • Massothérapeute
  • Massage Thérapeutique
  • Massothérapie
  • R.M.T
  • M.T.


Members of the MTAM have used this designation in Manitoba for many years with the approval of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) with the understanding that the standards practiced by MTAM members were similar to the Ontario experience.
