Why did you choose to become an RMT?  

I chose the massage therapy field because I have always liked science and anatomy, and I wanted to learn more about body mechanics and injury recovery.  

What do you like best about your job?  

I like working for myself, and that I can have a home practice, and all the aspects of running my own business.  

What advice would you give new RMTs?  

Take it slow, take care of yourself. Massage Therapy can be hard on the body, practice self care.  

Why did you choose to join MTAM?  

The professionalism that I saw when I dealt with the staff, and knowing that with regulation on the way, they are going to be the best equiped to guide me through that process.  

What’s your favourite MTAM member benefit?  

Knowing that I have a place to go to if I have any practice questions or issues. The staff at MTAM are knowledgeable and dedicated to providing useful feedback
