Massage therapists association sees spike in injury complaints, calls for stronger regulations Currently no restriction in Manitoba on who can call themselves a 'massage therapist' Riley Laychuk · CBC News · Posted: Jul 09, 2018 5:00 AM CT | Last Updated: 24 minutes ago


Crime-Based Headlines 

The MTAM keeps up-to-date on all court cases, incidents, and situations related to massage, massage parlours, body workers, and to cases that involve professional massage therapy health care practitioners in Manitoba.

When cases are being investigated or are in the court system, we will not comment specifically to respect the integrity of that case or investigation. The MTAM believes it is inappropriate to comment publicly on cases sub judice. Publicly discussing cases sub judice may constitute interference with the legal process.


National Connections

We continue to work with our colleagues across Canada and will use this space to update on things of importance to RMT's across the country. Currently, the Canadian Massage Therapy Alliance represents over 15,000 Massage Therapists across Canada.

We are all stronger, when we work together. We are proud of the relationships and partnerships we have with other Massage Therapy Association's across Canada and are a proud member of the Canadian Massage Therapist Alliance.

Accreditation of Schools across Canada

MTAM Supports the Canadian Massage Therapy Council for Accreditation

The purpose of the accreditation process is to provide a mechanism for quality assurance and continuing quality improvement of entry-level massage therapy education programs across Canada. Accreditation will foster a common national entry-level education standard that is based upon the entry-to-practice requirements in the regulated provinces, and in doing so will facilitate the initiation of regulation in provinces that are currently unregulated. Accreditation will support the advancement of massage therapy as a health care profession, thereby serving the public interest.
