Massage Therapy is effective in controlling chronic and acute pain, reducing stress, and creating a sense of relaxation and well being. It is proven to provide relief for a variety of problems, including lower back pain, tendonitis, sprains, strains, carpal tunnel syndrome, jaw pain, migraine, muscle tension headaches, whiplash, and neck and shoulder tension.
At Healing Touch Massage Therapy, dedication, professionalism and compassionate care are of the utmost importance.

The Registered Massage Therapists Association of Ontario (RMTAO) office often receives questions regarding what is included in a massage therapy session. Both practitioners and patients have indicated confusion about what portions of the massage therapy process are included in paid time.
All RMTs are expected to follow Standards of Practice provided by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. These include intake/interview, initial assessment or re-assessment, treatment, self-care recommendations, charting and administration. All of these activities will vary depending on the needs, complexity and conditions of the individual patient. It is important for patients to understand that all of these activities are part of a massage therapy session and are required as part of the Standards of Practice for the profession.
