Massage Therapy

Cleveland Clinic Canada’s massage therapy service is provided by experienced registered massage therapists (RMT) and is designed to help you feel your best so you can perform at your best.

Research shows that massage therapy can reduce pain, decrease stress and enhance immune function by providing relief to the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. At Cleveland Clinic Canada, we offer a variety of massage techniques that can be used to address and treat disorders of the body, promote healing, and reach higher levels of health and wellness.

What is a registered massage therapist?

A registered massage therapist has obtained a degree from a recognized institution in Canada and has completed 2200 hours of training. Once their education is complete, a registered massage therapist must pass a standardized registration test and maintain their registration by taking part in continuing education and a Quality Assurance Program. Only members of the College of Registered Massage Therapists of Ontario are permitted to use the title Massage Therapist or Registered Massage Therapist or the designation of RMT or MT.
