  Massage has been found to improve circulation, joint range-of-motion and flexibility. It can reduce many common ailments such as stress, neck and lower back pain, muscle tightness, aches and pains - even anxiety and depression.

  In British Columbia, over 75 percent of medical physicians regularly refer their patients to a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) - and they make these referrals because massage therapy is both accessible and effective in the treatment of their patients' conditions. Today, RMTs use a blend of modern science and ancient philosophies, utilizing specific techniques and modalities.Over the past decade, there has been a significant rise in the demand for massage therapy in BC. This can be attributed to higher educational standards, research studies showing the efficacy of massage therapy, and an overall increase in public demand for non-surgical and drug-free treatment options.RMTs work with illness, injury and disability in diverse and broad patient populations. They are primary health care professionals that focus on disorders of the muscoloskeletal and related systems.Treatment and management of many health conditions by massage therapists is supported by research.Below is a list of some conditions RMTs treat and assist with:
