Why a Registered Massage Therapist?

Greetings from the solarium at Sunrise Wellness Spa!

I love to sit in the hammock and relax and reflect…

Today I would like to elaborate on the importance of going to a registered massage therapist (RMT).

An RMT has completed two years of massage therapy school and has passed the Board Exams of the Massage Therapy Association of Saskatchewan (MTAS).

The Provinces have worked hard to develop a high standard of massage education nationally. They have worked diligently with Insurance Companies and WCB and SGI to comply with the highest standard of massage education in Canada.

The Board exams are another safe guard of quality treatment you will receive.

When a therapist has passed the written and practical Board exam, the therapist then receives

designation of RMT and you as a client will then be able to be reimbursed by the many insurance  companies that cover massage therapy as well as WCB and SGI.

To maintain the designation of RMT the therapist must earn 40 credits through continuing education over a   window of 3 years. MTAS has approved many courses that one can choose from to upgrade and accumulate more tool for their tool kit, thus having a wide choice of methods to choose from when doing a massage treatment.

The Associations have worked with insurance companies and Blue Cross to assure them that the clients are receiving professional quality treatment for their accident injury and or health issues.

MTAS members must carry liability insurance as well..

I am passionate about continuing education and have traveled far and wide to take many courses that I was attracted to. It is so exciting and rewarding to gain such a diverse knowledge in this industry in order to give you the most effective treatment that most insurance companies will reimburse you for.

Gift Cards cannot be reimbursed through any insurance company or Blue Cross.

Check the designation of your massage therapist. Ask to see their certificate from MTAS.

Buyers Be Smart!

Thank you for reading!
