RMTs provide manual, hands-on treatment, assessment, and preventative care for a wide range of health conditions. Registrants with CMTBC have completed post-secondary education in clinical applications of health sciences in massage therapy settings, and must meet CMTBC’s rigorous entry-level requirements.

RMTs are subject to CMTBC’s Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, the requirements and regulations of the Health Professions Act, standards of professional conduct, and CMTBC’s quality assurance program. These standards ensure ongoing professional competence and development.

Like all regulated health professionals, RMTs must practice within their professional scope of practice. This means providing primarily manual, hands-on treatment and assessment in accordance with the definition of “massage therapy” within CMTBC’s regulations.
