She has been practicing many years of experience in Acupuncture. Recently she got a new license as a Registered Massage Therapist. She is registered in CMTBC1.

She has a passion for massage, Tui-na, and Acupressure before so she decided to add a new title. She understands different conditions well, so you can get the best massage therapy based on her knowledgeable diagnosis. 

What is an RMT?

CMTBC1 stated2,

A registered massage therapist (RMT) in British Columbia is a health professional regulated by CMTBC under BC’s Health Professions Act.

Applicants for registration 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 of the Health Professions Act and regulations made under the Act.
  • Standards of professional conduct.
  • CMTBC’s quality assurance program, which ensures ongoing professional currency and development.

Like all regulated health professionals, RMTs must practice within their professional scope of practice. For RMTs, this means providing primarily manual, hands-on treatment and assessment in accordance with the definition of “massage therapy” in the Massage Therapists Regulation. Many modalities and treatments that may be considered acceptable in other jurisdictions are outside the scope of practice of massage therapy in British Columbia. CMTBC has posted specific guidance on yoga instruction and on using terms such as “specialize in” or “advanced” to describe one’s practice.
