The Registered Massages Therapists’ Association of BC is the professional body representing the Registered Massage Therapists (RMT) of British Columbia. When RMTs join their professional association they are demonstrating their belief and support in an association that will advance their profession. RMTs receive support, assistance and services that all contribute to a strong professional presence and profile within the health care community.

A strong professional association contributes to the profession by educating the public, government, insurers and other health professions as to the important role of massage therapy in health care and wellness for British Columbians. The association does this by:
