About the Symposium

The RMTBC is pleased to present a two-day symposium and lecture dedicated to ground-breaking, science-backed research on the benefits of massage therapy to our rapidly aging population. Internationally renowned speakers will stimulate a dialogue between colleagues to:

·       promote the exchange of experiences and new ideas

·       start and continue a network around scientific and evidence-based practice

·       make an inventory of the possibilities for massage therapy in aging and pain science treatment

all aimed at sustaining and stimulating independence and wellness in seniors. 

Participants and speakers are expected to spend all day at the venue with breakfast, coffee breaks and lunch and social reception all taking place in the exhibition area. 


We are expecting 400 participants with a diverse audience of healthcare professionals mainly from the manual disciplines. Presentations will address the science and practice of keeping the aging population healthy and active with emphasis on evidence-based approaches. Sound science will underpin theoretical constructs. Participants are expecting to increase their understanding of various clinical approaches by learning of the most recent developments in the field.
