About the RMTBC

The Registered Massage 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.

There are currently over 3,000 Registered Massage Therapists practicing in British Columbia.

The RMTBC is very proactive in continuing education to ensure members are constantly up to date on the cutting edge of research, clinical practice, science and techniques.

In recent years, the RMTBC has hosted several extremely successful conferences with attendees and speakers alike lauding the importance and relativity of these meetings.

This track record of delivering and going well beyond expectations includes the sold out 3rd International Fascial Research Congress hosted in 2012 and a Pain Management Conference in 2014.
