F Why Choose a Registered Massage Therapist? | Lakeside Health | Salmon Arm, BC

Why Choose a Registered Massage Therapist?

Our therapists are Registered with the College of Massage Therapy of BC.  Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) have the highest standards in North America after completing a rigorous three-year training program.  All Registered Massage Therapists are required to participate in ongoing training and education to ensure their skill remain current and relevant.

At Lakeside Health, our RMTs belong to the Massage Therapists’ Association of British Columbia (MTABC).  The association negotiates with the Medical Services Plan, the Insurance Corporation of BC, the Workers’ Compensation Board, the BC Government and private insurers, gathers evidence through research projects and ongoing collection of massage therapy research articles.

Massage therapy is a vital part of health care in BC.
