Typically, Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) are licensed by a provincial governing body and receive up to 3,000 hours of education in orthopaedic and physiologic health sciences. After a rigorous training program, including hands-on learning in the classroom and the completion of a provincial registration exam, RMTs are ready to take on their first clients and practice massage therapy.
