To address Ontario’s Personal Support Worker Shortage, the Ontario government is providing grants up to $13,235 to new students.
The Massage Therapy program at Medix College delivers training to those who are interested in a career as a Registered Massage Therapist.
Students in the Massage Therapy Diploma program are educated in regional anatomy, palpation, Massage Techniques, Anatomy and Physiology, Hydrotherapy, Neurophysiology, Pathology, and ethics. Courses will cover assessing clients by conducting range of motion and muscles tests, proposing treatment plans and administering massage techniques.
The Massage Therapy training program is approved by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities and upon successful completion, graduates are eligible to write their licensing exam. The licensing exams lead to registration with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO). Only those registered with CMTO may use the protected titles, “Massage Therapist” (MT) and “Registered Massage Therapist” (RMT).
Registered Massage Therapists in Ontario are regulated healthcare practitioners who can work in hospitals, private clinics, rehabilitation centres, spas and resorts, salons or run their own business.
The Massage Therapy program is also available in Brantford, Kitchener and London, at Westervelt College.
