RMT is a professional designation used by a graduated Massage Therapist who has completed at least two years of education at a recognized school of massage therapy, and who is a registered member of College of Massage Therapists of Ontario(CMTO).
Many extended health insurance plans (ie. Group Insurance Plan and Student Benefits) cover massage therapy treatments when provided by a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). They often do not require a physician's order for treatments, although some may still have this requirement. Massage Therapy may also be covered by insurance companies when treating injuries resulting from a motor vehicle accident (MVA), or from a workplace injury through the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), or through Veterans Affairs.
