Here is a brief overview of the program:

  • At the term’s beginning, participants choose a specific time and day per week, and commit to the 15-week term
  • Up to seven people go at a time, in a common room with tables separated by curtains
  • Class size each term determines the number of participants. This can be as low as 42 and as high as 96.
  • Besides the many benefits of massage, a mini support group usually develops. Some have found their fear of becoming less mobile lessens when they see those who use various aids – canes, walkers, wheelchairs and scooters – living successfully. Others simply enjoy the social aspect.

The RMT Program public clinic gives students the opportunity to hone their skills and build their confidence as they progress through the 2 year program. As participants in these clinics, you will receive assessment and treatment from a student in a supervised, learning environment. Treatments are booked for one hour, a portion of which will be dedicated to history taking, assessment and homecare suggestions. For those clients who have MS, we suggest you request a student in the 2nd year of the program. This will ensure they have completed the learning required to best meet your treatment goals.
