Understanding Massage Therapy Services and Fees

The Registered Massage Therapists' Association of Ontario (RMTAO) has published this Guideline to assist individuals who receive services from a Registered Massage Therapist in understanding the fee structure and the legal and practice requirements with which massage therapists must comply.

Our hope is that a better informed profession and a better informed public will result in healthier, more productive relationships.
