Our massage therapists are registered
At Port Hope Health Centre, all our massage therapists are registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. Consequently, all our registered massage therapists have to adhere to strict ethical guidelines and the highest standards of patient care.
What to expect at your first visit
After filling out a brief health intake form, your RMT will discuss with you which body areas will be targeted during treatment to help you achieve your health goals. Your RMT will also discuss with you various techniques that can be incorporated into your treatment depending on your health needs/goals. Such treatment techniques include: myofascial release, trigger point technique, sports massage, therapeutic massage, lymphatic drainage, deep tissue massage, or relaxation massage.
