Will my health insurance cover the treatments?

Registered Massage Therapy is not covered by OHIP, however, it is covered through most work place or private health insurance plan. Consult your policy for details. (Our massage therapists Ania and Robert provide insurance receipts, Laurent does not)

Training
Registered Massage Therapists are required to complete a minimum of 2200 hours of training. Upon completion of the program, the student must pass an Entrance to Practice examination set by the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario.
