National Standards of Practice

The Canadian Massage Therapist Alliance has developed this document to ensure consistent high standards of massage therapy practice across Canada. In provinces in which massage therapy is a regulated health profession, this is the function of the regulatory colleges who establish standards of practice which take precedence over this document.

In unregulated provinces, where appropriate, the standards of practice established by the appropriate provincial associations take precedence. This document provides an overall guide and standard for the profession of massage therapy across Canada.
