Massage Therapy Association of Manitoba

About the MTAM

The Massage Therapy Association of Manitoba (MTAM) is an incorporated not-for-profit association of professional massage therapists in Manitoba. Established in 1973, we have been serving the profession for almost 45 years.


To promote and enhance the art, science and philosophy of massage therapy in a professional and ethical manner to ensure the highest level of competency based practice for massage therapy within the province of Manitoba.

Our purpose is to
1. Protect the public by ensuring safe, competent and ethical massage practice;
2. Represent members before government and regulatory bodies concerned with massage therapy;
3. Foster and encourage professional growth among members;
4. Ensure high standards of education for students of massage therapy;
5. Promote the art, philosophy and science of massage therapy; and
6. Serve our members with care and compassion.

Our Quest for Regulation is Now the Road to Regulation
The massage therapy industry will be regulated by the Manitoba government in the coming years. Read more on our Road to Regulation.
As the largest Association dedicated to Massage Therapists in this province, the MTAM has played an important role in advancing the profession. We have done our best to balance our focus on helping our members and protecting the public; acting in a similar manner as a regulatory body. We are looking forward a Regulatory body being in place so the MTAM can focus wholly on the business of being an Association on behalf of our members.
