Massage Therapy Association of Manitoba

The Massage Therapy Association of Manitoba is an incorporated not-for-profit association of professional massage therapists established as an association in 1973 within the requirements of the Corporations Act of the Province of Manitoba.

The MTAM represents over 85% of the professional Massage Therapists who work in the province of Manitoba. It conducts its business from professionally staffed offices in Winnipeg and its geographic area of responsibility is within the boundaries of the province.

Highest Calibre Massage Therapists in the Province
The massage therapy industry is currently not regulated by the Manitoba government. For over 40 years, the MTAM has provided the massage therapy profession with a self-regulating body to ensure the highest standards of massage training and practice, and provide protection for the public. The MTAM has been working over the last several years in achieving provincial regulation.

Currently, in addition to acting as a regulator and competency educator for Registered Massage Therapists in Manitoba, our purpose is to promote the benefits of massage, provide the public with access to registered massage therapists, and to support professional massage therapists throughout Manitoba.

In Good Hands

In addition to the highest level of education and competency in the Province, all MTAM members are bound to each other by a Code of Ethics and follow the highest Standards of Practice. Members are subject to discipline if any breach shall occur which threatens public harm.

Our Association and our members believe in ongoing competency and education and in maintaining the highest standards of practice. You know you are in good hands with our members: view our list and find a Registered Massage Therapist near you.
