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 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 must submit a Criminal Record Check (CRC) with the Vulnerable Sector search.
Every member of our Association is bound to each other by a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice and are subject to discipline if any breach shall occur which threatens public harm. We take our competency and education and standards of practice very seriously.
