RMT COVID-19 Pandemic Clinical Guidelines

Current as of September 15th, 2020

Please take a minute to read through our new guidelines for Massage Therapy Treatment.

Supporting a relaxing environment and one of optimal health and safety is our goal.

Due to the unique nature of massage therapy treatment, we protect and care for each other by honoring the following:

RMT COVID-19 Pandemic Clinical Guidelines as outlined by British Columbia Public Health, Work Safe BC, the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia CMTBC & Registered Massage Therapist's Association of British Columbia RMTBC.

Please be aware that practice will look and feel different.

• RMTs and massage clients must both wear cloth, surgical, N95 or P-100 masks at all times. This practice will be required both in the waiting room and during treatment, without exemption.

• The following screening questions will be asked both 24 hours before and at treatment.

  1. Are you experiencing any of the following: a fever, a new cough, a worsening chronic cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?
  2. Have you had close contact with anyone with acute respiratory illness (other than a frontline HCW who meets the BC CDC Assessment as no risk) or have you travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days?

• Short notice schedule changes due to illness or suspected illness will be accepted and cancelled or rebooked free of penalty.

• If you are feeling or showing signs of ANY illness, even a suspected simple cold or sore throat, we will not be permitted to treat you that day. We will be happy to help you rebook for another time.

Testimonials



Robyn was referred to me by a neighbour and when I saw she was close by, I was excited to book with her. After my initial appointment, I felt great! Robyn listened when I told her my trouble areas and unlike other places I’ve visited, she targeted the areas bugging me instead of doing what the RMT wanted. All the stress and tension in my back was relaxed after the first visit! I already had three follow ups booked and always look forward to working on my goals with her to help release stress and tension in my back from carrying my little baby around.

A big thank you to Robyn.

- Nicole Wilson


Robyn has been my most trusted massage therapist at multiple times in my life, and has helped me through a variety of different problems: repetitive stress injury, poor posture, bad mattresses, strain from using a chest binder, and recovery in the year following childbirth. She has an intuitive understanding of the body that's matched by her expansive knowledge base and professionalism, and is always working to learn more, for the benefit of both herself and her clients. I can't recommend her highly enough.

- Eran


Robyn is an amazing healer.

She is very knowledgeable and has many different techniques that she can utilize depending on your issue. I personally love that she explains what treatments she is going to perform on you and how it will benefit in the healing of your body or problem. Robyn also goes above and beyond to show some at home stretch's or different sitting standing positions etc. that are going to help the client as well. She is very intuitive and can often pinpoint what is bothering you before you even get the opportunity to tell her. She asks you good questions to really understand what you are doing and what kind of treatment you need. I always come away feeling 200% better and look forward my next massage with her!

- Deanna Nichols


I've been a client of Robyn's since 2005, for repetitive strain injuries in my arms, ongoing upper back and neck tension, whiplash, and regular sports maintenance.

Robyn creates a warm and inviting environment, explaining how aches and pains likely came to be and giving simple exercises to help between treatments.

Having been with her for so many years, there's simply no one else who can match her ability to understand what's going on with my body. I can't recommend her highly enough!

- Jacinthe


Based on verbal descriptions of pain, Robyn was able to figure out the buried muscle group causing the issue and then use deep tissue muscle massage to work on it. She assisted with the underlying problem instead of the superficial cause.

- Nsé


I have gone to Robyn for a range of body pain related ailments. She has a wide breadth of knowledge which has been helpful when looking at treating specific areas of concerns while relating it back to my broader sense of health.

She asks questions that make me feel like she has an invested interest in us both getting the most out of our sessions. I trust her and her ability to assess what treatments are in my best interest.

- Triane


Robyn comes highly recommended, and I consider her an integral part of my health care. Robyn’s deep knowledge of the body-mind connection, her keen and ongoing interest in pain therapy, plus her intuition – make her the quintessential healer – and therapist.

- Nila Gopaul
