FAQ

Q: Why do Massage Therapists charge HST

A: Under the federal Excise Tax Act, massage therapy is a service to which GST was applied. While massage therapists are considered health care practitioners under Ontario Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, massage therapy is not included in the definition of health services that are exempt from the application of the HST. The list of exemptions is controlled by the federal government and the federal Minister of Finance has made it clear that the current policies governing exemptions will remain in place. A health profession can be exempted if is it regulated in five provinces or territories or if it is paid for in the health plans of three provinces. Massage therapy does not meet either of these conditions

Q: Do I have to remove all my clothing for massage therapy?

A: NO. Your comfort as a client is of the utmost to all Registered Massage Therapists, whether that is in the context of the clothing you wear or the treatment you receive. Massage Therapists can provide important treatment whether you elect to remove any, some, or all of your clothing.All RMTs are trained in proper draping procedures to ensure that your privacy is completely respected at all times during treatment. Your comfort and ability to relax is paramount to effective treatment. Registered Massage Therapists will also describe the treatments to be provided to ensure that you are comfortable with them. Your consent is sought before treatment is provided. If you are uncomfortable, your RMT wants you to let them know immediately, whether that discomfort involves the treatment, draping or any pain you may experience. Be sure and discuss the most effective means of treatment with your Massage Therapist.

Q: How long is a massage session?

A: The Golden rule with massage therapy treatments is: “Find the cause treat the cause.” In order to find out what could be the cause for your pain or discomfort, I suggest you should reserve one hour for the first session. The following sessions depend on the nature and stage of the condition to be treated. Treatments vary from 10 minutes to 90 minutes for one session.

Q: In what way can I benefit from getting regular massages?

A: There are tremendous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments from a registered massage therapist. Whether you need to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall sense of emotional and physical well-being as well as your quality of life.
