Our mission statement: “We exist to encourage and enhance the art, science and practice of massage therapy by maintaining a high standard of massage therapy; by establishing and maintaining the Massage Therapist Association of Saskatchewan, Inc. as a leading health professional association; by promoting the health profession through education, accountability, communication and advocacy, and financial stability.”
Members of MTAS have an obligation to obtain competency credits to provide the public with up to date treatment techniques. For the public’s safety, members follow a detailed code of ethics standard of practice and strict confidentiality policy.
Members of MTAS are the only massage therapists in Saskatchewan who are legally permitted to use the designations RMT and Registered Massage Therapist. MTAS members are recognized across the country as professional practioners, and are members of the Massage Therapy Alliance of Canada (MTAC).
MTAS undertakes many activities on behalf of our membership - directed toward Government agencies, other health professionals, and the general public, intended to increase the awareness of Registered Massage Therapists.
