Deep Muscle Therapy Course
What is DMT? DMT is the systemic kneading, stroking and pressure point therapy applied over the entire body. DMT deals with nerves, muscles, bones, blood and the lymphatic system. Deep Muscle Therapists are taught to work the underlying deep muscles that are attached to the bone. To give a DMT is one of the most beautiful experiences you can give. It is an endless exploration of another body and creates a magnificent journey into your own physical world. Treatments usually take 1 to 1 ½ hours to do.

Certificate Vs Diploma
Diplomas are generally granted after completing classes and hands on experience in a specific field. The course of study is usually longer than that involved in obtaining a certificate.
Certificates are usually granted to individuals who have participated in a shorter, more intensive course of study associated with career competency in a particular skill set.
Will I need to register with a governing board and pay membership fees?
No. we are teaching you a skill. DMT is a non-regulated therapy. You may be confusing the designation of
RMT with the Therapy type.
RMT (Register Massage Therapy) Vs. DMT (Deep Muscle Therapy)
RMT is a designation as opposed to a type of massage technique. It indicates an individual has registered with the College of Massage Therapists in their provinces (currently Ontario, British Columbia, newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island). These colleges set out professional standard and quality of care guidelines that they hold RMTs accountable to through a complaints and discipline process if their services do not meet the standards of practice. Thus a person can be an RMT but practice DMT but not all DMTs are RMTs
