Massage Competency Standards

The Massage Therapy Competency Standards document amalgamates and updates all the educational documents developed by the College over the years into a single document and presents a broad-based set of competency standards for Massage Therapy practice in Ontario. This document, which outlines the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for competent Massage Therapy practice, has been developed as a tool to assist Massage Therapy schools in developing curriculum that continues to meet the changing demands of modern practice. It is also useful for new and practising Massage Therapists in developing personal development plans that allow them to meet and exceed evolving professional standards.
