Does the Ontario College of Physicians approve or disapprove of massage therapy?

0

Since the Regulated Health Profession Act was approved in 1994, the OCP kind of has to approve of massage therapy since it’s regulated. They definitely don’t disapprove of it since many insurance companies require physicians referrals in order to cover massage therapy treatments. Physicians in Ontario also don’t seem to have a problem issuing referrals for massage therapy as they see it as an important part of healing. It also often goes hand in hand with physiotherapy after a severe injury. You could try contacting the CMTO which is the regulating body of massage therapists in Ontario, and ask them if they could provide you with more information about agreements or governing acts that show the OCP’s approval of massage therapy in Ontario. Good luck!
