RM vs RMT
I have seen an increasing number of health professionals in Ontario using RM after their names. This does not seem right.
RM stands for relaxation massage. It is not a title and should not be used after your name! RMT stands for Registered Massage Therapist which is a title and can be used after your name.
In Ontario, massage is not a regulated health profession. Massage therapy on the other hand is regulated. There is nothing wrong with masseurs using relaxation massage however they should not use RM after their names as it is not a title and it seems misleading as people may mistake it with RMT.
