CMTO is excited to present a refreshed Code of Ethics. The Code of Ethics and accompanying Glossary of Terms are resources to support Massage Therapists (“MTs” or “RMTs”) in understanding and applying the ethical principles and values which are foundational to the practice of the profession. As regulated health professionals, RMTs must ensure they maintain the public’s confidence in the profession and provide the highest level of safe, ethical and quality Massage Therapy care. This is accomplished by exercising professional judgement and integrity.
CMTO’s Code of Ethics is grounded in four ethical principles:
- Benefit Clients and Serve Their Best Interests
- Treat all Clients with Respect and Dignity
- Not Harm Clients
- Be Responsible and Accountable
We would like to thank all RMTs who provided feedback at any stage of the process; the development of the Code of Ethics was a partnership between RMTs and CMTO. CMTO looks forward to continuing to work with RMTs to ensure the public receives the safe, ethical and quality Massage Therapy care.
