Similar to the SDPS, MTC primary focus is on bridging the gap between science and research with practice and patient care.
“The Registered Massage Therapy Association of British Colombia (RMTBC) has mandate to advance knowledge and understanding of massage therapy. It is through research and evidence informed practice that the profession and practice of massage therapy is advanced, enhancing the profession’s and the public’s understanding of massage therapy and its therapeutic value," Bodhi Haraldsson described in an online interview with Massage & Fitness Magazine, who is the director of research of RMTBC and co-organization of the upcoming conference. “With this in mind the association has previously run three research conferences. MTC 2016 is our fourth.”
