The RMT Education Project

In the past it has been difficult to stay up to date with the latest research. The RMT Education Project serves as a starting point in the development of a body of knowledge that massage therapists can use to guide an evidence based practice. The RMT Education Project attempts to 'simplify the complex' by breaking down information dense research into manageable chunks.
