Oct. 26, Edmonton, Alta. – The Canadian Sport Massage Therapy Association (CSMTA) annual conference, held in Edmonton, Alta., from Oct. 22-24, was defined by topics that extended beyond the walls of the massage therapy clinic to redefine the RMT’s role in the broader spectrum of the health-care system.

Although the themes covered by the event’s informative and experienced speakers encompassed a variety of techniques through didactic and hands-on workshops, the broader message had more to do with the far-reaching potential that massage therapy can have in the lives and careers of a variety of athletes, as well as in the well-being and health care of the general public.

The CSMTA 2010 Conference Banquet, held on the Saturday night, featured well-known, award-winning athletes from a wide range of sports disciplines, all of whom spoke of the benefits they had gleaned from working with a massage therapist throughout their careers.

The organizing committee for the event, headed by Kip Petch, more than succeeded in their endeavour to provide attendees an interdisciplinary, well-rounded learning experience – they also furnished an opportunity for RMTs to network with colleagues while attaining practical skills for use in their clinics.

CSMTA would like to thank all its sponsors for helping to make the event a success. Next year’s conference, to be held in Ontario, is already being planned– more details will be provided in the months to come.
