Massage Therapists are struggling through an unprecedented event in their lifetime – a pandemic. This pandemic necessitates physical distancing and suspension of practice to slow the spread of the virus. As COVID19 cases decline, provincial governments are slowly re-opening the economy. Massage therapists have many questions as how to return to practice effectively and safely.
In episode 10 of On The Table, we speak with Lori Green, Executive Director of the Massage Therapist Association of Saskatchewan (MTAS) about their return to work resources, PPE requirements (and associated costs), workplace alterations, how the Canadian Massage Therapist Alliance (CMTA) are coordinating their efforts for RMTs across the country, and more!
