The Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) has been largely excluded inmultidisciplinary rehabilitation services, whether clinic-based orhome/community/work-based. Perhaps the most significant barrier has been themisperception that massage therapy is a "passive" modality. However, the absenceof the RMT on the multidisciplinary team leaves out an important rehabilitation service. Dr. Buch surveys much of the recent literature and developments in chronicpain management, and articulates the role for massage therapy.
