Our ‘soon-to-be’ massage therapists provide a great alternative to a standard massage therapy visit.
About Intern Massage Therapy Services
Legacies Nordel, Southpoint, Market Crossing and North Vancouver locations have been offering the Internship program for soon-to-be Registered Massage Therapists (RMT’s). These carefully selected future RMT’s are graduates of the rigorous 2200hour British Columbia Registered Massage Therapy Program and will be offering Relaxation Massage Treatments while they wait to take their licensing exams to become fully registered RMT’s.

Your First Appointment
In your first appointment, similar to a registered massage therapy session, your intern therapist will do a comprehensive intake and ask you about your medical history related to the reason of your appointment. After better assessing you and your condition, your therapist will discuss your treatment plan and expected results.
Your intern therapist will continue to evaluate your condition and how you are feeling in every session. You should expect a portion of your visit to be used to review your treatment plan. At the end of the session, you will be reminded to book your follow-up appointments, when needed. You may do that with your clinician, call one of our locations, or book online.
