Who We Are
What makes Natural Balance Massage Therapy Centre one of the top-rated practices in Ottawa is our quality of care and service. We have a great team of registered massage therapists who have between 5, 10 and even 20 years of experience in the industry. Most therapists have been with us for several years and fully embrace our values and vision.
All of our staff is registered with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO). This is especially important as you cannot be reimbursed by your insurance company if your therapist is not a member of the CMTO. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
