Welcome to our MTWPAM internet home. We invite you to peruse our site as a portal of information on who we are and what we do. We are proud to showcase the wide variety of therapeutic practices, along with highly educated and leading edge therapists.


The Massage Therapists’ and Wholistic Practitioners’ Association of the Maritimes is the only Nova Scotia Wholistic based professional association for the support and promotion of natural, alternative and complementary health care in Nova Scotia.

MTWPAM is also the only not-for-profit based professional Association supporting Massage Therapy which is entirely run by and for it’s members.

Our focus is the duality of efficacy and support of our members and the promotion of the highest standards and regulations of our supported professions which assists us in the goal of protection of the public.

As a self-governing Nova Scotia Government recognized body, MTWPAM advocates for the key components in our move towards the future recognition of government supported regulation for Massage Therapy.  

MTWPAM Massage Therapists are recognized for paper claims by most major extended health care insurance companies and offer direct billing through Medavie Blue Cross, Green Shield, Johnson, Great West Life, Chamber of Commerce, Desjardins, Standard Life, Industrial Alliance and Maximum Benefit. Manulife and Sunlife are now set up to offer direct billing.
