We start with the Best

At Muscle Matters, we select our therapists carefully. We believe an exceptional therapist will have the greatest impact on the quality of your experience.

All of our therapists are registered with a professional massage therapy association in the Province of Alberta, and are licensed by the City of Edmonton.

While it is common to become a registered massage therapist in Alberta with as little as 200 hours of training (roughly a six week course), we require a two year diploma (2200 hours of training) in our therapists’ educations. It takes considerable time to become skilled with the proper techniques and treatments we employ at Muscle Matters.

We personally ensure that all of our therapists are able to deliver the exceptional treatment that Muscle Matters is known for. Our massage therapists deliver an outstanding massage and always conduct themselves in a professional and personable manner.
