Ted Ghertsos

Treasurer

Bio: I completed my 2200 hour massage therapy program in Windsor, ON 2012. I then moved to Alberta and joined the RMTA as a member that same year. I hold a shiatsu certification as well as a hot stone massage therapy certification. I have practiced at well-established clinics and high end luxury spas over the past 5 years throughout Calgary and as far as Grande Prairie, AB. I have always been passionate about being in the health care profession and using my skills to help in recovery and well-being of clients. I believe our industry will only continue to grow over the coming years and I am happy to be part of a profession that is always changing in light of new research and information. I hope to learn much from our previous treasurer and bring the Remedial Massage Therapists Association and members to new heights as we push on toward full regulation in the province of Alberta. My desire is to bring my knowledge of coming from a regulated province for RMT’s in Ontario and applying this insight to help with this process in Alberta. I feel honored and privileged to be a part of this wonderful team and am excited for the transitions to come.
