Why I Want To Learn Homeopathy As An RMT

By: Jayme H., Mount Forest

There have always been differences of opinion in my family about health care.  My sister is a Nurse Practitioner and I am a Registered Massage Therapist.  Our views are very different and that definitely makes for interesting discussions around the dinner table.  I have always had a place in my heart for the natural type of healing. 

In 2005 I got my acceptance in the Massage Therapy Program at Sir Sanford Fleming College in Peterborough. While I loved the program, I was very unhappy being so far away from my family.  I started looking into a transfer and did so to Georgian College in Barrie.  It was perfect for me.  I loved Barrie.  I completed the Georgian Program and could not have been more proud of myself.   That fall, I had to take my CMTO (College of Massage Therapists of Ontario) registration exams.  I took my first attempt in early November.  I have always been a nervous test taker, and I find that I have a hard time relaying the information sometimes needed in a stressful situation.  I did not pass my exam.  I was lucky enough to get on a waitlist and was able to take it one more time that year.  I failed my exam again.  It was a huge ego blow for me.  I always knew I was a good massage therapist and I knew what I was doing. It frustrated me that I was in this situation. I had to wait until the spring to take my exam for the final time; I did, and failed it for the third time.  This was a really rough part of my life.  I felt like I had failed my family, and most of all failed myself.  At that time, I toyed with the idea of heading to Australia with a friend. There my college diploma would mean something and I would be able to do what I wanted to do.  My other option was to attend Centennial College and obtain a Massage Therapy Refresher Diploma.  This is what I decided to do.  I would have no idea that it would turn me into an even better massage therapist.  I was trained by some of the best and truly believe that it made me better.  I completed the program in December and was eligible to write my registration exams again in the spring. In May I decided that I was ready to write my MCQ portion and passed successfully.  That was the first time in 2 years that I felt that I may get to be an RMT.  Later that month I took my OSCE portion, 2 weeks later I received the email that changed my life.  After all my hard work and determination I was FINALLY eligible to register with the CMTO.  It truly was one of the best days of my life. 

After being in my profession for 3 years, I have learned a few things.   I absolutely am in love with my job and my patients.  It makes me so happy to be able to help people.  But I also understand that my profession is very taxing on your body physically and emotionally.  I know that I am not going to be able to do this job when I am 50.  I began exploring other options of health care and looked at modalities such as; osteopathy, naturopathic and homeopathic.  The one that I kept going back to was always homeopathic health care.  I just feel that my Massage background and homeopathic care fit so well together.   It will be a great asset to be able to look at the bigger picture to help my existing patients and new patients. 

I am a strong believer that one thing triggering a symptom has other involvements that can contribute. For example, about 80% of my current patients suffer from migraines and headaches.  I can only do so much within my scope to help them decrease the headaches.  Fixes such as massage and specific work to certain muscles in the neck and shoulders can help decrease tension, and educating them on things like decreasing coffee consumption and increasing water intake normally prove to be good aids in decreasing frequency of headaches.  It would be great to have another modality that I can rely on and use to help those patients. It will also be great to have the knowledge and understanding to determine why those headaches are re-occurring.  

In conclusion I am essentially looking for another modality to help my patients have better outcomes, feel better overall and get to the roots causing their issues.  I also think that this is a good fit for me.  I am a determined young woman and when I set my mind to something I really try and try to ensure that I achieve it.
