Looking for a skilled and passionate Registered Massage Therapist Locum

Posted: 12 June 2023

The FIX is a four-year-old thriving, multidisciplinary clinic and boutique training facility in Summerside, Prince Edward Island. The FIX provides chiropractic care, medical acupuncture, rehabilitation, and massage therapy to the Summerside and surrounding regions of Prince Edward Island. The interdisciplinary health care team at The FIX provides patient-centred, hands-on, evidence-informed treatment, through the highest quality, most thorough upstream approach to health.  

We are looking for a skilled and passionate Registered Massage Therapist locum eager to be part of a strong healthcare team and to enhance their lifestyle in a safe, friendly, active, and welcoming community. The locum position is full-time for six months, from August 1, 2023 (or before!) to December 20, 2023, with the possibility of an extension. 

 As a locum, you will take on a thriving practice from The FIX’s current RMT who is preparing for maternity leave. We are experiencing a significant increase in demand from our clients, and our RMT is booking three months in advance, with a lengthy wait list each day. Your schedule will be filled each day with a balance of new and current clients. Reception staff manage the assignment, direction, and flow of patients and clients to and from the private massage therapy room, the six private chiropractic treatment rooms, and the bright, spacious, fully equipped training and rehabilitation area. 

Prince Edward Island, on the east coast of Canada, is known around the world for its sandy beaches, rich culture, and diverse culinary offerings. The City of Summerside, ‘The City by the sea’ has all those things and more. It offers the attractions and liveliness of a modern city without the challenges of a large urban centre. Surrounded by natural beauty bathed in fresh ocean air, Summerside residents enjoy exciting recreational activities, high quality public services and a low cost of living. Inclusiveness, security, and safety are core values of life in Summerside. 

The FIX’s reputation lives up to our name; if people want their issue fixed for the long-term, this is where they come. Our RMT works closely with our chiropractors, collaborates on cases, with referrals moving both ways from one practitioner to another. We view the body as one integrated functioning unit, a true tensegrity model. We address complex issues by acquiring, processing, analyzing, and interpreting information to make informed judgments, decisions, and actions. We are ambitious in pursuing excellence and work and learn alongside colleagues with diverse professional and personal backgrounds and expertise. We know how to get to the root of our patients’ issue(s) to ensure long-lasting and rapid results. Education is a key component of healthcare, and we take the time to share information with each patient to allow them to gain a unique understanding of how their body works. 

Are You the Ideal Candidate to Join our Team? 

As an RMT at The Fix, you are proficient in your practice, have a growth mindset, and are unyielding in striving to provide the best care and service to your patients and clients. You have a curious mind, and a fascination with the human body and movement. You have a keen interest in rehabilitation, mobility and strength training, and your actions and lifestyle reflect your belief that movement is medicine. You employ a full range of evidence-based techniques into your clients and patients’ treatment plans. You view the body as an integrated functional unit and know how to get to the root of your patients’ issue(s) to ensure long-lasting and rapid results. You cooperate with other branches of medical science referring patients to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate. You collaborate with your 

colleagues at The Fix to provide patients with a truly integrative form of health care. If this sounds like you, we would love to invite you to join our dynamic team at our cheerful, upbeat, welcoming facility!
