As a fully qualified massage therapist, your role is designed to provide health and wellbeing support to a wide range of clients, from office workers to marathon runners. 

Whether you are a student or a fully qualified massage therapist, you and/or your employees have regular direct exposure to clients. The service that your industry provides involves the manipulation of soft body tissue, with services including but not limited to:

  • Discussing and assessing clients medical history and requirements to identify how massage can support them, improving quality of life and wellbeing.
  • Massaging and manipulating soft body tissue to improve relaxation and general wellbeing. 
  • Create and develop massage treatment plans tailored to clients individual needs.
  • Prepare and blend massage oils and/or creams that are necessary for treatment.

In any profession, no matter how well prepared you are, accidents do happen. It is crucial for massage therapists to have appropriate insurance, to ensure that your business, your employees and your clients are protected.

What does massage therapist insurance cover?

Professional Beauty Direct, is an industry leader in the UK for massage therapist insurance, designed for qualified massage and holistic therapists who work either in their own treatment room in a house or a salon or on a self-employed, mobile basis. 

As standard, our massage therapist insurance includes public, product and treatment liability up to £6 million. 

  • Public Liability Insurance covers any injuries or accidents which may occur in your place of work whether that be your home, a client home or a clinic, such as a customer falling over your equipment. This also covers any damage which is caused to your client’s property during a visit to their home.
  • Product Liability Insurance covers any products which you sell to clients. If this product then causes any adverse reaction, as long as all terms and conditions of the insurance policy and the manufacturer guidelines of the product have been followed then the insurance policy will cover the claim.
  • Treatment Liability Insurance covers claims on any therapy treatment that you have provided to a client. For example, if a client is injured as a result of a treatment that you provide.

Optional add ons to our insurance includes:

  • Kit and equipment cover, we understand how much professional equipment costs, so we offer damage and theft cover for these if requested. 
  • Teacher training insurance, if you wish to train up the new generation of massage therapists then this add on is well suited to you, providing extra assurance for your business.
