An Indian head massage is a relaxing holistic treatment that has been practised in India for more than a thousand years and is designed to rebalance the body’s energies. 


As a fully qualified Indian head masseuse, you’ll be more than familiar with the practice of using acupressure massage on the head, face, neck and shoulders, focusing on the three “chakras” - mind, body and spirit. Some of the benefits that come from Indian head massage are:

  • Promotes serenity and relaxation
  • Helps to relieve pain, ache and tension
  • Helps to reduce stress and in turn, improves sleep quality
  • Stimulates lymphatic drainage by circulating blood, lymph and oxygen
  • Helps to clear sinuses
  • Can improve eye strain
  • Helps to relieve anxiety
  • Can help with headaches and migraines by reducing tensions in the head and neck


However, there are also risks associated with Indian head massage to be aware of, including:

  • Persistent migraines
  • Severe muscle pain
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue and drowsiness


These are all indicators that your client may have had an adverse reaction to the treatment. As a result, you’ll want to ensure your business is protected with the right insurance in case a client was to make a claim against you. 


Indian head massage may not be suitable for everyone, for example, if your client has recently had head, neck or back surgery or if they have a history of thrombosis, embolism or spondylitis they will be unsuitable for treatment.  Accordingly, it is important, as, with any type of massage treatment, you undertake a full consultation with the client to check for contraindications.  Also, remember to complete and retain a record card as evidence of this to make sure you do not breach any conditions of your insurance coverage.



What Does Our Indian Head Massage Insurance Include?


We recognise the importance of protecting your business; you’ve worked tirelessly to build a good reputation and a portfolio of clients.  In the unfortunate event, a compensation claim was to arise, you’ll need sufficient insurance cover in place to protect you when you need it most.


Our insurance for masseuses who specialise in Indian Head Massage includes £6m public liability, product liability and treatment liability cover.



Public liability cover is responsible for protecting you if a client suffers from non-treatment related injuries whilst in your care. This could be accidentally tripping at your premises or if you spill essential oils on their carpet for instance.



Product liability cover is designed to offer cover if a client experiences an allergic reaction or illness as a result of products sold or supplied by you in relation to the treatment.



Treatment liability cover is responsible for protecting you in the event a client suffers from an injury or illness that is directly related to the result of your Indian head massage.  


 What other insurance cover do we offer?


As a specialist insurance provider for beauty, hair and nail treatments we help salon owners, self-employed individuals and students do what they love without the worries of a compensation claim damaging their business. We protect a wide range of treatments including:
