Professional Beauty Direct are leading providers of Swedish massage insurance policies, with £6 million as standard cover for treatment, public and product liabilities. Through our innovative quote and buy system, you can benefit from instant protection, with the option to extend your standard massage insurance package to provide cover for property/equipment and teacher training (subject to requirements) for an additional fee. 


As a talented Swedish masseur, you devote your time to providing a service that helps your clients unwind through a variety of soothing and relaxing massage techniques. In addition to creating a calming environment for customers, Swedish massage contains a plethora of health benefits, which include easing physical and emotional stress, improving circulation as well as muscular strain. 


While there are hundreds of options available in the massage industry, clients turn to Swedish massage as a less strenuous alternative to deep tissue massage, which is a preferred service to help with chronic muscle tension or other similar issues. Swedish techniques use a series of long, gliding strokes which can stimulate the skin as well as the nervous system. When such techniques are used in conjunction with essential oils, clients can also greatly benefit from aromatherapy. 


We at Professional Beauty Direct know that you are great at what you do and that you conduct your practice with true passion and ultimate dedication. However careful you may be, accidents still remain possible and the occurrences of such incidents may result in compensation claims made against your business.


Our insurance policy helps protect you in the event an injury is caused to a customer, whether you may have inadvertently aggravated an existing muscle injury or an accident occurred on your work premises such as the massage couch collapsing or the customer trips on a step entering your premises. Although we hope that you never have to make a claim against your Swedish massage insurance policy, we believe that having the right insurance policy in place can ensure that your source of income is not threatened by potential compensation claims. 


What is a Swedish Massage?


Swedish massage is one of the most popular and commonly offered forms of massage therapy, which utilises a number of specialist techniques to improve the flexibility of a person’s muscles while boosting blood circulation. This then results in the release of toxins from the body, flushing out uric acid, lactic acid and other types of metabolic waste that exists in the muscle tissues. 


Ideal for aiding the body towards a quick recovery from muscular strain, there are 5 keystrokes that are involved in Swedish massage therapy. This includes friction, petrissage, vibration, tapotement and effleurage strokes. A combination of long, flowing and kneading strokes with movements that promote heat and vibration which are perfect for lifting and squeezing the muscles.  


While Swedish massage is considered as being a generally safe alternative for most people, there can be a few risks to look out for. While seeking to help improve injuries, masseurs who are too robust with their techniques can create new injuries or even impair athletic performance. If a client requires professional medical attention for a health issue, massage can distract patients from receiving appropriate care and can even result in stress caused to the nervous system, along with other issues.
