One of the most popular forms of massage worldwide, the practice of Thai massage or “Thai yoga massage” is a traditional healing system that was thought to have been developed over 2,500 years ago in East Asia.  


This form of massage combines a variety of techniques such as acupressure, yoga postures and some elements of Indian Ayurvedic principles to provide a spiritual and physical transformation to the recipient. 


In comparison to Western massaging techniques which focus on kneading the muscles, Thai massage involves the application of pressure on energy points of the body. This can also include stretching, compressing, pulling and rocking limbs or muscles, with assistive yoga poses. 


When correctly practiced, Thai massage can be incredibly beneficial and help provide temporary relief for muscle pain, assist with relaxation and boost moods. It is also good for those struggling with stress issues, poor circulation and improves joint mobility. 


What Does Our Thai Massage Insurance Cover Include?


In order to provide the best experience for your clients, we know that you work incredibly hard to maintain continually high standards of service. To ensure that you can keep devoting your time to performing a relaxing and stimulating service, it is important to have an effective Thai massage insurance policy in place to protect your business and yourself from the risk of a client making a claim against you for injury or damage to their property.  The consequences of not having a robust insurance policy for this type of eventuality can be catastrophic to your business and could damage your reputation greatly. 


The Professional Beauty Direct Thai massage policy includes £6 million in public liability, product liability and treatment liability cover. 


  • Public liability cover is a type of insurance that covers an injury caused to a client or damage to their property, such as slips, trips and falls or you spilling a drink on their carpet if you were to treat them in their own home.  This cover is specific to non-treatment related injuries or accidental damage to the client’s property. 


  • Product liability cover is designed to protect you in the event that a product sold by you following the treatment process were to cause an injury or reaction to the customer.


  • Treatment liability cover can protect you against claims made by clients who have suffered from an injury or illness as a direct result of your Thai massage techniques. 


In addition to our standard insurance policy, you can add extensions such as property and equipment or teacher training cover for a small additional fee. 


Why is Thai Massage Insurance Important?


Unlike other types of massage therapy, Thai massage does not generally involve the usage of oils. The method focuses on masseuses using their hands, elbows, feet and forearms to stretch and compress muscles. 


If your client has pre-existing health conditions which are undisclosed before beginning the massage, you may cause an injury.  This is why it is imperative that you undertake a full consultation with your client to ensure that there are no reasons or contraindications that would restrict or prevent treatment.  You must also remember to complete and retain a record card as evidence of this to be sure you do not breach any conditions of your insurance coverage.


Thai massages should generally be avoided with people who suffer from:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Neurological diseases
  • Loose joint disease
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Forms of cancer
  • Dermatitis 
  • Injuries such as broken bones
  • Pregnancy
  • Wounded areas


Clients can experience side effects from Thai massages such as:

  • Stress to the nervous system 
  • Aggravate injuries or chronic pain
  • Impact blood flow
  • Cause new injuries
  • Impair athletic performance


If your client suffers an injury from your technique or suffers an allergic reaction to any of your products, they are within their legal rights to make a claim against you. This can often damage the reputation of your business as well as impact your livelihood if you do not have the correct Thai massage insurance policy in place to protect you.
