Massage Liability Insurance
Complete Guide and Comparison (2022)

Massage liability insurance pays for covered claims and legal defense if a client decides to sue their therapist for a loss due to injury from malpractice, negligence or other cause. Fortunately, since the risk of causing major injury to someone else with massage and bodywork is fairly low, the cost of massage liability insurance is relatively affordable for therapists and students. This article compares the costs and benefits of several of the best massage liability insurance companies and policies.

What does massage liability insurance cover?

The coverage that massage liability insurance provides to a practitioner varies depending on the carrier and the individual policy. The primary types of liability or risk that massage therapists are exposed to are covered by the three main types of liability insurance: professional liability, general liability, and product liability. All of the companies compared in this review include these three as components of their policies. Here are some additional things that may be covered by massage liability insurance:

  • Defense Counsel. If a claim is filed against you and is covered by the policy, this provides a lawyer for you with experience in medical malpractice. It also pays for related defense costs such as lawyer fees, court fees, and expert witness costs.
  • Sexual Misconduct/Abuse. This provides counsel to represent you in the event that (non-criminal) allegations of sexual misconduct are made against you. It also pays for defense costs unless or until the sexual misconduct or abuse is determined to have occurred.
  • License Protection is included with some professional liability policies. It provides reimbursement of attorney fees incurred during the investigation and defense of complaints to a licensing authority in the event of a client alleging professional misconduct or incompetence.
  • Good Samaritan Liability provides coverage in the event of a lawsuit resulting from a massage therapist providing services as a Good Samaritan in an emergency.
  • Personal Injury Liability provides coverage for the policyholder in the event of allegations of personal injury, assault and battery, slander or libel committed while providing massage services or in during normal business operations.
  • Medical Payments coverage reimburses medical expenses if a client is accidentally injured at your place of business.
  • First Aid coverage is a benefit that reimburses expenses incurred as a result of rendering emergency assistance to a sick or injured person until appropriate medical personal are available and can take over.
  • Damage to Property of Others is a common component of liability insurance, and covers accidental damage to someone else’s property during the course of normal operations. This can include coverage at your massage office, your home, a client’s home or a client’s business for therapists who offer mobile massage services. Examples include damage to a client’s clothing, furniture, jewelry, etc.
Professional liability insurance terminology for massage therapists

Massage Insurance Terms Defined

Aggregate Limit

The maximum amount that the carrier will pay for all claims arising from incidents that occurred and were reported during a given policy year, no matter how many claims arise during its term. Most massage liability insurance policies have an annual aggregate limit between $3 million and $6 million. 

Claim

An insurance claim is a formal request by an insurance policyholder to the insurance company for coverage or compensation for a loss or event that is covered by the policy. Examples of claims against a massage therapist that are potentially covered by liability insurance include client injuries such as a burn from hot stones, aggravation of previous injuries, excessive bruising, or stroke caused by mobilizing a blood clot during deep tissue massage. The insurance company may approve or deny the claim. If the claim is approved, the insurance company will issue payment to cover the claim.

Claims-Made Coverage

A type of liability insurance that only covers a claim if it is made during the policy period or approved reporting period. A claim will not be covered if it is filed after the policy ends, even if the actual event occurred during the policy period. This can cause problems since a client may not file a claim in a timely manner. The preferred type of insurance is occurrence-based (see definition below).

Coverage

Insurance coverage is the amount of liability that is provided to an insured individual or entity by the insurance company.

Declaration Page

The part of the insurance policy that discloses the terms of the policy, and states information such as the name and address of the insured, the policy period, the amount of coverage, premiums due for the policy period, and any coverage restrictions.

Deductible

The amount of the insured loss (in dollars) that is paid by the policyholder.

Endorsement

An endorsement is an amendment or rider to a policy that adjusts the coverages and takes precedence over the general contract. An example is an endorsement for hot stone massage or cupping therapy if it is not covered in the main liability policy.

General Liability Insurance

General liability (GL) insurance covers bodily injury or property damage due to an accident (other than a massage-related incident) at the location where massage therapy is being provided. It is also referred to as “slip and fall insurance” and covers a wide range of events. General liability insurance does not cover things such as damage to personal property, auto accidents, professional mistakes, intentional acts or employee injuries. Examples of claims against a massage therapist that are typically covered by professional liability insurance include:

  • A client slips on a tile floor due to some spilled massage oil that occurred earlier and had not been adequately cleaned.
  • A floor lamp gets knocked over and hits a client, resulting in a laceration that required medical treatment.

Indemnity

Indemnity is the legal principle that specifies an insured policyholder should not collect more than the actual cash value of a loss, but should be restored to approximately the same financial position that existed before the loss occurred.

Insurance Policy

An insurance policy is a written contract (legal document) between you and your insurer that provides details about insurance coverage for an ensured entity for a particular risk. It is essentially an agreement between you and your insurance company that lays out what’s covered and what isn’t, and it contains other details of your agreement. A typical insurance policy includes: 

  • Insurance policy number
  • How long you’re covered for (policy period)
  • Cost of your coverage (policy premium)
  • Your deductible(s)
  • The dollar amount of coverage
  • What’s covered under your policy
  • Things that are excluded from coverage
  • Definitions of insurance terms used in the policy

Insured

The individual, group or entity that is covered by an insurance policy.

Insurer

Any corporation or agency engaged primarily in the business of furnishing insurance to the public. The party to the insurance contract who promises to pay for covered losses or benefits.

Liability

A liability is any legally enforceable obligation.

Limits of Liability

This is the total amount of coverage you purchase by paying your premium. In other words, it is the amount of money available under the policy to pay for any sort of losses that you may incur because of a situation anticipated and covered by the policy. 

Malpractice

Protection against claims of negligence or mistakes which cause harm to a client. This could include things like bodily injury cause by the massage, or giving wrong advice, or not delivering what was agreed upon.

Negligence

Considered and act of omission in which the treatment provided falls below the standard of care, resulting in injury or harm to the client or patient.

Occurrence Based Policy

Occurrence-Based insurance policies cover claims from incidents that occur during the policy period, even if the claim is filed after the policy has expired. Occurrence based insurance is the preferred type of policy because it does not rely on a client filing a claim in a timely manner.

Per Occurrence Limit

Also called per claim limit, this is the maximum amount of coverage available for each individual claim under the policy during its term.

Policy Period

The time between the start and end of an insurance policy. Also called coverage period or policy term.

Premium

The cost of the insurance policy.

Product Liability Insurance

Product liability coverage protects the therapist if a client has an adverse reaction, such as an allergic reaction, to a product. Massage therapists commonly use products such as essential oils, lubricants, balms, liniments, herbs, and disinfectants which can potentially cause an adverse event, sometimes even severe, life-threatening events. The adhesive on various taping products such as kinesiotape can also cause a reaction in people who are sensitive to adhesives.

Professional Liability Insurance

Professional liability insurance (PLI), also called malpractice insurance or errors and omissions (E&O), protects a service professional such as a massage therapist, doctor, lawyer or accountant against lawsuits, and pays for damages if they arise. Professional liability insurance can protect a massage therapist against claims from causes such as malpractice, negligence or misrepresentation. Massage therapists and students need PLI because these types of claims are not covered by general liability insurance. Examples of claims against a massage therapist that are typically covered by professional liability insurance include:

  • A client sustains a burn during a hot stone massage, or when using a hot pack.
  • Joint dislocation (e.g. hip or shoulder joint) that occurs during passive ROM or assisted stretching.
  • Soft tissue damage from overly aggressive deep tissue massage.

Risk

Risk is defined as the possibility of suffering harm or loss. Massage therapy is a relatively low-risk therapeutic treatment, but there is still a risk of client injury and a risk of a massage therapist facing a lawsuit. 

Risk Management

The process of identifying the risks associated with certain activities and then developing strategies to reduce these risks to an acceptable level. For example, a massage therapist may identify several risks associated with working with clients in a special population such as medically compromised or geriatric clients. Or the therapist could identify risks associated with providing a certain type of massage such as deep tissue massage or hot stone massage. These risks typically involve the risk of injury to a client, which could be followed by the risk of a malpractice lawsuit. A risk management strategy for a massage therapist could include: receiving specialized training, advanced certification, getting malpractice insurance, having clients complete a health history form, conducting a thorough client assessment, requiring a client to get medical clearance from their physician, structuring their massage business as an LLC (limited liability company), or having the client sign an informed consent form and liability waiver or release.

Waiver

An agreement attached to an insurance policy which exempts from coverage certain disabilities or injuries that otherwise would be covered by the policy.

Frequently Asked Questions About Massage Insurance

Why do I need massage liability insurance?

Massage liability insurance is required by many businesses if you work as an employee or an independent contractor. If you are not required by an employer or if are self-employed, it is still a good idea to always have massage liability insurance when working with clients. Even skilled and experienced therapists can make mistakes, or be accused of doing something that resulted in harm to a client. Liability insurance covers the amount that you could be legally obligated to pay should there be a claim against you for a covered incident. For massage therapists, liability insurance is relatively affordable, especially when compared to a lawsuit that could easily cost thousands of dollars.

Does a liability waiver protect a massage therapist from a lawsuit?

A liability waiver, also called a release form, is a legally binding document that requires a client to acknowledge and agree to accept certain risks related to the services provided. By signing the waiver, the client waives the massage therapist’s or company’s liability for damages associated with these inherent risks. This can insulate the therapist and business from civil damages if the client suffers losses or injuries. There are limits to this protection however. A liability waiver will not protect a massage therapist if a client is injured due to malpractice or negligence.

What factors should a massage therapist consider when researching liability insurance companies?

  • Covered modalities. Make sure it includes the types of massage and bodywork services that you provide.
  • Amount of coverage.
  • Types of insurance. Many companies also include general liability and product liability coverage. Make sure the policy will include the coverage that you need.
  • Customer support. Choose a company that provides you the level of support that you need.
  • Additional useful benefits like free continuing education courses, magazine subscription, and discounts from other vendors.
  • Stability of the company.
  • Cost. If everything else is equal, then cost is the last consideration. A $30 price difference is insignificant if it’s between purchasing a good policy from a reputable company or purchasing from a company that may not provide protection when you need it. Think of it like this, you wouldn’t want to buy the cheapest seatbelt on the market.

What other types of insurance coverage should massage therapists consider getting in addition to liability insurance?

Workers compensation insurance which pays the medical costs of personal injuries sustained during work.
Disability insurance to pay a monthly benefit if you become disabled and unable to work (e.g. injury to hands or back)
Commercial auto insurance to protect your business if you offer mobile massage or otherwise use your car for work. It also protects a company vehicle if involved in a collision, or if it is stolen or vandalized.
Business interruption insurance provides protection for the loss of revenue and coverage of continued fixed expenses (e.g. rent, utilities, business loan payments) that results from a temporary business closure. This disruption of business could be caused by damage from a flood, hurricane, earthquake or fire. Or other causes such as a pandemic and mandatory business shutdown.

How do I buy massage liability insurance?

Buying a massage liability insurance policy is a pretty straightforward process and can be done in three simple steps:

  1. Determine what coverage you need. Consider the types of massage and bodywork that you intend to provide for your clients.
  2. Compare insurance companies and policies. The cost of a liability insurance policy is only one factor to consider. Also look at the provider’s reputation, stability, customer service, amount and type of coverage, exclusions, and other benefits of choosing the company.
  3. Contact the insurance company and purchase a policy. Some companies allow you to apply completely online and give immediate coverage, while others may require additional documentation and approval.
