Animal Massage Insurance

People who have pets often treat their animals like they are family. When they come to you to give their pet a massage, they are hoping you can contribute to the animal’s overall health and well-being. Animals are unpredictable, obtaining massage therapist insurance can protect you from mistakes that could cost you thousands of dollars.

BBI Is the Coverage You Need

You would never purposely hurt an animal. But in the course of your techniques it is possible that an animal could get injured. What if the animal moves in the middle of the massage and the owner claims you caused an injury? And don’t forget about the owners, who could trip and fall while they’re on your premises. It’s important that you have the correct type of liability coverage in case of an injury or lawsuit.

If you need animal massage therapy insurance, look no further than our Beauty and Bodywork Insurance (BBI) policy. We offer coverage for professional animal massage therapists for only $9.99/month or $96/year.

What Is Animal Bodywork Liability Insurance?

Working with animals can be tricky. Also known as public liability insurance, animal massage insurance protects your liability claims, which can include bodily injury, property damage, allergic reactions, and more. Even the best experts can’t always predict how an animal will react to massage therapy. 

BBI’s animal massage insurance coverage includes:

  • General & professional liability
  • Products & completed operations
  • Personal & advertising injury
  • Damage to premises rented to you

Some policies, like BBI, also offer tools and supplies coverage, also known as Inland Marine, to help to cover any damages to equipment or supplies.

What Does Animal Massage Therapy Insurance Cover?

Included in a standard animal bodywork liability insurance policy:

  • General Liability Insurance
    • This policy covers third-party claims of bodily injury and property damage. It can help pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages awarded in a lawsuit.
  • Professional Liability Insurance
    • This policy covers claims of professional misconduct. Your end goal is to improve the physical well-being of animals, but we understand it doesn’t always go as planned. Professional liability protects you if you’re accused of causing physical harm to an animal. 
  • Personal and Advertising Injury
    • This coverage can help protect you if you’re accused of libel, slander, or false advertising.
  • Damage to Premises Rented to You
    • This coverage can help reimburse you for the cost of repairing or replacing damaged property.
    • If you’re a mobile animal massage therapist, this coverage helps protect you while on the road.

Cupping Endorsement

For just $35, you can add the cupping therapy endorsement to your BBI policy. Current BBI clients can purchase this endorsement from their dashboard. New BBI customers can simply select the cupping therapy endorsement when purchasing their policy. Please note the cupping therapy endorsement excludes wet or fire cupping.

Common Animal Massage Insurance Coverage Questions

You can opt to include the additional coverages to your liability insurance policy:

  • Cupping Endorsement
    • This covers claims arising from the use of cupping therapy.
  • Supplies & Tools Coverage
    • Also called Inland Marine insurance, this policy covers the cost of replacing lost or damaged supplies and tools, such as animal massage rollers or therapeutic massagers.
  • Additional Insureds
    • You may need to add additional insureds, such as your employer or the owner of the space where you work. When you add a person, event, or organization to your animal massage therapy insurance policy as an additional insured, they receive protection if they are named in a lawsuit due to a covered business-related loss/claim because of your actions or operations.
  • Cyber Liability Insurance
    • If you collect or store customer information – names, addresses, even payment information – and that information is stolen or compromised, your business could be held liable. Cyber Liability insurance can protect you from paying hefty fees, judgements, legal cost, fines, and processor fees that you become legally liable to pay.

We highly recommend having insurance as an animal massage therapist. Many franchises and landlords will require it. The biggest plus to having animal bodywork liability insurance is the peace of mind for your business. There are inherent risks involved with working with animals. There’s always a chance an animal might react negatively or move sporadically and get injured while you perform the massage.

If you are a mobile or self-employed animal massage therapist, you’ll want to protect your business from lawsuits since it can damage your business. .

In the event of a lawsuit, you may have to pay legal costs to defend yourself even if you’re not found liable. With insurance coverage, you don’t have to burden those costs alone.

Buy Policy

  • You can opt in for $2,000 in coverage for your tools and supplies in case of damage or theft for $13 per year.
