As a massage therapist, you have learned and practiced many different types of massage techniques. Because you are so good at your job, sometimes it may seem that things always go well and you don’t need to worry about the risks that come with being a massage therapist.
Have you ever heard of Murphy’s Law? It’s a simple phrase that applies to almost every aspect of life, including massage therapy: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
In other words, it is not a matter of if something goes wrong with your massage therapy career, but when.
If you were to sit and think of all the ways that something could go wrong, you might be surprised just how much can happen. What would you do, for example, if a client claimed they tripped on a rug in your premises and injured themselves. Are you financially prepared if a client claims you injured them in the course of getting a massage and files a malpractice lawsuit? What if someone steals your supplies? Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
These and many other scenarios are a good reason why having professional liability insurance for massage therapists is so important, because it gives you the protection you need to prevent personal and business financial disaster. It can also give you peace of mind as you go about your work.
Whichever liability policy you choose, having insurance is an important aspect of your career that you shouldn’t ignore. Not only will you have the protection you need but it is also one of the best ways to combat Murphy’s Law.
