Why You Need Student Massage Insurance

Our student massage insurance policy is specifically designed to give you the massage insurance coverage you need at a price that’s hard to beat. For only $67/year, BBI wants to help you become the best professional massage therapist you can be without spending hundreds of dollars on student massage insurance.
Why You Need Insurance
As a massage therapy student, you are learning the intricate techniques of manipulating muscles to help clients find relief from chronic pain, a moment of relaxation, or simply a massage to improve their emotional and physical well-being. While many students are covered under their school's liability policy, many practice outside of class hours and off campus where accidents can and do happen. For this reason, it's important to have massage insurance coverage while enrolled in massage therapy school.
Student massage insurance protects you from general & professional liability claims. General & Professional liability claims include bodily injury, property damage, allergic reactions to oils, and more. While you may be cautious and attentive to details, risks of accident or injury are simply a part of becoming a massage therapist. Protecting your new profession and your assets, even while in school, is crucial.
Below is a list of claims filed with BBI.
- A client scheduled an appointment at the local massage school. During treatment, a student massage therapist accidentally damaged nerves in the right arm. A suit was filed against the insured and BBI covered $25,000 in damages.
- While performing a hot stone massage, a student massage therapist accidentally burned the back of the client. A suit was filed and BBI covered $12,259 in damages.
- A client scheduled a deep tissue massage at the local massage school. After the treatment, the client complained that the massage performed by the student left her with numbness in her limbs. A suit was filed and BBI covered $2,000 in damages.
