BBI is the coverage you need

You have had years of training and practice to be a deep tissue massage therapist, and you are good at your job. Unfortunately, accidents can and do happen. What if a client came to your salon with an existing injury and they claim you made it worse? What if a client fell off the table and hit their head? These and other liability claims can be financially crippling for your business.

Beauty and Bodywork Insurance (BBI) offers professionals who perform therapeutic deep tissue massage the liability coverage they need. Having deep tissue massage insurance means that you can achieve peace of mind knowing that you have done your part to reduce the financial risks that come with being a massage therapist.

What is Deep Tissue Massage Therapy Insurance?

Deep tissue massage liability insurance, also known as public liability insurance, protects you and your business from liability claims as you treat clients’ chronic pain and muscle and sports-related injuries. These types of claims can include bodily injury, property damage, allergic reactions to oils, and more. Our deep tissue massage insurance coverage includes general & professional liability, products & completed operations, personal & advertising injury, and damage to premises rented to you.

It can also include tools and supplies coverage, also known as Inland Marine, to help to cover any damages to the items that help you treat your clients’ injuries, pain, and stiffness.

The base BBI policy doesn’t cover cupping. If you plan on including any cupping within your deep tissue massage practice, the cupping endorsement will protect you from any cupping-related claims.

Included in a standard deep tissue massage 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, such as sexual harassment. It can also help protect you if you’re accused of causing physical harm to a client. For instance, if your elbow slips while applying pressure and you aggravate an injury more, you’d be covered. 
  • 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 deep tissue massage therapist, this coverage helps protect you while on the road.

Buy Policy

You can upgrade your base deep tissue massage liability insurance with the following additional coverages:

  • Cupping Endorsement
    • This covers claims arising from the use of cupping therapy.
  • Fitness Trainer Endorsement
    • This coverage is needed if you plan to include some form of fitness training such as yoga, dance, or personal training into your business operations. 
  • Acupuncture Endorsement
    • Acupuncture is often used in massage therapy. This coverage can help protect you if acupuncture needles injure a client.
  • Supplies & Tools Coverage
    • Also called Inland Marine insurance, this policy covers the cost of replacing lost or damaged supplies and tools, such as massage tables and oils.
  • 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 deep tissue 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.
