Most professional massage therapists and bodyworkers are well aware that one’s mental state can affect the quality of a session, either for the good or for the bad. Many of the most successful massage therapists and bodyworkers are those who can create a calm and sacred space in the session room, where clients can come to gain a sense of peace and rejuvenation.
However, massage therapists and bodyworkers are only human, and these practitioners experience their fair share of bad days as well as good ones. Again, the massage therapists and bodyworkers who can set aside their own personal issues or problems for the sake of creating a healing space in the session room are often the practitioners who continue to thrive.
While it is important to be able to set aside any pressing personal issues for the sake of an upcoming session, it is also important to take proactive steps toward building up one’s peace of mind. When possible, this may mean taking action to allay any ongoing worries, so you can free up the mental energy to direct toward peace and positive energy in the session room.
It is a wonderful thing when we can find simple ways to generate more peace of mind and less worries. A great example of one such easy method, which applies to professional massage therapists and bodyworkers, is securing massage therapists insurance. A massage therapy insurance program will help ease any concerns about a client, at some unknown point in the future, filing a claim for damage or injury.
It is possible to attain the strong safety net of massage therapists insurance for less than a couple hundred dollars per year, and this fee also may be deductible on your taxes as a business expense. When you consider the peace of mind that solid massage therapy liability insurance could bring, the price may seem even more reasonable.
For starters, massage therapists insurance will provide financial coverage and assistance in case a client ever slips, trips, falls or otherwise suffers an accident on the property of your practice and decides to sue you for the damages. In such a situation, it would be the general liability portion of your massage therapy liability insurance that would kick in to provide the necessary coverage.
Other forms of protection included in a high quality massage therapy liability insurance program would include malpractice or professional liability insurance and also product liability insurance. The malpractice or professional liability insurance is designed to protect you and your assets in case a client ever claims he or she suffered an injury due to a lack of skill or competence on your part as the professional massage therapist or bodyworker.
The product liability insurancey works in much the same way, except it is geared toward providing coverage if a client claims the damage or injury was due to a product used in the session room, such as a heated massage tool that may have caused a burn or a faulty massage table that might have broken down during the appointment.
