Massage Therapy & Acute Injuries

It is best for your clients to wait at least 72 hours following an acute injury before getting massages therapy.

Remember, when something goes wrong and a massage client gets injured, you could be liable and possibly sued.

As a massage therapist you need to protect yourself and only the best massage therapist insurance coverage will do!

The American Massage Council offers the most affordable and reliable professional liability insurance for massage therapy coverage and more.
