What Our Deep Tissue Massage Insurance Covers
Deep Tissue massage insurance from MMIP provides both liability coverage and additional safeguards that provide the best all-around protection possible.
Our Deep Tissue Massage Insurance Plans Provide Coverage Under the Following Areas:
General Liability Insurance: This is also known as “slip and fall” insurance because that’s a common type of accident that can cause a claim. When you open your doors and start receiving clients, you’re also opening yourself up to general liability. Coverage here applies to injuries or property damage to third-party individuals in and around your place of business. A client tripping over a loose front door mat and injuring themselves is an example of an event that would fall under this coverage type.
Rental Damage Coverage: Many deep tissue massage therapists rent space in order to provide their sessions to clients. All it can take is a simple misstep from a client or other visitor to your space and you’re suddenly facing damages to your rental premises. When this occurs, our protection plan provides all the way up to $150,000 to help cover the costs of repairs.
Professional Liability Insurance: Also called “malpractice coverage” this protection is for the actual services you provide during a session. If a client reports an injury or somehow has their property damaged during treatment, they may seek legal action to get compensation. These types of claims would fall under professional liability.
Stolen/Damaged Equipment Protection: You rely on your equipment in order to provide a session so a robbery-by-force can be both a harrowing experience and also costly having to replace what was taken. That’s why our plan includes up to $2,000 to cover the costs of replacement with a low $250 deductible.
Product Liability Insurance: To provide a great session for your clients, you’ll likely use a number of different instruments and tools. When equipment malfunctions, or a client has a bad reaction to something in one of the products you used, they may require medical attention. Afterwards, the client may demand you pay for all their costs since it was your product that caused their injury. Claims like this would fall under product liability coverage.
Identity Protection Plan: Today’s deep tissue massage therapists are exposed more than ever to the threat of a cyber incident stealing their personal data. If this occurs, our members get all the way up to $25,000 in identity restoration services.
Personal Injury & Advertising Coverage: This coverage can provide financial assistance to massage therapists if they become legally obligated to pay damages that arise from claims related to false advertising, libel or slander or copyright infringement. For example, if a MT's marketing materials inadvertently included false statements that damage another person's reputation, this coverage can help with legal and financial fallouts.
Full Suite Protection: It’s the full suite of protections offered in our plans that provides the best level of security possible from all the types of risks facing today’s deep tissue massage therapists. We’ve designed our plans to be an effective safeguard so that our members can focus on providing great treatments to clients, rather than what their insurance covers.

What Is a Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep tissue massage uses slow, pressured strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries. Some studies have found massage helpful for stress relief; managing anxiety, depression, pain, stiffness, blood pressure, sports-related injuries; and boost immunity.
