Business insurance for Therapists

As a holistic or complementary therapist, insurance supports the important work you do helping clients to overcome illness, injury and trauma, even when other kinds of treatment haven’t helped. But you’re working closely with people and sometimes things don’t go smoothly, so it’s just as important to think of your own health, financial position and reputation. Commercial holistic insurance gives you peace of mind and cover to do just that.

Insuring your therapy practice

Holistic and complementary therapies can help your clients to look and feel better. It’s a job that requires care, hard work and organisation. On a practical level things break and sometimes people make mistakes, but there's also the risk that a customer might be unhappy with the results of their treatment or even claim it made things worse. Insurance for therapists and holistic practitioners can cover you for accidents, injuries, dissatisfied clients and more.

Why you need business insurance in complementary therapy

Accidents and injuries

It doesn't matter if you work from home or you have a dedicated treatment room, there’s always a risk that a member of the public could be injured while visiting you - whether your business is at fault or not. It may not even have anything to do with their treatment. Either way, injuries are upsetting and stressful, but they can also cost you time and money and they’re not good for your reputation either. With holistic therapist insurance, we’ll cover you for expenses and legal claims, so you can get back to business.

When treatments don't work out

The nature of what you do means that there’s always the risk a client may not be happy with your work. They may have had unrealistic expectations to begin with, or possibly an allergic reaction to a treatment. The may even claim that you or an employee made things worse. No matter who’s at fault, if a client brings a malpractice claim against your business, you’ll need a professional insurance policy for therapists that defends and protects you.

Keeping data safe

Your clients trust you with personal information – it goes along with the job. But they expect you to keep their data safe and if you lose their files, or a hacker breaks into your computer and steals personal information, your client may sue you. You could also be fined heavily for breaching data protection laws. Having business insurance in place means we’ll cover the costs of recovering data and any legal expenses incurred in defending yourself.
