Why do sports massage therapists need insurance?
Sports massage insurance is important to protect sports massage therapists against expensive liability claims made on behalf of their client/s resulting from an injury from the treatment provided. Participation in sports massage carries a certain risk, meaning that sports massage therapists need to ensure they have the right insurance in the event of a claim. Sports massage insurance is available to qualified sports massage therapists and also students working towards gaining a sports massage qualification.
Why is sports massage insurance important?
Sports massage insurance acts as a legal safety net to minimise financial liability, should you be the subject of a claim – e.g., if a client suffers an injury, he or she may claim against you for compensation and/or medical costs.
Having insurance means that the financial liability of meeting these costs should be met by your insurance.
Sports massage therapists are often called upon to give advice to their clients. Insurance is important to protect you against any ill-effects suffered by the client as a result of your advice.

Thank you for your very helpful and personal service with my professional insurance. It felt like the old days when one would talk to a professional insurance broker rather than today's call centres with people reading by rote from a script: “Computer says …”
FitPro stepped up for their trainers during the pandemic. Every step of the way, with every permutation of the rules and guidelines we received an email update of what the rules meant for PTs and their businesses. They spelled out exactly what fitness professionals were allowed to do, what they weren’t allowed to do, and what the guidelines meant for us. This is just one of the reasons I always recommend graduates from our Personal Training courses to go to FitPro when they qualify with us. I’m so impressed with the service.
