Insurance Information

As a licensed practitioner of therapeutic massage in Texas, you are generally not required to have liability coverage. However, many establishments where you might practice do require it and, if for no other reason, you should have it for your own peace of mind. You will of course be covered by insurance during your Basic Program training. Its cost is included in your tuition, and you're protected during training for up to one year from the date you begin classes. After graduation you'll want to obtain your own insurance--fortunately, it's easy and relatively inexpensive.

Here are just a few organizations that provide coverage for massage professionals. We can't recommend a choice, but will instead leave it up to you to check them out. Hint: Have a look at their Web site before you call or write.
