The longer you practice as a massage therapist or bodywork, the more you may need to guard against the natural inclination to revert into “auto pilot” mode, especially when it comes to the details of your practice that might seem minor. By staying alert and aware of the state of your practice, you can not only provide a better experience for your clients, but also help prevent any accidents or other issues.
Keeping a keen eye on the state of your practice means taking a good look—on a consistent basis—at the safety of your business. For example, you need to make sure that there are never any slick spots on the floors or items such as loose rugs, which may cause a client to slip. You also need to ensure that all walk ways and door ways are clear of any obstacle that might cause a client to fall.
These types of safety issues may seem quite basic, but when practitioners fall into that rote “auto pilot” mode, these details could go unnoticed, and a client could end up suffering a slip, trip or fall. Besides making sure there are no obvious hazards in and around your practice, you will also need to take proper precautions inside your session room.
With a massage insurance policy, you will have protection and coverage in case a client does suffer an accident or injury on the property of your practice or inside your session room. Even with the best efforts of the practitioner to keep his or her practice safe, there is always the chance of an unexpected accident or injury.
