MASSAGE Magazine liability insurance policy for several health and wellness disciplines

MASSAGE Magazine has created a liability insurance policy for several health and wellness disciplines.

Below is information received from the publisher:

I came across your blog and very much enjoyed your writings on the laws and issues surrounding the CAM community. 

At MASSAGE Magazine we have created a liability insurance policy for several health and wellness disciplines and I thought that, perhaps, a partnership would be a good idea.  We cover massage therapists, yoga instructors, energy workers, estheticians, cosmetologists, dance instructors, among others.  Our one policy covers a practitioner for all of those disciplines and all of the nearly 400 Massage modalities that we cover.  We began our efforts by marketing to massage therapists because we have already built that audience. 

MASSAGE Magazine has been a trusted friend of the massage industry for over 25 years.  Our intimate knowledge of the industry, combined with years of active engagement with the health and wellness community, has allowed us to custom design this comprehensive liability insurance program catered to the unique needs of practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine.  Due to the very positive feedback and the considerable success we have had in the massage industry, we are now expanding our efforts to reach the community of Yoga Instructors and other related disciplines. 

We have created The National Association of Complementary and Alternative Medicines (NACAMS) through which we are now marketing and offering our comprehensive liability insurance.  

You can learn more about our businesses at these three websites: – The Website for MASSAGE Magazine – The Website for our insurance offering to Massage Therapists. – The website for our insurance offering to other disciplines including Yoga Instructors
