What does Cupping Therapy Insurance cover?

As a certified cupping therapist, you always face the risk of public liability or professional indemnity lawsuit. A filed claim against you is very likely to put your practice at risk, set you back by thousands of pounds and possibly bankrupt you; and worst of all, destroy your credibility as a holistic practitioner.

To protect yourself and your business from such possible situations, it is advisable that along with the necessary professional license and academic certifications, you also get the optimum Professional Indemnity cover.

Our Cupping Therapy Insurance can help reimburse your solicitor’s fees, legal costs and perhaps, any claims made against you. 


You may also need to protect any business equipment that you own to carry out your treatments and activities. This optional benefit can be included in your policy and will cover any equipment valued between £500 to £3,000.

What's included in your Cupping Therapy Insurance policy?

Our policy offers the following benefits as standard:

Public Liability

Up to £5 million worth of Public Liability is included to cover you if, while performing your Cupping Therapy, cause accidental injury to a patient or other member of the public, or damage a third-party’s property.

Equipment Cover

In the event that you suffer accidental damage to some of your business property or are the victim of theft, you could be covered for up to £3,000. Just choose to include Equipment Cover on your quote.

Professional Indemnity

Professional Indemnity is also included as standard, meaning you will be protected if a client decides to sue you for providing negligent advice which resulted in an injury.

Employers' Liability

If you employ any member of staff, Employers’ Liability is a legal requirement. With this in place you are covered if any employee suffered physical injury or death as a result of the employer’s negligence. If that staff member sought compensation, the insurer would handle the cost of the claim.
