Specialist Insurance For Cupping Therapists
As a certified cupping therapist, you always face the risk of public liability or professional malpractice 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 Liability cover.
From only £3.65 a month, our insurance can help reimburse your solicitor’s fees, legal costs and perhaps, any claims made against you. Accordingly, look for an insurance provider that offers an all-inclusive policy which covers cupping therapy and the possible Public Liability on it.
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 £5,000.
