Becoming a massage therapist can lead to a career that’s both personally and financially rewarding, but this work comes with a certain amount of risk. Along with common accidents that most businesses must be prepared for, therapists also need to think about what could happen to their business if they injure a client. Massage therapy insurance policies help shield massage therapists in Vermont from a variety of covered perils that they’re exposed to.
Massage therapy insurance policies are specialized policies that have been tailored to the needs of massage therapists. Most policies are drafted as package policies, which means they come with multiple coverages within them.
The majority of massage therapists in Vermont ought to have a massage insurance policy, for few therapists are free from all risk exposure and this typically is the most appropriate insurance for massage therapists. Without insurance, therapists can be dangerously exposed to potential risks.
Massage therapists who work for spas or other businesses as employees might receive insurance coverage through their place of employment. Not all employers provide coverage for employees, though, and sometimes the coverage afforded isn’t as robust as therapists would like it to be. Any provided coverage also usually doesn’t extend to side gigs that aren’t done through the employer.
Because of these caveats, massage therapists who work as traditional employees normally should speak with a knowledgeable insurance agent before they simply trust that their employer provides adequate insurance coverage. A specialized agent will be able to review an employer’s policy to see what (if any) protections it gives employees, and then the agent can help a therapist decide whether they need to purchase additional protection.
This matter normally doesn’t apply to massage therapists who work as independent contractors and therefore, are typically viewed as business owners rather than traditional employees.
Our business was with the same trusted agent for over 20 years. Mike Bancroft offered to evaluate our policies and see if he could save us some money on both Workmen's Comp and general liability. He did, and in the process even moved us to better coverage. Mike also offers a superb quality of service. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Mike Bancroft has been great to work with. He has assisted with my Business Auto, Tool Coverage, Homeowners and all other types of insurance needs. I wouldn't be surprised if they change their name to Paige, Campbell & Bancroft soon!
Extremely prompt, personable, and professional service! Despite only needing a workers' comp policy for one employee, Paige & Campbell was very receptive and ensured to shop my policy around to ensure I received a great price that was almost half of what another broker quoted me.
Massage therapists can often adjust the coverages in their policy and not all massage insurance policies come with the same available coverages, so the protections that policies ultimately provide can vary. Nevertheless, there are several common coverages that tend to be widely available:
Whether a massage policy offers coverage for home-based massage therapy businesses varies. Some policies easily accommodate this type of situation, while other policies don’t provide any coverage for at-home work. Therapists who have a home-based business should consult an insurance agent who specializes in this type of commercial coverage, as such an agent will be able to assist in finding an appropriate policy.

Mike Bancroft is simply an amazing agent. When my business got burglarized, I was so upset and didn't know what to do. I contacted Mike and he was very prompt in calling me back and he put my mind at ease. He made me feel so much better and handled all of the paperwork immediately. His customer service is top notch and I highly recommend him to be your insurance agent!
