Massage Students & Massage Liability Insurance

Massage therapy students are most likely to be covered under the massage schools liability insurance while enrolled in a massage school. Supplemental insurance may be needed when the student starts practicing massage therapy at the student clinic on the school premises, for outside events or internships outside of school. 

Once a student has passed their State of Michigan exam and has applied for and received their State Massage License and the student is no longer enrolled in massage school, they will need to purchase professional massage liability insurance in order to practice massage.
