Massage - Aromatherapy Insurance

During a massage, muscles are stimulated to help relax the body. But touch isn’t the only sense that could be stimulated during a massage. Thanks to aromatherapy, your sense of smell is also stimulated. The scent of lavender as your muscles are being kneaded is intended to help create the ultimate sense of relation during a massage session.

The scent is usually gotten from essential oils. Those oils are then mixed with things like lotions and humidifiers. The scent is supposed to help reduce stress and symptoms of anxiety. There is a wide variety of scents the client may choose from to help create the most customized experience for the client.

Aromatherapy is very versatile. It can be used alongside hot stone massages, deep tissue massages, baby massages, and so much more. This versatility means a wider range of consumers, each with their own risks when taking on aromatherapy. 

Unfortunately, despite the relaxing nature of aromatherapy massages, they still hold risks. The oils may cause your client an allergic reaction. Rashes may form on their back, and you will be liable. The FDA does not regulate essential oils for safety because they are considered cosmetic products, so unexpected side effects may occur. If a client has asthma, they could react negatively to the aroma. These are not including the risks of the actual massage. The massage could hurt someone if done wrong. One wrong move could damage a client’s muscles. Thankfully professionalliability insurance helps cover those accidental damages. 

Damages caused by 3rd parties happen all the time. Whether they slip down some stairs or something loose falls onto someone, and they get hurt. Whatever it is, as long as it’s on your company's property, you will be liable. To protect yourself against such damages,  you should get commercial general liability insurance. It protects you against 3rd party damages that happen on your property.
