Liability Insurance for Ashiatsu

Does my professional liability insurance cover Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage?

Double check to make sure that your professional liability insurance covers ashiatsu or barefoot massage techniques. Most major insurance companies and associations do cover ashiatsu barefoot massage.


From an email I received:
“Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage is covered under the AMTA liability policy, if it is accepted within your state’s legal regulations. So basically, if your state says it is an acceptable and legal modality to practice, the AMTA liability coverage will cover it.”


From an email I received:
“As I understand it, Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage is not excluded from the coverage. Modalities that are listed on the modality list are there because a certain number of members say they practice it. That list does not determine coverage, but it more for advertising services because they show up under your profile at”

I have put in an informal request to add ashiatsu to their list.

Not to be biased, but this is the company that I use for my liability insurance. I have been a member of both the AMTA and ABMP and think they are both great organizations. Here is a link to MMIP approvals. Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage is included.
