Insurance for complementary therapists has been designed to provide protection against an allegation of medical malpractice arising from most types of complementary therapy. Cover includes public liability, medical malpractice and products liability cover for a £5,000,000 limit of indemnity.

Complementary therapy covers many specialist areas; all of these therapies have to be carefully assessed to provide the most suitable, and competitively priced, cover.
