Why Massage Therapist Liability Insurance Matters.

Why massage therapist liability insurance matters. When it comes to finding and selecting a Massage Therapist, people have more choices than ever. When researching which therapist, spa or service to utilize, the information a consumer would gather will generally fall into two separate categories (I’ll be focusing on the latter): The first is subjective, or qualitative. In other words, we’re talking about opinions rather than cold hard facts. For example, a therapist can make pre

Letter to Charlie Crist Florida Governor Campaign on PIP and Massage

Dear Crist Campaign, I am wondering what Mr. Crist's position is with respect to changes to the PIP laws last year, passed by one vote and pushed through by Gov.
