Professional and General Liability Insurance Policy and Procedure
The RRCO offers a non-mandatory professional and general liability insurance policy.
The policy includes $2 million general liability and $2 million professional liability for a cost of $241.16 per year, including taxes.
This policy covers RRCO Registered Reflexology Practitioners practicing the following modalities:
Acupressure, Aromatherapy, Bowen Technique, Craniosacral, Hellerwork, Hot Stone Massage, Indian Head Massage, Ion Foot Cleanse, Iridology, Polarity Therapy, Qi Gong, Reflexology, Reiki, Rejuvenating Face Massage, Relaxation/Chair Massage, Shiatsu, Thai Massage, Therapeutic Touch, Touch for Health, and Swedish Massage.
Any RRCO registrant in good standing may apply for this insurance coverage. Current membership in the RRCO is the only requirement to apply for this coverage. Membership in other organizations is not a requirement of this RRCO insurance policy.
The RRCO recommends that a practicing Reflexologist, whether registered or not, should carry Professional AND General liability insurance. EXAMPLE: If you injure a client during a treatment, this is a professional liability. If your client is injured from a collapsing treatment table, this is a general liability. Please note, the RRCO recommends that you carry both, professional and general liability together in order to protect yourself as a professional.
An unregistered, certified Reflexologist may apply for membership to the RRCO by sending a cheque for $100.00 (renewals are $75) and a copy of their Reflexology certification from any of the RRCO registered schools. Current membership in these schools is not a requirement; proof of certification is.
