Medical Malpractice Insurance

Insurance for Alternative and Complementary Therapists and Holistic Therapists

In today's increasingly litiguous society, and with more and more people choosing alternative or complementary and holistic treatments and therapies, it is important to make sure that you and your business are protected in the event that a claim is made against you. Members of the public are all to quick to issue a claim without trying to sort an issue out amicably. It would appear that people are expecting large pay-outs in the event that a treatment was not up to the clients high standards. Don't get caught out by this and protect yourself against claims of malpractice by getting appropriate insurance cover.

We have listed a selection of alternative and complementary and holistic practitioners, with a brief description of what each profession's activity. In most of the professions listed, we are able to offer Medical Malpractice Indemnity Insurance cover to Quote and Buy Online. Where this is not possible and for the more traditional professions such as doctors, nurses, dentists and vets, there is a full brokering service available.

Treatment Treatment Information

Reviews of acupressure clinical trials have been conducted by the Cochrane Collaboration and Bandolier according to the protocols of evidence-based medicine; for most conditions they have concluded a lack of effectiveness or lack of well-conducted clinical trials.

According to acupuncture theory, these acupuncture points lie along meridians along which qi, a kind of vital energy, is said to flow.

The Alexander Technique is considered to be an educational technique taught to be practiced by the student on their own, rather than a curative treatment regimen of the client/patient relationship. It is designed to be used while doing any other activity, so there are no prescriptive forms of movements to follow.
