Take the stress out of choosing insurance

Finding the right insurance policy can be a challenging and time-consuming process. Luckily, IICT has made this easy for you.


Whether you’ve just launched your complementary therapies practice or are running a full-time clinic, it’s important to have insurance. Finding the right insurance policy can be a challenging and time-consuming process. Policies are often written in complicated legal jargon – and it can be difficult to find cover for all areas of your practice.

In the past, a common way to get relevant insurance was to join an association that represented your modality, but what if you had more than one modality? Would that mean you’d need multiple associations and insurance providers to cover each of your modalities?

Short answer? Yes. Many associations will only cover the modality represented by that association. If you practice more than one modality, you might have to join multiple associations to cover each treatment you offer clients.

This could increase your business costs significantly because you might have to:

  • Cover membership fees for several associations
  • Pay for multiple insurance policies
  • Spend additional time on continuing education courses required by each association.

“Before joining IICT, I found it impossible to be recognised by any professional body for my specialist modality, Past Life Regression,” says Toni.

“As a therapist I required Past Life Regression to be recognised as a legitimate complementary therapy.”

“Nothing worked and there was nobody who would insure any therapist for Past Life Regression.”

“That was until I began working with the amazing team at IICT. They worked long and hard to make available insurance and to have it recognised as a legitimate therapy.”
