In addition to being part of Australia’s peak organisation for myotherapists, Myotherapy Association Australia members also receive the following benefits:
Member Insurance Provider Information
Your MA Membership includes $20 million Professional Indemnity and $20 million Public Liability Insurance bundled into the cost of your membership (Student and Affiliate memberships excluded). All practising MA members will no longer need to shop around for insurance cover as your professional insurance requirements will be part of your membership, saving hundreds of dollars per year. MA are working with Guild Insurance through Focus Insurance Brokers having provided trusted insurance solutions to many allied health professions and professional associations.
As a member benefit, the MA insurance for members has extensive coverage including:
Pregnancy massage, subject to the following:
- No body massage or body treatments in the 1st trimester;
- Only therapists specifically trained in pregnancy massage can perform a massage that is light to medium application avoiding the tummy area in the 2nd or 3rd trimester;
- No essential oils to be used at all;
- No heat usage or body wraps to be used; and,
- The client should fill out a card on each visit to check there are no pre-existing conditions etc.
These conditions are in addition to the minimum requirement that only practitioners who have successfully completed the Pre-Natal Education for Manual Therapists course will be considered.
Pilates: although members adequately qualified in Pilates could request to be added to the policy, we were previously limited by an imposed cap of 20 members before then having to forward on additional fees. This cap has now been removed and all MA members that can provide their certificate of completion for any nationally recognised Pilates training (minimum 10721NAT) will be covered;
Exercise Prescription: As an MA member, your insurance will cover you for providing small group exercise (4-6) prescription. This cover is limited purely to activities clearly documented under the evidence-based exercise/rehab instruction section of a myotherapy course. In the event of a claim, the insurer would seek evidence of where the member techniques/instructions were taught in the myotherapy course undertaken by the member. NB: Personal Training is not covered within this policy.
Low Level Laser Therapy: As a number of members are choosing to undertake further training in LLLT, MA has negotiated that this modality is added to the list of those covered within your MA policy. It is important that members choose reputable and adequate training to deliver LLLT in their practice.
