Self Employed Massage Therapist and Reflexologist

Hello, I'm looking for some advice on self employment for massage therapist/reflexologist.
I have qualified in the UK, and currently holding professional insurance in the UK. I eventually would like to start working as a freelance therapist here in Zurich, but I don't know where to start with paperwork.
Any therapists here who could give advice?

Swiss Authorities Online (ch.ch) has a page on becoming self-employed in Switzerland:

Also see this page on foreign nationals setting up a business:

Re: Self Employed Massage Therapist and Reflexologist

Thanks very much!

Is there a UK qualified therapist on the forum who can advise on public liability and professional insurance for holistic therapists? I'm qualified with ITEC and City and Guilds - are these sufficient to get professionally insured? What about room rental permit? Health and safety?

Re: Self Employed Massage Therapist and Reflexologist

Here is a list of Swiss professional associations for "complementary medicine". As a suggestion, you might wish to contact the most relevant association on the list for further assistance:

This is the link to the "Schweizerischer Verband der Berufs-Masseur", which might be relevant. It also include job openings:

Re: Self Employed Massage Therapist and Reflexologist

I got insurance through Basler. There are no specific insurance companies for this like in the UK, you just need to contact general insurers like Basler or AXA or Zürich.
