Question for EF massage therapists

Hello EF massage therapists,

I'm moving to Switzerland soon (Vaud) and would like to be able to supplement my income by working as a massage therapist from home. I have been making some calls to find out what red tape is involved but seem to be going around in circles

If anyone who has been through the process before can give me some advice, I'd be very very grateful. The main things I am trying to figure out are:

* Is it worthwhile joining ASCA? (Is that the only way you can get civil liability insurance?)

* What do I need to do to be able to offer health insurance subsidies/rebates (sante suisse told me I don't need one of their numbers, but that I need to deal directly with each health insurer which sounds very time consuming)?

Thanks for any help or tips you can give - it will save me a lot of confusion!

- You need a permit of works
- You suscribe at the AVS oh your city (easy) like independant
- Souscribe at ASCA is the best if you want more customers ( you need diplome and attestation with 150 h massage course and 150 h academic course like anantomy, physiology...).

You can call a school of massage for more information.
