Can a person sue me for causing harm after being given a free massage?

Hi,
I’m currently doing a sports massage course and I need to find more people for my
assessment. I am forced to give massage to people I’m not familiar with as I
don’t have enough friends who would wish one. I’m a bit scared that the people
can sue me if anything bothers them after the massage, claiming it’s my fault.

You are liable for negligence for injuries caused by the free massage. Your liability includes the injured person's medical bills, pain and suffering, an amount in addition to the medical bills and wage loss. Compensation for the medical bills is straight reimbursement. The medical reports determine compensation for pain and suffering. Compensation for wage loss is straight reimbursement.
