Course Description
This Esthetics / Spa Therapy course teaches the fundamentals of Esthetics / Spa Therapy. Students will learn from the Standard Esthetics Fundamentals, The Day Spa Techniques and online videos to perform Esthetic and Spa Therapy services. This includes Skin Care Analysis, Facial Treatments, Facial Massage, Facial Machines, Hair Removal and Make Up.

Students will also learn practical applications in: Water and Water Therapies (Uses, Bathing), Underwater Massage, Showers, Touch and Massage, Aromatherapy, Body Treatments, Exfoliation, Mud Treatments, Seaweed Treatments, Spot Treatments and Advanced Treatments.

Estheticians often perform procedures and treatments that focus not only on the body, but on the mind and spirit as well – this includes hot stone massage, mud baths, and aromatherapy. These are popular additions to the repertoire of many estheticians and fall into our Spa Therapy category. This option requires additional training: however, combining our Esthetics program with our Spa Therapy program will allow you to offer the absolute best possible service to your clients.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive an Esthetics Diploma, a Spa Therapy Diploma, as well as your stamped/sealed official transcripts.

Books and kits are not included in this course, but we have worked in conjunction with Nailtechstore.ca to carefully and specifically design kits customized to this course. Once enrolled you will be given a link to order.

“Esthetics” is actually a term used to describe a philosophical approach to appreciating things of beauty, reverence and artistry. It’s quite fitting, then, that the practice of skin beautification in the health and wellness industry is also referred to as esthetics- sometimes even going by its original spelling, “aesthetics.”

Estheticians are skincare specialists responsible for performing a variety of facial treatments designed to increase, improve, or maintain the health and appearance of the skin.

Estheticians are trained in skin wellness, most often helping their clients combat complexion problems through a number of therapies and practices. In addition to engaging in therapies that are designed to improve the tone, texture, color, and youthfulness of the skin of the face and neck, estheticians may perform a wide range of other body services such as make up and hair removal.

Waxing, threading, or using depilatories to remove unwanted hair is a common practice for estheticians, as is the application of makeup.

Spa Therapy

Spa treatments are the services that a spa provides. The most popular spa treatment by far, is massage. It has been around for thousands of years and has a number of health benefits.

Other popular spa treatments include body treatments like salt glows and body wraps. Some spas, usually have signature services that might combine several different treatments: a body scrub followed by a massage and a mini-facial, for instance. The two most popular massages are Swedish massage and deep tissue massage. Swedish massage typically covers the whole body with firm strokes but without much deep, focused work. Deep tissue massage will use firmer pressure and also include focused work on areas that are especially tight. Another massage offering on most menus is an aromatherapy massage, which uses essential oils to achieve different purposes, most commonly relaxation.

The basic body scrub exfoliates your outermost, dead skin cells with a salt scrub (rougher), a sugar scrub (gentler) or some other exfoliant, like coffee grounds, fruit enzymes or a bristle brush or gloves that gently loosen the inter-cellular bonds. A body scrub can be a stand-alone treatment, but it is often combined with a body wrap that is either hydrating (adding moisture to the skin) or detoxifying (anything with clay, mud or seaweed).

Once your client has been exfoliated they can choose a body wrap, or a massage. If they have enough time and want an amazing treatments choose all three.
