Body Treatment Courses
A body scrub is like an exfoliating facial of the body.
It leaves the skin smooth and soft by deep exfoliation and with the use of oils rehydrating the layers of skin.
The abrasive material in the scrub (usually made from natural products such as sea salt or sugar) exfoliates the skin sloughing off dead skin cells and removing stubborn flaky skin.
This course will go through different types of scrubs, where on the body to focus according to skin types
A body wrap is a salon or spa treatment experience that can also be called a body ‘cocoon’.
It begins with exfoliation removing all the dead skin cells. The therapist will use a branded scrub (usually the brand within the salon or spa) to make sure the skins surface is clean and ready for lotions to sink into the skin deeper.
The therapist will then apply oils or body wrap ingredients to the body, depending on the chosen wrap the client will then be wrapped in either plastic wrap, blankets or bandages.
Body Cupping is a technique that has been used for many years, the treatment uses a cup specialised for this treatment on the body. It is left there for a few minutes to create a suction. This will loosen and lift the tissue under the skin to increase the blood flow to the skin and muscles. Cupping has reported benefits of reducing pain and inflammation whilst also helping your clients blood flow.
This treatment can also be used as a form of relaxation with reported effects helping the client’s wellbeing. It is also an alternative to a Deep Tissue Massage for clients who are looking for less hands-on treatment.
A cupping treatment should take a trained professional 15 – 30 minutes as the cups are only left on the body for a few minutes. The clients will continue to see the effects of the treatment for up to two weeks, and once fully qualified you are able to charge between £30-£50 depending on your location and client needs.

Hands and Feet
Reflexology is a holistic healing technique that involves applying different amounts of pressure to precise reflex points on the feet, hands and ears that correspond with all body parts.
People who practice this technique are called reflexologists.
It derives from ancient Chinese belief that qi (meaning vital energy) flows through each person, however it is blocked when a person feels stressed which then leads to an imbalance causing illness.
Reflexology aims to keep the qi flowing throughout the body and unblocking any adhesions to allow the body to stay balanced and free of disease.
