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 client’s wellbeing. It is also an alternative to a Deep Tissue Massage for clients who are looking for a 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. Client’s will continue to see the effects from 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.
This course will teach you AURICULAR THERAPY (Ears)
The course goes into depth on pressure points and anatomy of the ear that refer to points all over the body
A growing trend in the celebrity world as well as an up and coming sought after holistic treatment
Ear seeds are small seeds that are used to stimulate pressure points in the ear.
They are a type of auriculotherapy, which refers to acupressure or acupuncture focused on the ear, and is an effective method of treating acute and chronic diseases without any side effects.
Thermal Auricular Therapy, also known as Hopi ear candling, is an ancient form of therapy practiced by many people on a worldwide basis. Its name is taken from the Hopi Indians of North Arizona, USA, and means ‘peaceful people’.
Ear candling looks to remove blockages within the ear canal without the need for syringes or solutions but does work better as a preventative, so it is a good idea to have treatments before the ears become to impacted with wax.
This course will teach you the correct way to carry out the treatment with also the correct aftercare
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.
