The global trend for wellness means that clients are becoming more in tune with the link between inner health and outer beauty, and look for the holistic benefits of spa treatments to provide them with a glowing, healthy appearance. Spa treatments cover massage services, water treatments using hydro equipment (such as flotation tanks, safe operation of sauna and steam facilities, invigorating weight loss treatments and relaxing shower treatments). Students will also discover how to apply body wraps, scrubs and masks and the benefits of these.
Study of spa therapies begins at Level 3, and students can enter at this level. Holding beauty qualifications is useful in order to add greater flexibility to potential employers, so progression from Level 2 beauty into spa is a popular route.
