This versatile course will open many other doors for beauty therapists as, on completion, you will be able to attend more specific eye courses such as Mylash professional and Mybrows. The eye treatments course is ideal for beginners or beauty professionals hoping to expand their current offering.
Manicure and pedicure
The Ellisons Academy offer a manicure course and a pedicure course, both perfect for those starting out in the nail industry. The manicure course covers the anatomy of the hand and arm, as well as the growth of the nail. Students will also learn about the products and tools needed to perform a classic manicure and will be taught essential techniques such as filing, exfoliation, cuticle treatment, polish application and hand and arm massage. Similar to the manicure course, the pedicure course also covers the anatomy of the foot and lower leg, alongside the growth of the toe nail. It also provides students with the ability to file, treat cuticles, remove hard skin, exfoliate the skin and perform a foot and leg massage. Once completed, these courses allow you to offer manicure or pedicure treatments. Completion of the manicure course will allow you to venture onto courses such as the popular CND™Shellac™ course, a profitable course that will make a great addition to any business.
Facials are a popular service offered in both spas and salons and are also a great option for mobile therapists. During the Facial skincare course, you will gain an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the skin, face, head and shoulder girdle. As well as learning how to recognise skin diseases and disorders, you will learn how to consult, plan and carry out a facial treatment to the highest standard. Techniques covered include cleansing, toning, skin diagnosis, exfoliation, massage, mask application, eye treatments and moisturising. Although a great skill to have in itself, the Facial skincare course will also allow you to go on and complete the Advanced facial peeling course, allowing you to further expand your treatment menu and skillset.
The extensive Body massage course includes two full days of practical tuition and assessment, as well as 30 hours of e-learning and the learning of case studies. A great option for mobile therapists, as well as those hoping to begin a career in a spa or salon, massage is a great skill to adopt and will allow you to further your treatment offering with other specific services such as Bamboo massage and Thai style massage. During the course, students will learn about the anatomy and physiology of the body and will also learn the different massage techniques. Once completed, you will be able to offer body massage within your business, a popular service that is great to de-stress muscles and tension and relieve stress in general.
