Throughout this four and half month intensive certification, you will learn the art of spa manicures and pedicures, including paraffin, exfoliating scrubs, hot oil, and hot stone massage techniques.

In addition, we will delve into the ancient art of reflexology treatments, focusing on how this alternative healing method can lead to long lasting health for body and mind.

As an added bonus, you will learn how to use the piercing gun accurately and experience the technique yourself with gold plated crystals in a Tiffany setting.
