1. Aromatherapy: Learn the extraction to the application of the oils for therapeutic purposes

All essential oils are antiseptic and have different effects - some regulate metabolic function, some stimulate, whilst some others will soothe irritations and anxieties. Massage is used with the oils to enhance their effectiveness.

Essential oils can be used safely at home for many ailments. This Aromatherapy Certification Course will take you through from the extraction to the application of the oils for therapeutic purposes, as well as cover aromatherapy massage techniques.

Aromatherapy is one of the most widely used therapies and this course will enable you to successfully practice as an aromatherapist.

2. Hot Stone Massage: Learn the concept of massage therapy using stones

The concept of massage therapy using stones has been used in many different cultures for many years. Tribal Healers and Village wise women used rocks from the river beds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water.  By placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging them along the energy points of the body, this would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, and therefore support the healing process.

The placing of the stones is often followed by a holistic massage which proves to result in a deeper and more intense treatment as the heat penetrates the body and relaxes the muscles and the cold stones stimulate the neural pathways and circulatory system.

This 10 lesson hot stone massage course shows the student the history of hot stone massage to the modern day development and use of hot stone massage techniques and associated therapies. The course focuses upon practical massage therapy techniques that can be learned and practised by the student, either as a stand alone therapy in its own right or as part of a practicing holistic therapist’s repertoire of effective techniques.

The course shows the student how hot stone techniques can be incorporated into holistic therapeutic practice which will be of great value to practitioners of both the body working therapies and also of pure holistic treatments.

3. Reflexology: Learn How To Enable The Body To Function Efficiently By Reflexology

Reflexology is one of the fastest growing holistic therapies now gaining worldwide acceptance. It is based on the scientific principle that every organ in the body is reflected in certain reflexes in the feet.

The feet are a microcosm of the human body. By manipulating the reflex areas on the feet, energy congestion in the body is released. Correct stimulation of the feet reflexes, while the client is relaxed, improves the energy flow and the blood supply.

This results in an overall feeling of well-being and this enables the body to function efficiently. Reflexology is a completely safe, natural aid to restoring the body's healthy balance.

4. Massage for Special Needs: Learn and Practice Massage For Special Needs

Massage is now accepted as being one of the finest ways of relieving tension in the human body, however, it is not generally thought of in terms of those with special needs.

The course will not only provide tuition for the able-bodied individual to work with those with either physical or mental special needs, but will also look at the ways that those with special needs can learn and practice massage themselves.

5. Remedial Massage: Develop Skills in Giving Specialized Massage for Specific Ailments

Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of regaining balance within the tissues, improved range of motion, circulation, reduces stress and alleviates pain.

Detailed tuition will be given on how massage affects the various systems of the body, its benefits and how remedial massage differs from relaxation massage.

Your Opportunity:

Provides students with the opportunity to develop their skills in giving specialised massage for specific ailments.

6. Shiatsu: Obtain insightful knowledge about Shiatsu

The Shiatsu Practitioner exerts firm rhythmic pressure to the body using thumbs or fingers on a sequence of points designed to awaken the meridians. Shiatsu incorporates creative use of the whole body and includes stretching and leverage.

Tension is viewed as a stagnation of the bodily flows along the nerves, meridians, lymphatic ducts and blood vessels. Lack of exercise, poor diet, alcohol, drugs and stress all contribute significantly to this stagnation. These physical tensions or blocked emotions lock the homeostatic mechanism of the body, restricting proper functioning. Blockages or distortions can cause either an overflow of energy, "Jitsu" (excess) or an underactive condition "Kyo" (empty).

The pressure points or "tsubos" are reflections of the internal functioning of the body systems, and are used for diagnostic as well as treatment purposes. Treatment focuses not only on relieving pain and discomfort but also on responding to tensions and toxicities in the body before they develop into illnesses.

7. Manicure and Pedicure: Develop A Career In The Beauty Industry

Realising the value of a well-groomed exterior in enhancing self confidence, this avenue of beauty therapy is becoming of great importance to both females and males. The primary aim of this course is to prepare students for good employment prospects in the beauty industry.

The College has a reputation for friendly and approachable staff who will help students who wish to develop a career in beauty. The course is delivered as a home study programme with constant tutor support to assist you to complete your course assignments successfully.

What Are Gel Nails?

Gel nails are fake nails that can be applied to a client’s fingers to closely resemble the natural nail. They are very similar to acrylic nails (liquid & powder); however they tend to be more flexible. Gel nails can be worn, painted and decorated in the same way as acrylic nails. Gel nails are usually applied using a UV light. Generally gel nails will last between 3 – 4 weeks; after this period maintenance and infill procedures will need to be carried out on the client’s extensions to keep them looking natural and well maintained. Our nail technician courses from home will teach you all the techniques you require to be able to carry out these treatments.

The Work of the Nail Technician

The work of a nail technician can be varied and rewarding.

1. Aromatherapy: Learn the extraction to the application of the oils for therapeutic purposes

All essential oils are antiseptic and have different effects - some regulate metabolic function, some stimulate, whilst some others will soothe irritations and anxieties. Massage is used with the oils to enhance their effectiveness.

Essential oils can be used safely at home for many ailments. This Aromatherapy Certification Course will take you through from the extraction to the application of the oils for therapeutic purposes, as well as cover aromatherapy massage techniques.

Aromatherapy is one of the most widely used therapies and this course will enable you to successfully practice as an aromatherapist.

2. Hot Stone Massage: Learn the concept of massage therapy using stones

The concept of massage therapy using stones has been used in many different cultures for many years. Tribal Healers and Village wise women used rocks from the river beds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water.  By placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging them along the energy points of the body, this would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, and therefore support the healing process.

The placing of the stones is often followed by a holistic massage which proves to result in a deeper and more intense treatment as the heat penetrates the body and relaxes the muscles and the cold stones stimulate the neural pathways and circulatory system.

This 10 lesson hot stone massage course shows the student the history of hot stone massage to the modern day development and use of hot stone massage techniques and associated therapies. The course focuses upon practical massage therapy techniques that can be learned and practised by the student, either as a stand alone therapy in its own right or as part of a practicing holistic therapist’s repertoire of effective techniques.

The course shows the student how hot stone techniques can be incorporated into holistic therapeutic practice which will be of great value to practitioners of both the body working therapies and also of pure holistic treatments.

3. Reflexology: Learn How To Enable The Body To Function Efficiently By Reflexology

Reflexology is one of the fastest growing holistic therapies now gaining worldwide acceptance. It is based on the scientific principle that every organ in the body is reflected in certain reflexes in the feet.

The feet are a microcosm of the human body. By manipulating the reflex areas on the feet, energy congestion in the body is released. Correct stimulation of the feet reflexes, while the client is relaxed, improves the energy flow and the blood supply.

This results in an overall feeling of well-being and this enables the body to function efficiently. Reflexology is a completely safe, natural aid to restoring the body's healthy balance.

4. Massage for Special Needs: Learn and Practice Massage For Special Needs

Massage is now accepted as being one of the finest ways of relieving tension in the human body, however, it is not generally thought of in terms of those with special needs.

The course will not only provide tuition for the able-bodied individual to work with those with either physical or mental special needs, but will also look at the ways that those with special needs can learn and practice massage themselves.

5. Remedial Massage: Develop Skills in Giving Specialized Massage for Specific Ailments

Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of regaining balance within the tissues, improved range of motion, circulation, reduces stress and alleviates pain.

Detailed tuition will be given on how massage affects the various systems of the body, its benefits and how remedial massage differs from relaxation massage.

Your Opportunity:

Provides students with the opportunity to develop their skills in giving specialised massage for specific ailments.

6. Shiatsu: Obtain insightful knowledge about Shiatsu

The Shiatsu Practitioner exerts firm rhythmic pressure to the body using thumbs or fingers on a sequence of points designed to awaken the meridians. Shiatsu incorporates creative use of the whole body and includes stretching and leverage.

Tension is viewed as a stagnation of the bodily flows along the nerves, meridians, lymphatic ducts and blood vessels. Lack of exercise, poor diet, alcohol, drugs and stress all contribute significantly to this stagnation. These physical tensions or blocked emotions lock the homeostatic mechanism of the body, restricting proper functioning. Blockages or distortions can cause either an overflow of energy, "Jitsu" (excess) or an underactive condition "Kyo" (empty).

The pressure points or "tsubos" are reflections of the internal functioning of the body systems, and are used for diagnostic as well as treatment purposes. Treatment focuses not only on relieving pain and discomfort but also on responding to tensions and toxicities in the body before they develop into illnesses.

7. Manicure and Pedicure: Develop A Career In The Beauty Industry

Realising the value of a well-groomed exterior in enhancing self confidence, this avenue of beauty therapy is becoming of great importance to both females and males. The primary aim of this course is to prepare students for good employment prospects in the beauty industry.

The College has a reputation for friendly and approachable staff who will help students who wish to develop a career in beauty. The course is delivered as a home study programme with constant tutor support to assist you to complete your course assignments successfully.

What Are Gel Nails?

Gel nails are fake nails that can be applied to a client’s fingers to closely resemble the natural nail. They are very similar to acrylic nails (liquid & powder); however they tend to be more flexible. Gel nails can be worn, painted and decorated in the same way as acrylic nails. Gel nails are usually applied using a UV light. Generally gel nails will last between 3 – 4 weeks; after this period maintenance and infill procedures will need to be carried out on the client’s extensions to keep them looking natural and well maintained. Our nail technician courses from home will teach you all the techniques you require to be able to carry out these treatments.

The Work of the Nail Technician

The work of a nail technician can be varied and rewarding.
