Learn What to Expect
Practice makes perfect! Estheticians and Massage Therapists work in a wide variety of environments such as day spas, resorts, med-spas, and wellness centers. Having the opportunity to treat clients in our student spa is an invaluable part of our student’s education. Future Estheticians get to experience performing many types of treatments like luxurious European facials and body treatments, 8+ different chemical peels, assisting a plastic surgeon in injections and laser treatments and more. Our Future Massage Therapists experience many massage modalities such as Swedish, trigger point, medi-cupping, herbal wraps and rehabilitative treatments for athletes. Having clients from the public receive treatments from our students is an important part of the education process. We appreciate your participation and always encourage feedback so they can perfect their skills!
When you enter our student spa, you will experience a serene, comfortable, and clean environment. Guests check in with our Student Spa Coordinators, fill out a short form and are seated in our reception area. Your service provider will greet you and walk you to the treatment room where they will do a consultation to find out your needs. All treatments are customized to the guest’s needs so please don’t hesitate to communicate specific requests. Our students are trained in professional modesty draping throughout the service. Once you are comfortable you can just relax and enjoy your treatment.
Our students are trained in all modalities they offer in the spa. Not only do they receive theory instruction, they also perform hands-on practice. They must pass supervised assessments prior to taking any clients. Because of our high expectations, you can be assured that you will receive quality professional treatments at a fraction of normal pricing.
