This is a professional Spa training course use of detoxifying and inch loss products, suitable for therapists and for salons where there are no shower facilities available. The products are easy to use and very popular with clients.
During this popular training day you will study- Body Brushing, Body Exfoliation and Body Wrapping using body bandages and full body wrapping using foil blankets.
Wraps work differently depending on which product is added to the skin first, also whether it is a dry wrap and how much insulation is added. We cover both methods in the manual in depth.
No case studies are required - no written exams, certificate given on the day on completion of a successful practical assessment with your tutor.
We have many venues and dates on offer in London and all around the UK including Ireland.
If you feel one day is not enough training, you are able to come back to repeat the course again free of charge. However due to small classes this is rare but available if required.
This course holds between 5 - 13 CPD points (all professional bodies are different please check with the one you are registered with for confirmation of points they award for one day courses)
Our treatments are based on application of the chosen product to the client’s skin and the client being wrapped in insulated wraps to induce warm, relaxation and to stimulate the body’s natural processes.
Examples of types of body wrap bandages and then demonstration on the use of detoxifying and inch loss products and then application of body wrap bandages. Students will then work on each other.
Using the gentle massaging action of a dry natural sisal brush is an easy and inexpensive way of stimulating the circulation and lymphatic system, helping to eliminate toxins from the client’s body. The elimination process of the body can become more effective, not only improving the appearance of their skin but also giving general health benefits - such as improved blood circulation and immune system, improving the appearance of cellulite and reduces water retention leaving the skin firmer and smoother. Dry Body brushing is often done in spas as part of detoxification and slimming treatments.
These are used to remove dead cells from the surface of the skin and stimulates the blood and lymph circulation in the area that has been treated. Exfoliation stimulates the flow of blood to the surface of the skin and the products applied to the skin after exfoliation are easily absorbed in the dermal layers. Fine abrasive materials can be massaged over the surface of the skin to remove the hardened rougher layer of the skin and this will also remove any excess cells that have not been removed by the cleansing.
This is like giving the back a full facial, demonstration will include the use of cleansers, exfoliators, steam, toners, masks, massage and a deep cleansing mask and application of hydrating lotions over the back, students will then work on each other.
The exfoliation should be carried out on a weekly basis to brighten up the complexion and refine the skin texture and can be extended to cover the whole body, offering repeat business.
A popular treatment at most Salons and Spas. There are many types of spa body wrap treatments used for a variety of reasons, helping clients to tone, soften the skin and remove toxins, excess inches and water in the body. Usually made from a combination of natural minerals and herbs. The benefits are noticed right away and offer you repeat business.
A demonstration of the full body wrap using blankets with demonstration of the exfoliation process, followed by body mask, wrapping the body using a thermal foil blanket and towels and then mask removal (without shower)and then body moisturising will be given and students will then work on each other.

Feedback from jane markham
Great tutor, fun friendly and full of information and advice, answer to every question thrown at her and made the day and course a pleasure to be on!
This is the 4th Gateway course I have attended and i'm due to do another next month. The courses are very professional with great manuals to back-up any hands on learning.
Feedback from Aniela Meyer
She was an amazing tutor, very thorough and very knowledgeable. We were amazed on how much work we managed to get through and came away with a mountain of helpful hints and ideas on how to implement the things that we had learned within our salon environment. A lovely person who made the course fun and we enjoyed the day at her premises. I am booked for a manicure and pedicure course and I look forward to here tutoring again. many thanks
Feedback from Tammy Marr
I found the website to be excellent, its nice to have all the relevant information at your fingertips, and it was easy to navigate.
This was my first course in a bid to become self employed, and I was extremely nervous about my lack of experience in the sector. My initial reasoning behind choosing Gateway Workshops was the value for money, the body wraps, body brushing and exfoliation diploma course seemed to cover more than other similar but more expensive courses. As soon as I booked on, I received an email explaining everything I needed to know about the company and my course and tutor, I never felt I had to look for extra information at any point which was reassuring. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised at how much we were actually taught in a day, it was well designed for students to get the most out of the course without being overwhelmed. I feel confident in the skills I've learned as well as the theory behind it, and will definitely be a returning customer.
Excellent tutor! I was very nervous when I arrived but she put me at ease immediately before the class started. She explained the theory well in a way that got a lot of information across but at no point seemed boring. During the practicals she was supportive and encouraging to all of us. I will definitely be looking into courses run by her in the future.
