Spa Treatments Diploma Course - Body Wraps/Brushing/Exfoliation/Back Treatment

Professional one day Spa training course with 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 and a cleansing back treatment (a facial for the back).

Wraps work differently depending on which product is added to the skin first, whether it is a dry wrap and how much insulation is added. We cover both methods in the manual in depth.

Course Information

During this intensive day course, we cover dry body and product based exfoliation, followed by full body moisturisation. We will use body masks and wrapping techniques to turn these treatments into a full body spa wrap.

Slimming wraps are also a popular treatment and we will use measuring techniques and bandage wrapping to enable you to carry out slimming wrap treamtments with your clients.

We also carry out a deep cleansing back treatment (a facial for the back), offering a treatment for this hard to reach and sometimes problematic area. All of this will enable you to offer your clients up to four separate treatments.

You will also take home a detailed manual to support your learning when you finish the course.

Students will work on each other.

The Most Popular Spa Treatments

Body Brushing

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 improving blood circulation and the immune system, improving the appearance of cellulite and reducing water retention, leaving the skin firmer and smoother. Dry Body brushing is often done in spas as part of detoxification and slimming treatments.

Body Exfoliation

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.

Training Will Include Deep Cleansing Back Treatment

This is like giving the back a full facial, demonstration will include the use of cleansers, exfoliators, 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.

Body Wraps

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.

Products Used

Our beauty courses offer the opportunity to train in the technical aspects of application of the materials required for your chosen course, without losing valuable practical time trying to sell you products. We show you how to effectively use the product to achieve fantastic results, that will build your client list and your business.

Our certification is not brand specific. In some cases you insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.

Some of the beauty courses have kits available to buy on the day enabling you to continue to build your confidence and skills immediately upon your return home.

Your tutor will advise you if a kit is available for your course, when confirming your booking. Some kits may require payment in advance and other may be available for purchase on the training day.

A variety of products including, wraps (bandages, plastic and foils) with examples of other products used will be available for students to try out according to their client’s skin type and to enable the student to build a better knowledge of the products available on the market.

You might want to consider our Body exfoliation and tanning application diploma course a wonderfully relaxing spa treatment for those clients that don’t want to stand up and be sprayed and a less messy way of working, less equipment and minimal outlay to the therapist as a follow on to this course.

11 CPD course points has been awarded for this course by the beauty guild, please check with whom you registered with for their guidelines on how many points they award for one day courses as they all differ.

When you book with us you have peace of mind we have a proven track record - established in 1998 and accredited by the top professional bodies.

Certificate - Insurance - Brands

Why is our course so popular?

This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.

Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.

This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.

This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!

Feedback from our Students

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.
