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!

What do therapists who have trained with us use this course for?

Once you have attended our Detox and Cellulite reduction course, you will be able to use these techniques to adapt to your client's individual needs  its a perfect treatment to promote in the summer and also post holiday festivities.

We have found that therapists love this course as it offers the skills and techniques that they can add to their existing treatment portfolio.
