Why You Should Never Be Afraid of Change

Graphic containing the quote 'nothing changes if nothing changes.'

Change can be scary. It can stir up self-doubt and make us question everything. But often, the alternative to changing things is to stay as we are. Stale, stuck, and uninspired. When you have the courage to make changes in your life, amazing things can happen. Here’s why you should never be afraid of change.

It Helps You See Life Differently

When you wake up in the morning and think about the day ahead, how do you feel? Are you excited to get up and make a difference or are you filled with a feeling of dread? Making positive changes in your life can help you see things differently. Imagine challenging yourself to train in a new treatment, or deciding that you want to completely pivot and change the direction of your business. You’ll feel inspired and enthusiastic, and that makes you look at life through completely different eyes.

Change Opens Your Mind

If you’ve been in the industry for a long time, you might think ‘there’s nothing you can tell me.’ I want to tell you that you’re wrong. There’s always something to learn and training in something completely new like Helenergy can open your mind to new possibilities.

It Helps You Keep Moving Forward

There’s nothing worse than feeling stuck. Embracing change can make you vulnerable. But if you try new things and see that nothing bad happens, it will motivate you to keep pushing on and moving forward in life.

Change Reminds You of How Resilient You Are

Changing direction in business or life can feel terrifying, but when you go through change and you thrive, it can remind you about how resilient and capable you are.

Amazing Things Can Happen When You Embrace Change

Often, no matter how stuck or down in the dumps we feel about how things are, our mind tells us that change is something to be scared of. ‘What if it doesn’t work out?’ it tells us. I say what if it does? It’s natural to be wary of change, but what if it ends up being the best thing you’ve ever done? There’s only one way to find out.

Are You Ready to Embrace Change and Change Lives?

Do you feel you are here for something more? Do your days not fill you with joy as they should? Do you love to help people not only with treatments, but in their whole life?

Training to be a Helenergy Therapist and Healing Mentor is a career that will light you up from the inside out. I know because I have done it.

I held an in-person Helenergy Horizons event recently and if you didn’t attend you really missed out.

Train as a Helenergy Therapist and you’ll get award-winning training and products that give you and your clients the chance to soar in life.

You’ll have my complete support and business mentoring once you are trained, you will not be left on your own.

I will be holding another in-person event in a few months’ time but in the meantime, if you want to know about Helenergy and how you can change lives, book a free discovery call via my Calendly link.

You’re Invited to An Exclusive Helenergy Event

Stephanie Holland, Helenergy Creator and healing mentor

As therapists, we’re privileged that our clients confide in us. What do yours say? Do they tell you they are anxious, depressed, or feeling a bit lost in life? Do they complain of just not feeling good, mentally and physically? Or maybe it’s you who feels that way?

Either way, there’s a need now for something that makes people feel good from the inside out. Something that makes them feel lighter, brighter, and like they enjoy life again.

That’s why I created Helenergy.

If you’ve been following me on social media or reading my monthly newsletters, you’ll know that Helenergy is a beautiful unique energetic healing modality that I created during the lockdowns. People were stressed, anxious, lost, and wanted to change their lives for the better, and I saw a need for something that would help people on a far deeper level.

Helenergy: A Holistic Approach to Healing Mind, Body, and Soul

Since I trained in energetic healing two decades ago, I’ve been amazed at how powerful it can be to restore the body and mind. I trained in Reiki, but Helenergy is far more than that; it’s a holistic and personalised approach to improving wellbeing, body and soul.

Helenergy is a combination of energetic healing, treatments, daily rituals, and gorgeous products. I spent the lockdowns creating the brand and pulling all the pieces together. I sourced lovely organic products. I created unique treatment experiences like the Helenergy Facial Experience that’s combined with energy healing to offer a treatment like no other. I created a Helenergy Journal to help empower people to take charge of their own wellbeing. And here’s the biggie; I put together some accredited training for therapists.

You’re Invited to an Exclusive In-Person Event

When I created Helenergy, I knew that I wanted to train a network of Helenergy Therapists to take this beautiful modality far and wide. If you’re feeling a bit lost at the moment or don’t know which way to take your career, maybe reading this is the sign you were waiting for.

Imagine going into work every day knowing that you were truly making a difference to your clients’ wellbeing. That you helped them break free of that grief, anxiety, and fear…whatever it is that’s weighing them down. Imagine how that would enhance your own life.

After a few years of online events, I wanted to bring Helenergy to you in person. On Monday 27th June, I’m planning to hold a lovely Helenergy Horizons event from 6-8pm. I’d love the chance to meet with you and tell you all about Helenergy and how it could transform your life.

On the day, I’ll talk about the different elements of Helenergy, and there’ll be a chance for you to try the gorgeous product range I created.

If you’re a therapist who wants to find out more about the accredited Helenergy Therapist/Healing Mentor training, there’ll be the chance to do that too. Oh yes, and there’ll be cake!

Helenergy Event Details

The event will be held on Monday 27th June at 6pm-8pm at my training room at Ashington Workspace, Ashington, Ne63 9jz. It’s super easy to get to and there is plenty of free on-site parking.

There is a small fee of £5 to attend the event, but that will be redeemable against a Helenergy Product you can take home.

Are you ready to find out how Helenergy can help you live a fulfilling life, full of purpose?

Who Can Offer Reflexology?

Reflexology is a gorgeous relaxing treatment that can really improve a client’s wellbeing. You might have thought about training in it, but are you still on the fence? Not sure if it’s for you? Well here’s the good news, there are so many reasons why therapists choose to offer reflexology, and you can too!

The Benefits of Training in Reflexology

Have you thought about adding reflexology to your treatment menu, or do you want to start a completely standalone reflexology business? Here are the benefits of training in reflexology.

You Can Make Use of Your Existing Skills

Are you a good listener? Have you worked in a caring profession? Or are you good at taking notes and love to learn new things? You can transfer all of these skills to a reflexology business.

It Gives You Job Flexibility

Want to be your own boss and rent a room or go mobile? Or do you want a salaried job in a spa that offers holistic treatments? Training in reflexology can give you the flexibility to set your own hours and choose how you want your career to work for you.

You Can Take Your Life in a Completely New Direction

So many of us dream about leaving the grind behind and doing something new. Well training in reflexology could give you that chance to do something rewarding that genuinely makes others feel good.

Your World Will be Your Oyster

Whether you want a second income stream, or you want to train in reflexology then build on that, there’ll be nothing stopping you.

It Reduces Stress for Clients (and For You!)

You get to nurture and care for your clients and the relaxing environment you create will also benefit you. You’ll feel your clients’ stress and anxiety drop away and in turn, you’ll feel less stressed too.

Reflexology Helps You Work with Clients on a Deeper Level

Often, the focus for beauty therapists is making clients feel good, and that’s an amazing thing. But when you offer reflexology, you get to work with them on a deeper level, helping them feel good from the inside out. This creates a very different kind of relationship. When clients realise how amazing they feel, they’ll want to come back time and time again.

Want to Offer Reflexology?

Anyone can offer reflexology and there are so many benefits of training in it.

I have set two dates for reflexology training at the academy; 23rd May or 15th August.

These dates get booked up very quickly so if you are on the fence about if you should train, ask yourself how your life (and your clients’ lives) could flourish by offering this service.

There are many ways you can make a reflexology business work. You can rent a room or go mobile. Or if you are already in the industry, it will soon become one of your most popular treatments that clients will always return for.

Want a Truly Heart and Soul-Led Career?

Do you live to work to do work you love, or do you work to live?

Do you sometimes wish that you could do something more meaningful that brings you joy, instead of just doing it to pay the bills?

Are you excited to get up and make a difference each day, or does the sound of your alarm fill you with dread?

If you answered yes to all of the latter options, it probably means you’re doing a job, not something that’s your ultimate purpose.

If you answered yes to all of the first options, congratulations, you’ve discovered your heart and soul-led career!

What is the Difference Between a Job and a Heart and Soul-Led Career?

A job is what you do to make a living. You turn up for work, but you might have one eye on the clock and the other on the weekend.

I’m not saying that a job is something you can’t enjoy. Society might tell you that ‘you only work on a checkout,’ but you may genuinely enjoy chatting to people as you serve them, knowing that it brightens up their day.

But a heart and soul-led career is something different altogether. Finding your true purpose in life is not an easy path, but when you do, it excites you, you want to create something meaningful, and you want to share it with the world.

Never underestimate the power of doing work every day that aligns with your heart and soul. It brings meaning and fulfilment to your life like nothing else.

I have always been a spiritual person, and while I adore teaching beauty at the academy, I’ve always felt called to something more. That something more arrived as the result of the devastating grief I went through when I lost my beautiful mam, Helen. I felt lost and broken for a long time, but my energy connected with hers and the rest as they say, is history.

I created Helenergy to be her legacy and mine, and I know that this wonderful healing modality will be a huge gift to everyone who trains in it and their clients.

Finding a heart and soul-led career definitely wasn’t easy for me, but I’m finally here, where I’m supposed to be. Though setbacks in life can be frustrating, sometimes it’s God, or the universe, or whatever you believe in, nudging you onto another path, the right one. I was guided onto the right path and you can be too.

Helenergy Therapist Training: Are you Ready for a Heart and Soul-Led Career?

How would it feel to wake up every day knowing that you’re transforming people’s lives, as well as your own? That you’re helping people feel good from the inside out? That you’re making the world a better place all while making a living and doing something you love?

Now you can.

If you really want to serve others from your heart and soul;

If you’re an empath who feels deeply for others;

If you’re feeling a little lost and your career is feeling a bit lacklustre;

Helenergy Therapist training is perfect for you.

It is way more than training to do healing, it is way more than training to do a facial, you are training to transform the lives of others while transforming your own life too!

You’ll not just be a Helenergy Therapist but a Healing Mentor too.

Want to know more about how to get started in this life-changing, heart and soul-led career?

You can book a FREE 30 minute discovery call to find out more;

Make this the year you finally make the move towards what’s meant for you.

Train as a Helenergy Therapist and Start Transforming Lives

How many courses have you done where you can genuinely say that it’s helped you transform your clients’ lives? Helenergy Therapist training is training like you’ve never seen before. Here’s how it can help you change your clients’ lives, and yours, for the better.

How Helenergy Was Born

Being a therapist is about more than making clients look good on the outside, it’s about making them feel good on the inside. It’s about providing treatments that take care of their mind, body, and soul.

Helenergy Healing was a modality I created after experiencing the devastating loss of my mother, Helen.  I felt stuck, anxious, lost, and totally disconnected to myself and my life for a long time. I threw myself in to work at the Academy, but I just couldn’t get rid of that feeling of being completely lost.

I had to dig really deep to try and come to terms with the loss and the grief, and I had to do this alone. I knew I had to find some way just to feel better and get out of that seemingly bottomless pit I found myself in. I fought so hard to try and feel good each day and I did this by doing small daily rituals.

Around 18 months after I lost my mam, I had a spiritual awakening-I know how that sounds, but bear with me- her energy connected with mine and I finally realised why I was here; to help people heal. People who felt just like I did.

Creating Helenergy Therapist Training

After that experience, I started working on creating healing programmes that would help transform clients’ lives. I also wanted to be able to train a network of Helenergy Therapists who could transform clients’ lives as well as their own. The dream is for Helenergy to help as many people as possible.

Who is Helenergy Therapist Training Perfect For?

Helenergy Therapist training is perfect for the Empaths and sensitive souls who think and feel deeply for others. It’s also for those of you who might feel a little lost in your own life and the direction of your career, and anyone who really wants to serve others from your heart and soul and live a life of abundance.

Introducing The Helenergy Facial Experience Course

The first course on offer will be the Helenergy Facial Experience Course. I’ve used my two decades of industry experience and all of my skills to bring you this wonderful facial training that is like no other. The training will give you the tools to help clients feel better inside and out, so they’ll keep coming back. This is no ‘hi and bye’ treatment; your clients will feel the benefits long after they have left your treatment room.

What’s Included in the Training?

The Helenergy Facial Experience Course is delivered over 2.5 hours. You will be trained in Helenergy itself which is a gentle healing energetic flow that you will transfer to your clients. As well as that, you’ll be taught how to perform a beautiful facial technique and ritual.

You also get EXCLUSIVE use of the Helenergy Facial Products to use during the treatments and to retail.

In addition to the treatment training, you will be given daily and rituals and techniques to pass on to your clients. This is an essential part of helping them heal and improving their wellbeing in between appointments.

I will also be here as your Business Mentor for the first six months after training to help you build an amazing career as a Helenergy Therapist.

Are there any Prerequisites to Helenergy Therapist Training?

There is a pre-exquisite required to train in Helenergy because it is important that you learn the fundamentals of Helenergy and feel amazing every day of your own life. I always say that you can’t give your clients the best if you aren’t feeling good yourself.

You are required to complete the ‘Elevate Your Energy’ programme before any training can take place. It’s a way of elevating your own life and knowing exactly how Helenergy will work for your clients.

Want to Find Out More?

My new Helenergy Website will be launching soon and there’ll be so much more info on there. But I do understand that you might have many questions and will want to chat about potential training…

So, I will be hosting a free event at some point to talk about the Helenergy Therapist opportunity. Keep an eye out for updates on that.

There is also an option to reach out to me by booking a free 30-minute discovery call via this link:

https://calendly.com/helenergy/30min?month=2022-02

I already have many calls booked in with potential Therapists wanting to train so be quick and get yourself an appointment so I can share this amazing and exclusive opportunity with you.

Deciding to train to be a Helenergy Therapist takes a one of a kind person, training is totally exclusive and is not available anywhere else in the world.

I can’t wait for you to join me in offering something so unique, beautiful, and special to clients!

The Helenergy Facial Experience: A Gentle Approach to Holistic Healing

As therapists, we are so privileged to be able to help clients improve their wellbeing. It’s not just about looking good on the outside, clients want to feel good on the inside too. After the last few years, there’s a definite need for treatments that help treat the client as a whole. Introducing the Helenergy Facial Experience, a gentle, unique approach to holistic healing.

Not Just a Facial

A great facial has so many benefits. Glowing skin, relaxation, and reduced muscle tension to name just a few. But have you ever experienced a facial that’s combined with healing energy treatment that treats the client as whole?

That’s the Helenergy Facial Experience in a nutshell and it’s unlike anything you or your clients will ever have experienced.

If you train as a Helenergy Therapist, you’ll use facial techniques, beautiful bespoke vegan products, and a gentle healing energy flow to help clients feel good, inside and out.

What Makes the Helenergy Facial Experience different?

It treats the client as a whole. As part of the experience, they receive a Helenergy 7-Day Journal. In the journal, there is space to write how they are feeling every day as well as small daily rituals to improve their wellbeing and them move forward in life.

They also get bespoke Helenergy product recommendations so they can carry on experiencing the benefits at home. This is what it’s all about; making them feel supported long after they have left the treatment room.

Another thing clients will love is that as part of the Helenergy Facial Experience, they’ll receive a gorgeous programmed rose quartz pendant that they can carry with them every day.

Who’s it For?

Absolutely anyone can benefit from the Helenergy Facial Experience, especially people who just want to feel better and lighter every day. People who feel stuck and want to move forward in life. People who are dealing with stress or other negative emotions they just can’t shake off.

Why Should I Train as a Helenergy Therapist?

As a Helenergy Therapist, you will be get to help your client before, during, and after their Helenergy experience. How many times does a client have a treatment and the effects of that treatment only last for a day or two afterwards? As a Helenergy Therapist, you will have the privilege of impacting on your client’s wellbeing in a way that no other therapist does.

When you decide to become a Helenergy Therapist, you will be starting on a journey to being able to offer a beautiful healing modality that is so needed in people’s lives right now.

It’s a completely authentic treatment that you’ll be delivering from your heart and soul. You won’t be just ‘doing facials’, you’ll be transforming lives.

For more information on how to train as a Helenergy Therapist, contact me on 07825 337342 or via the Helenergy Facebook page. I can’t wait to help you get started on this beautiful journey.

How to Attract Clients to Your Beauty Business in January

After 2020, all of us beauty business owners were looking forward to a better year. But it’s been a bit topsy turvy, hasn’t it? For many beauty therapists, business still isn’t consistent as many clients still feel nervous about Covid.

Not only that, lockdown has had a huge impact on what treatments clients are deciding to have and what they have found they can do without. Clients are also going longer between appointments which can have a negative impact on your business.

And then there’s January. If your business is already quiet, you’ll be worried that it will die a slow death as bad weather and a lack of cash after Christmas means that clients are more reluctant to book treatments.  

So how can you beat the slump and attract clients to your beauty business in January?

Start marketing now

If you’re planning on running any new year offers, get them out there now so clients know about them. Start marketing early to attract clients to your beauty business in January.

Remember too that people are looking for gifts and stocking fillers at this time of year, so if you sell products, make sure you create a gorgeous display. Product sales might not completely make up for a slow down in your business, but every little helps.

Don’t panic and start slashing prices

You can attract clients to your beauty business in January without harming your profits. It can be tempting to start offering crazy discounts to get people through the door. However, remember that you need to earn a level of income that reflects your skills, training, and experience.

Instead of just discounting treatments across the board, why now offer deals on the days when you are usually quieter like midweek?

Want to attract clients to your beauty business in January? Get inside of their heads!

Come the new year, everyone’s in the ‘new year, new me’ mindset, so you need to capitalise on that. Now more than ever, clients want to feel relaxed and recharged. It’s not just about how they look any more.

January is cold and dark, and everyone feels a bit ‘meh’ after Christmas, so it’s the perfect time to push your wellbeing treatments. Think about offering wellbeing or pamper packages. Combine a manicure and a pedicure (with heated mitts and booties, of course). Offer a hot stone massage with a mini facial. The possibilities are endless. Brainstorm some ways that you can make your clients feel like new when they walk out of your salon.

How will you attract clients to your beauty business in January?

Will it be putting on an irresistible midweek promotion? Maybe you’ve come up with the perfect pamper package that will help people escape the January blues. Or maybe you’ve decided that you’ll finally train in that niche treatment that will make you stand out from the competition. The new year is almost here and it’s never too soon to start boosting your business for 2022.

Train with us!

If you’re looking to kickstart your beauty career, you’ve come to the right place.

All our courses are taught in small groups which makes for a relaxing learning environment where you’ll get all of the attention you need. Steph, our academy director and trainer, has over 20 years’ experience in the industry so when you book a course with us, you’ll be perfectly prepared to be the most successful therapist that you can be.

For more information on any of our courses, call Steph on 07825337342.

Why Crystal Healing Should be the Next Course on Your List

A variety of healing crystals lying on top of a purple pouch.

The focus of beauty therapy is changing. No longer do clients only want to see a therapist to look good, they want to feel good too. Holistic treatments that promote healing on the inside are booming for that reason. In this blog, I want to look at crystal healing training. I’m so excited to say I’ll be offering it at the academy going forward.

But what is crystal healing, how does it work, and what are the benefits for clients? Read on to find out.

What is crystal healing?

Crystal healing is a holistic and natural therapy that helps to unblock, focus, and direct energy. Everything is energy. We are energy. When our energy becomes blocked, ‘stuck,’ or off-balance, we become physically or emotionally unwell.

If you’re interested in crystals, you probably know that every crystal has its own properties and energies, and so as a therapist, you can use a specific crystal to help a client with a particular problem. A little more on that later.

What does a crystal healing session look like?

As a crystal healing therapist, you would do an in-depth consultation with your client. This is essential, because you need to look at all the different aspects of your client’s wellbeing. This is what holistic treatments are all about.

After you have completed crystal healing training, you will know which crystal(s) to use and how to position them to help your client with their particular concern.

Your client will be fully-clothed and lying down comfortably, then you will place the crystals on and around their body. You will encourage your client to breathe deeply and relax.

They may tell you that they feel a warm or tingly sensation, or they may feel nothing, it will vary between clients.

At the end of the session, you will remove the crystals and encourage your client to become aware of bodily sensations and their surroundings again. They will probably be deeply relaxed and should be eased back into awareness. Some clients might report that they feel better after just one session while for some, it will take a few sessions to feel the effects.

The benefits of crystal healing

Crystal healing is a complementary treatment that can be used alongside standard medical treatments that your client might be getting. It’s deeply relaxing and has no negative side-effects. Commonly reported benefits include reduced stress and anxiety, reduced physical pain, and better sleep. When it comes to emotional health, crystal therapy can bring clarity and a sense of inner peace.

What are some of the most commonly used crystals?

There are hundreds of different crystals, each with their own distinct properties and power. For example:

Clear quartz: As you might have guessed from the name, this is a clear crystal. It’s usually used for focusing energy and improving clarity.

Rose quartz: One of the best-known crystals, and one of my favourites!. This soft pink stone promotes self-love.

Amethyst: Amethyst is purple and it’s known for promoting restful sleep.

Black Onyx: This black crystal is used for protection as it’s thought to protect against negative energy.

How to get the best out of crystal healing

Your clients (and you!) can reap the benefits of crystals in between healing sessions. Advise clients to keep crystals in places that will benefit them. Ask them to carry a crystal in their handbag or wear one in a piece of jewellery. If your client is struggling with sleep, keeping an amethyst near their bed could help.

Encourage them to meditate and hold onto a crystal during the session. Crystals are a great way to enhance the effects of any energy work they might already be doing, like Helenergy Healing for example.

Crystals are not a magic wand

Clients need to understand that they should not expect to be ‘healed’ after one crystal healing session. It’s important that they take an active role in their own healing journey and use crystal healing as a gentle tool to help them get there.

Have you thought about offering crystal healing to your clients?

Do you want to offer a treatment that will really improve your client’s inner wellbeing? Do you want to train in a therapy that will help them not just look good on the outside, but feel good on the inside? Are holistic therapies your thing?

Crystal healing training should be the next course on your list. This is a full-accredited course and it’s suitable for complete beginners.

The first course date is Sunday 23rd January, 10.30am- 3pm, and I’m offering it at the amazing introductory price of £180.00. Spaces are limited, so get in touch quick to secure your place. Drop me a line at steph@essentialbeautyacademy.co.uk to book.

Making a Difference: How Oncology Massage Benefits You and Your Clients

If you’ve trained at the Academy before, or you follow us on social media, you’ll know that we are the only training provider in the north east that offers Oncology Massage training.

Training in Oncology Massage is not only great for your business, it has plenty of other benefits for you and your potential clients.

How Oncology Massage benefits you and your clients

It helps you to work safely with people who have cancer

You’ve probably always been told that cancer is a contraindication to massage and that your insurance won’t cover you for working with clients with cancer. It’s true that you should not work directly on the site of the cancer or work on an area where there is lymphoedema (swelling that can be caused by the disease itself or treatments). However, Oncology Massage training can help you learn about cancer, different treatments and their effects, and safe massage techniques to use.

You can meet the physical and emotional needs of your clients

Being told that you have cancer can be devastating and traumatic. The effects of the illness and the side effects of treatment can leave people feeling anxious, depleted, and in pain. We all know that there are lots of physical benefits to massage. For example, in people with cancer, massage can help to relieve pain and nausea, but the emotional benefits can be even more valuable.

Training in Oncology Massage will enable you to provide some respite to people who need it most. Imagine being able to help someone relax and feel good when they are going through one of the most difficult times in their lives.

Oncology massage training will help you work confidently

It might seem scary, to start working with a client group that you’ve always been told you can’t work with. But our Oncology Massage will give you the skills and knowledge you need to confidently work with clients who have cancer, or who’ve had a previous diagnosis.

Making a difference is always worth it

Research* has found that Oncology Massage improves quality of life for cancer patients. The benefits for patients include better relaxation, sleep, and immune function as well as relief from anxiety, pain, fatigue, and nausea.

As an Oncology Massage therapist, you’ll be able to meet people wherever they are in their journey and offer them a beautiful specialist massage treatment that will comfort and support them.

Do you want to make a difference?

Our next Oncology Massage course is running on Wednesday 17th November. Spaces are limited, so get in quick to book and start offering this beautiful treatment that makes a difference to people’s lives.

Book now by emailing me at steph@essentialbeautyacademy.co.uk or call 07825 337342.

Do you Know Your Nail Treatments?

Our nail courses are some of our most popular courses, and for good reason. One, gorgeous nails make clients look and feel great, and two, nail treatments bring repeat business for you as a therapist.

In this blog, I’m going to look at the different nail treatments you might want to offer, and the benefits of training in them for you and your clients.

Manicure

Manicure training is a great investment, mainly because you’ll learn everything you need to know before you can go onto do other courses. For example, before you can do treatments like Gellux, you need to know about the structure of the nail and different polishing techniques. It’s no surprise, then, that our manicure course is one of our most popular nail courses.

Clients love being pampered and having their hands and nails cared for, and you’ll benefit from regular repeat custom.

Benefits of having manicures on your treatment menu

  • You can help clients improve the health of their natural nails;
  • The outlay for equipment is low, and there’s the option to upsell nail polishes that clients can use at home;
  • Manicures are always popular and you can enhance treatments with little luxuries at extra cost, like heated mitts.

Pedicure

Pedicures are a great addition to any treatment menu. A pedicure can feel like a soothing treat for busy, stressed out clients, and it’s a good treatment to offer as part of a holiday/pamper package alongside other treatments. Many students do their pedicure and manicure courses at the same time.

Benefits of having pedicures on your treatment menu

  • It’s a great treatment to add into a package;
  • If you want to go down the holistic route, it’s a lovely treatment to combine with other relaxing treatments;
  • It’s an opportunity to upsell products like foot scrubs and lotions;
  • Just like manicure, a pedicure can be enhanced with extra little touches like heated booties for an extra cost.

Acrylic extensions

Our acrylic nail course is still popular, despite a general shift towards clients preferring gel nails as they tend to be gentler on the natural nail. They take longer to apply than gel nails, but clients get instant additional nail length which they’ll love if they just can’t get their natural nails to grow. Acrylics need regular maintenance, so they’re guaranteed repeat business for you.

Benefits of having acrylic nail extensions on your treatment menu

  • Acrylics are generally durable and hard-wearing;
  • There are a lot of options available to clients in terms of nail shape, colour, and nail art;
  • For you as a therapist, acrylics don’t require a lot of outlay, and if you’re mobile, there’s no UV lamp required to set the nails/polish, so you can travel light!

Gel extensions

Our gel nail extension course is becoming ever more popular. It gives clients a bit of a more natural look and you also won’t have any whiffy acrylic vapours to deal with either.

Gel nails can be applied over the nail tip to extend natural nails, or if the client wants stronger natural nails, the gel can be applied over the entire nail. Like acrylics, these need maintenance every 2-3 weeks.

Benefits of having gel extensions on your treatment menu

  • If you’re a mobile therapist or your treatment room isn’t well ventilated, you won’t have to deal with strong odours like with acrylics;
  • Gel extensions give clients a natural look; perfect for pretty, understated wedding nails;
  • If you make a mistake or want to tweak something you can-the nail only sets once it’s been under the UV lamp;
  • In terms of transporting and storing your products, there’s less risk of spillages than with acrylic nails because the product comes ready mixed.

Gel polish

Gel polish training is popular because application is quick and easy to learn and it gives clients fast and long-lasting results. Gel polish only takes around 30-45 minutes to do and it will last for up to 3 weeks. For therapists, gel polish treatments can mean a lot of repeat custom. When clients see how much healthier and stronger their natural nails become after having gel polish, it can become addictive!
