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.

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.

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.
