Spa therapist careers

Working as a spa therapist gives the opportunity to practice a number of different disciplines - common options would include offering detox treatment, Reiki, Indian head massage, to name but a few. Let thefitmap.co.uk be your first choice to guide you through your training and beyond.

There are no set entry requirements needed to become a spa therapist as training is typically offered on an individual basis for the particular therapies. However, it is possible to study for an NVQ in spa therapy.

This is a Level 3 course, and though there are no set requirements for studying at this level, it is recommended that you study Level 2 Beauty Therapy first to achieve the basic skills required of a spa therapist.

  • Health & safety
  • Promoting products or services to clients
  • Providing head and body massage treatments
  • Understanding how to operate and control the water, temperature and spa facilities
  • Offering specialist spa treatments

There are also a range of optional units which include:
  • Electro-therapy to improve face and skin condition
  • Indian Head Massage
  • Massage using pre-blended aromatherapy oils
  • UV tanning treatments
  • Self tanning treatments
  • Improving the appearance of the skin with micro-dermabrasion
