Spa therapist jobs & careers

Not only do spa therapists practice a wide range of standard therapies but they also practise detox treatments, Reiki, Indian head massage, and aromatherapy.

Training will vary according to the particular therapies you wish to offer, though the wider the range of treatments you can provide, the greater your employment prospects and likely earnings. One option, however, is possible to study for an NVQ in spa therapy. There is an entry Level 2 Beauty Therapy NVQ which teaches the basic skills required of a spa therapist, and then a Level 3 Spa Therapy NVQ course.

The Level 3 course is designed for those who want to become senior spa therapists, supervisors, managers, or owners, and covers a whole range of topics, including:

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

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