Spa Specialist Program

The Spa Specialist Program allows the massage therapist to offer additional services within a spa not included within his/her Massage Therapy Licensure. These services can add valuable income and allows the employer to have one trained Spa Specialist instead of having the need to hire a massage therapist and esthetician.

Once the Massage Therapy Program is complete; the student enters phase two of the program, with 310 hours of intense skin and spa training. Students will learn about the skin  structure and function, as well as the proper use of various skin care treatments. Our curriculum will prepare students in the latest treatments of spa therapies, hydrotherapy, makeup-up application and hair removal. Students will explore subjects such as understanding the skin, infection control, mask and spa therapy. Students will perform facials, seaweed therapy, body wraps, exfoliating peels, relaxation treatments, stress recovery, massage of the neck and face and waxing. The course includes training in paramedical facial treatments such as microdermabrasion, ultrasonic facials, light therapy and advanced skin analysis.

Upon completion of the program, the student is prepared to pass the State authorized MBLEX Test, for Massage Therapy and then apply for their Florida Massage Therapy License, as well as, apply for and receive their license for Skin Care Hair Removal Specialist.

Testimonials

International Academy provided me with a strong educational and professional foundation in which I have been able to build upon. My goal has been to elevate myself and others to new levels of success and to show cosmetology graduates that anything is possible in our industry.

Kirk R.

With the education I received from International I quickly advanced in the industry. After graduation I quickly surpassed colleagues in my salon and moved into management after six months. After only three years I was able to open my own salon which has been very successful. All of this has been possible because of International Academy!

After graduating from Intl Academy I went out into the real world of with such confidence and was ready for anything had to offer me. I started with Hair Cuttery and in 6 months became the manager. Several years later I opened my own salon with another Intl Academy grad and have successfully been in business over 4 years thanks to my fabulous education, love and support from Mez and the entire staff at Intl Academy!
