Advance Your Massage Therapy Knowledge

Are you looking for a more in depth massage therapy program? With International Academy’s spa specialist program, you can learn additional services that aren’t offered within a Massage Therapy licensure, in Florida. Come and see how our program can give you valuable knowledge and help your future as a massage therapist.

Our Spa Specialty Program

Part of what makes our spa specialty program so unique, is that you get the benefits from our massage therapy program, with additional education on skincare. Currently, our program consists of two of our existing programs, Massage Therapy and Skin care, Hair Removal, and Spa Training. Our program is broken up into four sections:

  • Massage Therapy Basics: The basics start with an orientation to the field of massage therapy and the history of massage. We take students through human body systems, anatomy and physiology, professional ethics, kinesiology, and basic Swedish massage with clinical practicum, all in a classroom setting. This foundation is crucial to make sure our students understand the impacts each treatment and product has on each client.
  • Advanced Massage Therapy: After completing the basics, you can move into a continuation of the first section with expanding concepts such as oriental massage, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial, deep tissue, athletic/sports massage, and more in a spa/salon environment. As part of this phase, we focus on making sure each student is prepared for licensure as part of their journey of becoming a licensed massage therapist.

Once students have completed their massage therapy portion, students will start 310 hours of skincare and spa training.

  • Basic Skincare Skills: You’ll be introduced to the world of skincare, hair removal, and spa training. You’ll learn theories within a classroom setting and work on manikins and live models for hands-on practice.
  • Advance Skincare Skills: As an extension of basic skills, you’ll get the opportunity to work on real clients in our student salon while preparing for employment competency level and licensure.

*All student services done under the supervision of our licensed instructors

Testimonials

I searched for six months looking for a school where I could learn cosmetology and fully learn esthetics in the same place. When I finally found International Academy, I thought it was too good to be true. The Administration was so caring and attentive to anything that I needed to make my transition to Daytona and into school as easy as possible. Also, the facilities at International Academy are amazing! The equipment and products that we trained with are of the highest quality. The equipment in the school spa is more up-to-date and high-tech than many of the professional spas out there today. I feel like International Academy has thoroughly prepared me to be one of the best in the beauty industry!

I escaped East Berlin Germany to the USA to follow my dreams. I discovered International Academy. It was the best decision I ever made! After graduating I have since bought my own salon and ran it for the past 10 years with 9 employees. I owe it all to International Academy for all their experience and training. I highly recommend this wonderful school for a life changing experience. Always follow your dreams!
