1-Day Spa Hand Therapy Diploma Course ~£140


Hand and foot treatments are an important skill for any beauty therapist or complementary practitioner, and we are leading the way with this industry-first course combining traditional beauty skills with massage treatments and natural products. After being awarded this Diploma, students will be able to obtain insurance to practice Spa Hand Therapy professionally.

Spa Hand Therapy treatments are suitable for men and women, as the focus is on hand and nail care and on providing a spa element to the session with massage and luxury products. We teach you how to finish the treatment with nail polish, buffing or the use of products for nails with special needs so that you can appeal to a wide section of the public. 

Spa Hand Therapy is a wonderful complement to the skills of the Holistic, Reflexologist or Foot Care Practitioner, offering the chance to give your clients a truly luxurious pampering experience alongside other treatments.
