Related Anatomy and Physiology

Mastering the provision of beauty treatments begins with a strong understanding of related anatomy and physiology.  Along with performing treatments, beauty therapists must be able to offer accurate and confident recommendations, in accordance with their observations.  This means getting to know the human body on a deeper level, for which targeted study is required.  While it’s true to say that the beauty therapy learning experience is ongoing, a strong initial educational foundation is mandatory.  Particularly if looking to establish your own business or work as an independent freelance beauty therapist.
