Benefits of Being An Esthetician

Posted on: October 25th, 2016

Becoming an esthetician is fulfilling and every day is different. If you are the type of person who likes to help people, make a difference and have a flexible schedule, keep reading! From our Core Aesthetics program to our Advanced Aesthetics, we offer many trainings and programs to help launch your career after school. There are a wide range of benefits of becoming an esthetician, but it first starts with a program that will give you the knowledge and confidence to help your clients. Below are some benefits in launching your own career as an Esthetician.

Working with People. Having the opportunity to work with people up close and personal helps to build lasting relationships and trust.

Always Something New. Each client and every skin type are different so it makes the every day exciting!

Flexible Schedules. Since your work is done by appointment, you have the benefits of scheduling appointments when it fits.

Many employment options. From salons to doctor’s offices there are many places of employment after you graduate. Here at USTA we also prepare you for just that with our Business classes.

Helping clients achieve skin goals. There is nothing more satisfying than to help a client with a particular skin issue. The gratification of knowing you were able to help someone will also create a life time client. As a medical esthetician, you have the privilege of helping dermatologists and doctors create overall plans to help clients regain confidence in their looks.

Our Aesthetics training is starting this November! In this class you will explore the current science of skin therapy while developing your hands-on skills right from the start, progressing to advanced therapies and the world of medical spas. We are proud to say that USTA has graduated over 1000 aesthetic students with an average placement rate of 86%.

Benefits Of Meditation

Posted on: October 6th, 2016

meditationAt Universal Spa Training Academy, we believe when you meditate, you clear away the information overload that sometimes builds up during the day. You are then able to focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress. Studies have shown that just a 5 minute session can result in enhanced physical and emotional well-being.

Benefits of Meditation

  1. Reduces Stress. Research published in the Health Psychology journal stated that meditation is not only associated with feeling less stressed, it’s also linked with decreased levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
  2. Visualization. Visualizing where you are and where you want to go is beneficial when starting a new career. This helps to put everything in perspective as you reflect.
  3. Improved concentration. This helps during class times, at work and even those at home tasks.
  4. Encourages a healthy lifestyle. When you are able to calm your mind, it reduces stress not just in your mind but also in your body. This helps gain perspective and seek the need for an overall healthier lifestyle.
  5. Increases happiness. Studies have shown that when you meditate you release endorphins and serotonin, which are your ‘feel good’ chemicals in the brain. This makes you happier and less likely to lean towards negativity.
  6. Improves sleep. Do you ever experience those sleepless nights? Meditation helps to calm your mind and body to relax and ultimately catch those z’s.
  7. Increases creativity. If you are more relaxed you can focus on more important tasks. You can accurately prioritize your life and have the mental capacity to get creative.

Our meditation room at USTA is open and free for massage therapy and aesthetic students to use. Meditation sessions are open and non-religious. We just think it makes a well-rounded student and our performance statistics prove it!
