What does it mean to be multi-licensed?
The owners of Universal Spa Training Academy (USTA) have also been spa owners. They’ve been educators, instructors, and most importantly, students. As a prospective student, you should know that most spa services have peak seasonal times. As an employee, what will you do in the slow periods? How will you supplement your income?
MESSAGE FOR OUR STUDENTS FROM:
Katie Armitage, president, ASCP (Associated Skin Care Professionals)
”Many of our members are becoming dual-licensed both in skin care and massage in order to meet their clients needs. A welcome result of this trend has been relief from many of the overuse injuries we traditionally see in massage therapists. Providing skin care requires different body mechanics and allows the therapist to recoup from the physical demands of massage therapy. Spa employers, too, enjoy the diversity that dual-licensed professionals offer their spa menus. There is a natural blend between the two therapies, as they both offer anti-aging and anti-anxiety treatments in a safe and serene spa setting.”
