ADVANCED HOLISTIC & INTEGRATIVE ESTHETIC SCIENCES - ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES IN ESTHETIC METHODOLOGY ©

     3 DAY CLASS - PRE REQUISITE WORK REQUIRED FOR ENROLLMENT


    Strategically researched and orchestrated, this seminar is recommended for progressive and innovative esthetic professionals who aspire to enrich their

    practicum and skills in holistic esthetics. The seminar adopts a novel approach and methodology - encouraging the esthetic professional to embrace a

    critical thinking posture. A highly innovative perspective towards alternative esthetic practices is presented while honoring the  traditional core

    concepts in holistic philosophy. We believe that these studies are the primary requirements for building a sound foundation as a holistic aesthetic

    professional. As the term “holistic” often remains ambiguous - the doctrines presented support a non- commercial approach. The utilization of holistic

    and integrative practices stem from key bio- individual observations and require a resourcefulness in utilizing both modalities and products. The

    comprehension of these philosophies will help to guide intuition, engage critical thinking and foster the skill sets of the skin wellness professional:
