Beauty Therapy Specialisms

The field of beauty therapy is a very broad one, and it encompasses a great many different specialisms. As such, if you want to maximise the potential of you having a long and successful career in beauty therapy, you should take you time in choosing a specialist area (or, indeed, broadening your training to include a few different areas), and taking relevant qualifications to give yourself the best chance of being considered for specific jobs. Below are just a few of the areas that you may want to specialise in: there are any number of courses for those wishing to become an expert in their field.

Some people train in one of the various forms of body massage that exist. For example, you may want to become a specialist in massage using pre-blended aromatherapy oils – plant oils that give off relaxing and pleasant aromas. Alternatively, you might become an expert in Indian head massage (or ‘champissage’), a technique by which the head, neck and face are massaged in order to clear blocks in energy channels throughout the body. There are many other alternative medicinal massage practices – for example, reiki, a spiritual practice whereby the massager distributes healing energy – or ki – through the palms of their hands.

You might also specialise in a more technical treatment – for example waxing, epilating, threading or other forms of hair-removal. You may also decide to become proficient in giving Botox injections – an increasingly lucrative source of income for many beauty therapists. Alternatively, specialising in a particular area of the body might also reap its rewards: you might become an expert in giving pedicures or facials, for instance, or might become a specialist hairdresser or nail technician / artist. Department stores also always need people to demonstrate and sell various brands of make-up and cosmetics – this is another popular specialist area.
