2020 is upon us and for many school leavers (and those seeking a shift in their careers), the new year brings with it new hope for opportunities. Some individuals are interested in the world of health, wellness, and beauty, but are not yet sure of what to study. Others are seeking a profession where they can meet new people, travel the world, and enjoy fantastic career benefits. If you fall into either category, then perhaps it is time you look into our exciting three-year somatology diploma course.
What is Somatology All About?
Somatology is a broad industry that involves the study and science of all things body-related. While many somatologists are known for make-up artistry or nail treatments, this multi-faceted career is so much more than beautifying clients. Somatologists are not just beauty therapists concerned with aesthetics, but rather take a wholistic approach to health and wellbeing, focusing on the specific needs of the client. Some of the fields somatologists can choose to specialise in include:
- Make-up techniques
- Massage techniques and sciences including reflexology and aromatherapy
- Facial and body beauty treatments
- Non-invasive cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery
- Cosmetic chemistry
- Hair removal techniques
- Skin and body analysis
- Nail technology
- Diet and nutrition
- Business management
