The ICA Somatology programme provides students the opportunity to participate in a wide range of learning opportunities. Our graduates are equipped to work in a spa or a salon, and with the extended knowledge they gain through their three years of training, they are also employed by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and general medical practitioners. The Diploma in Somatology develops the entrepreneurial skills of our students and empowers them to start their own businesses.

The training of our Somatologists is thorough and much time is spent not only on the theory but on the practical applications to develop poise, confidence and skills in the work place. Somatology is a very personal service and due to the confidential nature of treatments, our graduates learn to engage and converse with people on an intimate level with integrity.

Our practitioners will apply their practical skills and theoretical knowledge to provide preventative treatments and to restore balance, allowing for a holistic approach to therapy.
