Holistic Foot Care including Pedicure Techniques

Time:  9.30 - 4.30
Cost:  £200

This course is aimed at those who are looking for more than a standard beauty-based Pedicure qualification. Once you have done the online theory modules and attended the two day practical – you will however receive a GTi Pedicure qualification in addition to the West Shires certificate in Holistic Foot Care.  You do not have to have any previous qualifications, but you may be a Reflexologist or Massage therapist and be looking to add a confident foot care treament to further help your clients. 

The online part of the course is offered by The Beauty Guild – a well known and respected accreditor of many courses, and you will be able to obtain insurance via The Guild. First you will complete their Professional Standards course – for which you receive a separate certificate – for no extra charge and then you go on to complete 6 modules covering the Anatomy and Physiology of the feet, contraindications and areas where you need to be careful when treating the feet; you also cover preparation and techniques and treatment adaptations and aftercare.

When you come for the Practical element of the course we are taking things in a more Holistic direction and so adding several elements to the training that will enable you to offer a reassuring and relaxing experience for the client who is having trouble with their feet,  or just feel that they need looking after a bit better than the client feels they  are able to.   

The practical element of the course covers how to start with a pampering foot bath followed by the nail cutting and removal of hard skin – which is what you need the Pedicure qualification for – and also care of the skin and nails and how to recognise any problems, as well as how to tailor a treatment specifically for the individual client.  Although applying nail polish to the nails is covered in the theory aspect of the course – it will not be covered within the two day practical training.  You will learn how to do a full and effective lower leg and foot massage.

On the second afternoon of the course we will bring in some clients for you to practice a full Holistic Foot Care routine and this will form your assessment.
