Today the beauty industry has developed into a complex business that covers a great numbers of trends for body care and maintaining the healthy state because health and beauty is two sides of the same coin. One of the most popular trends in body care and beauty industry is spa. Spa salons are opened all over the world.

To visit a spa salon is not only fruitful but also very pleasant as it is a real enjoyment both for the body and soul.

Moreover, spa careers today are very profitable.
Entering a spa beauty career starts usually after the graduation from the special institutions such as schools, courses, colleges, etc., where the appropriate education can be received. Spa careers require the knowledge of the following subjects: operation of sophisticated spa machines, tools and devices, work with natural products applied in the processes, massage procedures, aroma therapy, and many other modern techniques, hair styling, nail treatment, and much more. The educational institutions offer also practice and theory because both of these disciplines are required and should be combined as integral parts of the training programs.
The cost of this education is not cheap because the work on a special equipment and usage of products may be included in the fee. The graduates have a lot of chances for successful spa careers development and can easily find prestigious jobs in local beauty salons that render spa services. Also spa salons offer a lot of other positions that do not require special professional qualities: culinary cook, dishwasher, reservations, housekeeping, etc.
Currently there are several international organizations that join together the spa specialists and may provide the service of professional certification. This may be very useful for those who proceed with spa careers and wish to receive the recognition or to prove their skills. For a spa salon it is also very prestigious to receive such a certificate for successful business activity and attracting more customers.
