us-bureau-of-labor-statistics1 We are committed to taking an Educational Approach to Wellness and Beauty. Our intention is to produce ‘fully conscious’ graduates who are aware of current market trends and are in tune with their clients energy.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, skin care specialist careers are among the top 30 fastest-growing occupations in America through 2016, making this the perfect time to follow your dream!

Our 600-hour aesthetics program has been carefully designed to provide an integrative, holistic, natural, and clinical approach to skin care. In addition to teaching you the fundamentals of aesthetics as regulated by the Arizona State Board of Cosmetology, SWINA provides training in complimentary methods of touch therapies, aromatherapy and Ayurvedic Theory. In addition, our program also offers you an introduction to reflexology, microdermabrasion, and microcurrent, along with our signature “Conscious Touch Protocol.”

Many of our students choose to combine our Cassee_Swina2029180-hour Cosmetic Laser Technician certificate with our 600-hour Aesthetics program. For these students, we offer a combined 780-hour program. Our Laser Technician training exceeds the requirements of the Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency by offering the required 40 hours of Laser Didactic and Intense Pulse Light training, as well as many hours of clinical observations and hands-on treatments. Cosmetic Laser Technician training is also offered as a 180-hour course for already licensed aestheticians and cosmetologists.

Our research shows that the many employers request dually licensed therapists–graduates who are licensed as both Massage Therapists and as Aestheticians. We are very excited to be the leading school in Arizona to offer a combined 1000-hour program that combines Massage Therapy and Aesthetics. This program, along with our overall holistic approach, makes our graduates stand out above the rest!
