The constant stress of modern living has resulted in fatigue, exhaustion, weakened immune function, toxicity, poor digestion and an overall decline in health. Infrared Therapy burns calories while you relax, lose inches, detoxify the body, improve skin condition and provide chronic pain relief. For a sculptured body with minimal effort, try Infrared treatment. Infrared energy will heal, repair, detox, de-stress and rejuvenate.

Our courses are suitable for Beauty Therapists with the suitable pre-requisites (Level 3 Beauty or equivalent) and Aesthetic practitioners

NB: We expect students to have read the course materials fully prior to attending the onsite course at the Academy of Advanced Beauty

In order to graduate from all of our courses, students will need to pass a final written examination to assess their knowledge and understanding, and to pass a practical observation performing the treatment in full, including client consultation and aftercare.

For Level 4 courses, after having completed the practical session at the Academy, students will be asked to complete four case studies and a 5,000-word assignment in order to complete the course Level 4 Accredited Course certificates will be issued externally.

For our Short Courses, we will provide an Academy of Advanced Beauty Diploma The Infrared Therapy Level 4 accredited course carries 6 credits and will qualify you for insurance cover. Some of these credits can be transferred to other courses if the subject matter overlaps. For example, if you have studied the necessary Health and Safety legislation in the Aesthetics sector, you will not need to cover this in the same amount of detail for any additional course which covers this same material

Our short courses, for those wish to learn more about the treatments without gaining an accredited Level 4 course, are one day in duration

Our Level 4 course includes a substantial theory component which explores the science behind the treatment further, and comprises of a one-day practical training session where you will be asked to demonstrate your competence in the treatment through a series of assessments and exams
