Pressotherapy offers the client a solution for lymph drainage and effective reduction of cellulite. This computer controlled compression system operates using inflating pumps. The device has separate chambers which are positioned around the body, improving the venous and lymph flow and enhancing extra-cellular fluid clearance, reducing swelling and oedema. Pressotherapy is an excellent treatment for effective lymph drainage clearing up toxins, as well as reducing cellulite. This should be an essential element to any slimming treatment package.

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 Pressotherapy for Lymphatic Drainage and Cellulite Reduction Level 4 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 courses are suitable for Beauty Therapists with the suitable pre-requisites (Level 3 Beauty or equivalent) and Aesthetic practitioners

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

Our Level 4 course is based on core knowledge taught on the short course but in addition includes a substantial theory component which explores the science behind the treatment further, and includes a substantial theory component and 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.

 

In the course, we will cover how to prepare for and carry out Pressotherapy treatments safely, covering necessary legislation, core knowledge and science behind the treatment as well as how best to handle the equipment and maximise treatment results.

In order to graduate from all of our courses, delegates 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.
