Question For The Ladies

23 posts in this topic

Are any of the ladies on here ex-beauticians and qualified masseuses?

If so, did your previous choice of career have any bearing on what you do now?

And no it did not.

I've been escorting for almost 11 years. I've been working as a therapist for many more.

Escorting never crossed my mind while I was working full time as a therapist.

 

Massage is just one of many modules when training as a beauty therapist. I qualified as a sports injury therapist a couple of years ago.

 

I don't offer massages when escorting.

No but I'm currently studying to be one, and for the highest qualification in massage and beauty therepy worldwide. It's going to take me a couple more years though! I offer massages in an escort booking but I haven't been on the course long so I'm not yet qualified.

What type of massage course is it Kylie, and which one is recognised as the highest qualification,

It's the only type recognised internationally. So if you want to work on cruise ships ect or in other countries with it, it's the only recognised qualification. Or say sports injury which really appeals to me. So you could be employed by a number of different people. Plus if you go for any job your CV will go above the rest. It's basically a level 3 qualification but a lot higher. I could have just gone for a level 3 which would have been a lot cheaper but as soon as I saw this I had my heart set on it. So it covers everything from waxing and nails to holistic therapies such as Aromatherapy massage, Swedish massage, Reflexology, Indian head massage, just literally everything and the fees were similar to Uni fees! I was really glad I could do it part-time too. I'd rather not say the actual name because I don't want people to go snooping but any therapist will know what I'm talking about and there's only a dozen colleges in England that offer it.

Of course you are within your rights to say nothing about the course, or what colleges offer this course, but if someone wanted more info on this, as I have a family member who is showing signs of heading in this direction, I had hoped for a little bit more info, but dont want to be seen as snooping as you put it, just trying to get more info for a relative.

The course that I'm taking was a 7k starting fee and then a further 4k after one year. Like I said it's similar to uni fees. Even though you get free education up to 19 I doubt you would get it for this particular course. I would imagine most people look at student loans. You can do a level two or three Beauty Therapy course at most colleges though. I'm not going to tell anyone where I'm actually studying am I! Lol come on, lets get real. I think I'm given enough information if you wanted to do some research on it.

From experience - the best route is the NVQ system up to level 4. Prior academic qualifications are not needed, as it is regarded as a craft based course, it can be achieved at one's own pace. PM me if you need any details in your area ......

Romeo obviously does not understand what I am talking about regarding it being the only recognised qualification worldwide for Beauty Therapy. There is no such thing as a level 4 in Beauty Therepy apart from working in a managers position, although there may be in pacific type of massage but I am talking about the whole package of Beauty Therepy. Plus diplomas are generally higher than NVQs. Like I said I know exactly what I'm talking about. Just put highest qualification in beauty therepy in google and it will come up.

My sister in law is a sports therapist now and didn't touch the beauty market.

Try this hon for your family member,   http://www.devonacademy.co.uk/?gclid=CMeKtvD8gLUCFUbKtAodLWwALQ

 

or this one...  http://www.nlssm.com/JointheExperts/AProfessionalQualification.aspx

 

I can't find level 6 BTEC, But, if it's internationally recognised, then it's usually ITEC qualified and certified.

 

Also ITEC hold a registry online so you could in theory google a girls personal info, which is why they are so guarded about it.

Once your ITEC qualified you are on that registry.

Personally I have never enjoyed beauty therapy type things but love getting them done. I know a fair few WG's that have beauty qualifications and one that has her own shop.
 
I did Politics and French at uni and the only benefit is being able to impress French punters :)

We all study different subject.  Many because we are interested in the subject and other so that we can advance our careers outside of prossying.

 

After all prossying is not exactly a lifetime vocation and other  avenues have to be researched.

A family member is a fully qualified beauty therapist and she practices on me.  Does this count?

A large number of posts have been edited out of this thread as they contained personal information that might be used to identify a member on here, or referred to those posts.

 

As this has made such a mess of the narrative I am locking this thread.
