With an educational approach to wellness, SWINA students learn how to bring out inner beauty naturally, in both themselves and their clients. SWINA offers training in a wide range of aesthetic (esthetic) careers, ranging from makeup application to laser treatments and facials. Students become proficient in more than 20 facial protocols including theory and practical skills. With just one certification, students can choose many different career paths. Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics’ mission is to help individuals discover their gifts and graces, and support them as they share their talents with the world in a loving and profitable way.
Along with structured beauty and wellness curriculum, students learn the practical tools to become successful in the ever growing spa and wellness industry. Integrated into the elegantly appointed school along with academic classrooms, a student lounge and student library/media center is SWINA’s Student Day Spa. Here students are able to work with actual clients once they have successfully passed the necessary competencies and apply a wide range of their skills in a professional spa setting. Students are coached and supported throughout this applied hands-on training.
While graduates will be thoroughly prepared to take both the written and practical licensing exams required by Arizona State Board of Cosmetology, SWINA’s focus is on teaching the real-world skills and current spa technologies used in high-end resorts and med-spas that will lead to a great job or to building a successful entrepreneurial practice.
