Gain training in esthetic and massage careers at local institute and training spa
The community is also encouraged to participate in the training spa and receive services from interns and newly certified therapists.
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -White Elm Wellness Institute & Training Spa is now open and providing educational training in the fields of massages and esthetics.
A big reason behind why Hanna Hayes Hart, owner of White Elm Wellness Institute & Training Spa, opened the institute was both the strain placed on her therapists to become certified and the lack of places here locally to do it.
“With having White Elm Day Spa, what I realized is that we don’t have a program here locally, so a lot of my therapists would have to go to Houston and Austin in order to become certified to work,” said Hart.
White Elm Wellness Institute & Training Spa provides students with certifications, hands-on training, and professional support and takes less than a year to complete.
The school offers programs like a massage certification, esthetic certification, eyelash extensions courses, yoga instruction and more. Click here to learn more.
Hart also says there is a scholarship opportunity available every year to one student.
“Every year we want to offer a scholarship to one student who has shown how they have provided wellness within their own life and how it has provided wellness to others that are within their family, their friends, their work circle, whatever that looks like,” said Hart. “We want them to write us a one to two-page essay. Let me know why this is important for you, why this career change is something you need, and what that wellness will do for you and others.”
Submissions can be submitted to info@WhiteElmWellnessInstitute.com. The scholarship is worth $8,000-$12.000.
The community can get involved with the institute, too, through the Training Spa.
“One of the things we really need are people to volunteer to have services performed on them both by students in their internship,” said Hart. “[Students in the internship] They are not certified, but once they are certified and have that license, we need them [the public] to come and experience and give us that feedback on these newly licensed individuals so they can become the best that they can be.”
Services from the Training Spa include massage therapies and skin services like facials, hair removal, peels and etc. Prices for these services do vary, but according to White Elm Wellness Institute, most 1-hour services start at $40.
