Our spa welcome course is accredited by two professional bodies and can be carried out in house. Even better, it is available free of charge with a minimum product order. We also offer a chargeable training offer where specialist products are not required.
Your therapists will receive 4 separate accredited qualifications
We all want a client experience to be seamless – front of house and reservations need to know about products and services for those affected by cancer as do beauty shop staff and spa leaders who are not able to join the training.
Our accredited workbook-based training is tailored to the needs of each team and can be completed remotely. If you prefer, we are able to integrate a face –to face session during the two-day therapist training.

Defiant Beauty by Jennifer Young
Jennifer Young started working with her local hospital to create the Defiant Beauty Collection in 2009. The work was done at the hospital’s invitation; some ladies who were going through treatment at the hospital asked her to create a skincare range for cancer patients. The lead nurses for chemotherapy and radiotherapy helped.
Beyond Beauty by Jennifer Young
Beyond Beauty by Jennifer Young was created in 2016 as Defiant Beauty clients asked for something that they could use after treatment when their skin was less sensitive. Beyond Beauty is also suitable for those actively in treatment who are experiencing fewer skin related side effects.
Both the Defiant Beauty Collections and the Beyond Beauty Collections address the concerns of both patients and nurses in the original product development team.
Jennifer Young knows the spa industry and your new client group; has years of experience of managing the interface between them, ensuring that the treatment is the best it can possibly be, both for your spa and your clients.
The Jennifer Young Training School has some excellent links with hospitals hospices and support groups. We always invite models to in-spa training, places usually fill very quickly as the specialist products and treatments are known, trusted and loved.
