The courses cover full body massage, facials, skin care, reflexology, lymph drainage, aroma therapy, classic cosmetics and Thalasso mud treatment. Training for manicure, pedicure and eyelash tinting is combined with body massage, reflexology and aromatherapy.

The main emphasis is to treat clients holistically with organic, pure products. These products, which are supplied by reputable Spanish and French companies, use ingredients from all over the world and all the therapeutic and medicinal range of natural care products have been thoroughly tried and tested.

All course instruction is personally given by Bettina Papenkort who brings over 35 years of experience and knowledge to the training.



Before training, the student meets with Bettina in her centre to run through what is included in the course. The student's expectations and the training programme.

The recommended hours are carried out in blocks of 3 hours twice or three times a week, the schedule can be flexible depending on the availability of the students. It's important to bear in mind that the fundamental objectives of the course is a keen interest in learning the subject and a real desire to become a professional beauty and massage therapist. Bettina will create a tailored course to the students level of experience from the basics to developing existing skills and knowledge.

"Although I started from nothing, Bettina shared a great amount of knowledge and techniques that allowed me to provide unique deep tissue and facial massages.
Not only to mention the fantastic venue of her spa, Bettina's teaching is at the same time creative and structured. She is generous and gives you a lot of useful professional tips gathered from her experience."

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course: there was the right amount of practical and theory for me. More than the course, Bettina made me feel at home and a part of the local community while I was in Mallorca. I learnt a lot and still practise the massage techniques that she taught me 3 years ago.
*I give massages to family and friends on occasion, but am not practising professionally*"
