A boom in the development of hotel and inner city spas and salons across major cities, from Dubai to New York and London, has brought with it a renewed demand for skilled spa professionals, from therapists and beauticians up to spa managers, operators and developers…There are two major career paths within the spa sector: Spa managers and directors, who deal with the management and operation of spas and spa therapists, who provide the one on one treatments for clients.

Although it is possible to work your way up from therapy to spa management, they are specialist roles that often take separate career paths and require different skill sets and qualifications.
