In England, where Chitra received her training, Beauty Therapy refers to all services provided by an Aesthetician and Massage Therapist. A beauty therapist uses a range of facial and body treatments to help their clients look and feel better. The professional training includes a two-year diploma program followed by a one-year apprenticeship. In the United States, this would be considered two different professions in the same way that a hair stylist and nail technician requires separate licensing.
As a beauty therapist, Chitra's goal is to apply treatments and techniques to help clients feel confident about themselves, by relieving the daily effects of modern living on the body. Chitra finds that by utilizing her 30+ years of experience and the additional knowledge from post-graduate training, she can provide expert skincareand massage services above and beyond what is offered at most local spas. Chitra tailors her holistic treatment plans to address each client's unique needs and concerns.
