We look forward to seeing you in class soon to hone your skills or expand your knowledge.  Prepare for the future now.  We know requirements will become more stringent in the near future.

 Classes are held at our clinic in Eugene, Oregon.

Classes run from 9AM to 4 with a 1 hour lunch, but the duration of an individual class may vary depending on the number of participants and number of models available.   We cannot guarantee a model will be available for any specific service so if there is something you specifically want to learn, please indicate this on your registration form and ask about bringing in an outside model. Licensed estheticians or esthetic students may not attend as non-class member models.  All attendees will give and receive the treatments learned in that class.

“ON-DEMAND” Classes

These are private classes.  I am yours for the class. If you want to take advanced classes, please call and ask about our on-demand class program.  With this program, we will work with your schedule and ours to set up a “first available” or “next available” date for the class you need.  Note: if this is a single student class that includes a treatment you will need a model(s) to practice that treatment on. They will receive the treatment at 1/2 price. Or bring a friend, take the class together and work on each other.

Single student private training: $750 per day.

Two in class $400 per day, each.



Need training for several of your staff?  Ask about in clinic training where I would come to you.
