Spa Bali International Academy (SBIA) is an integrated learning facility for aspiring spa therapists to gain nationally accredited certification for employment within the wellness industry. The academy follows a comprehensive curriculum that combines the cultural traditions of Indonesian healing and beauty treatments together with international service and hospitality standards.
Courses at SBIA are flexible to anticipate the varying needs of individual students and range in length from 1 day to 3 months covering different modules of spa tuition. Refresher courses are also available for therapists looking to improve their therapeutic skills. There is even a 1 year course to prepare students for a rewarding career in the industry as a spa manager or consultant.
SBIA is a practice-orientated centre where the core emphasis is on hands-on training to develop technical and intuitive skills. Theoretical knowledge relating to the human anatomy, etiquette and so on is also essential, but only constitutes 30% of the whole curriculum.
Since 2006 SBIA has been one of Bali’s leading authorities on spa education. Successful graduates have gone on to work as experienced spa professionals across the Indonesian archipelago as well as overseas.
