We will teach you how to select treatments for specific cases, how to perform them correctly, and when not to do them.

You will find out how to perform podology treatments and how to deal with various pedological problems. You will learn how to make your own cosmetics based on a formula by making appropriate chemical calculations. You will also find out how to determine the influence of the ingredients of a given cosmetic product on biochemical processes in the skin. You will learn the principles of analyzing the influence of various stimuli on the human body, including aromatherapy.
