About

With a focus on health, wellness and beauty from the inside out, ASTECC’s Esthetician and Therapist trainings emphasize therapeutic techniques, analysis, protocols and the application of natural elements. Featuring trainings in Dr. Vodder’s MLD, Soft Tissue disciplines, Hydrotherapy, Bio-Chemical Elements and Personal Lifestyle Profiles, ASTECC trainings draw on the regenerative nature of touch and natural elements to balance and restore tissue integrity and ‘constitutional’ wellbeing.

The Nature of ASTECC

As a child growing up in Yorkshire I worked with horses, seeing to their needs, treating their minor injuries and whenever I had free time (between school and the horses) I roamed the Yorkshire moors collecting bilberries, wildflowers and, to my mother’s utter dismay, frog spawn. At the time, of course, I had no idea I was dabbling with what would become my life’s work – touch, bio-chemistry, natural elements – but it was a wonderful and exciting way to discover the natural world: the essence of plants, the potency of earth matter, the healing power of touch.

For me, it was an intriguing mystery. A mystery waiting to be solved.

That was more than forty years ago and I am still intrigued by the mystery – still in love with the work I do.

ASTECC is an expression of our potential as practitioners. It is the value that engages you while attracting and growing an enthusiastic, appreciative clientele. It brings meaning to our work.

In many ways, It is a path and a journey. But it’s never a destination.

We keep learning and growing.

It’s our nature.

“If I could wave a magic wand all spa therapists would be ASTECC trained.”
