Whether you are a licensed Aesthetician striving to broaden your skills, or a brand new student intrigued by the possibility of a beautiful new career, Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics offers the opportunity for personal, professional and spiritual growth on any level.
We prepare you to do MORE than just pass the state licensing exam…
Our goal is to provide you with as many career and entrepreneurial options as possible ~ not just ‘test preparation.’ While we do thoroughly prepare you to take both the written and practical licensing exams required by Arizona State Board of Cosmetology, our focus is on teaching you the real-world skills and current spa technologies used in high-end resorts and Med-spas that will lead to a great job, or to building a successful practice of your own.
We are proud to announce our 2010 Pass Rates for SWINA graduates taking their State Board Exams:

At Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics (SWINA), you will become proficient in waxing, a wide variety of spa treatments and cosmetic applications, including mineral-based make-up, featuring the products by Hylunia, Rhonda Allison, and Natural Beauty Highlites. Our program also includes training in Aromatherapy, Energetic Hot Stone Facials, Facial Lymphatic Drainage, Reflexology, Microdermabrasion, and Microcurrent to achieve non-surgical face-lift results.
The perfect blend of classical training & the mind-body wellness focus of today’s spas…
In addition to all of the clinical training we provide, we incorporate the Mind-Body-Spirit approach which includes natural, holistic beauty and wellness treatments. Many of the holistic specialty treatments included in our program would be considered post-graduate continuing education classes at other schools. With us ~ they are included in our curriculum! It’s the perfect blend between the classic clinical approach and the Mind-Body Wellness focus of today’s spas. When we say beauty is more than skin deep ~ we mean, we focus on helping each person discover the fact they are ‘Soul Beautiful’.
Our graduates are recognized valley-wide for our signature facial protocol, known as ‘Conscious-Touch’. We are committed to graduating ‘fully conscious’ practitioners, in tune with current market trends and technologies, as well as in tune with your clients’ energy.
