BODY WRAP CERTIFICATION FLORIDA ONLY

Body Wrap Certification varies from state to state and it is recommended to contact your State Department of Regulations to make sure you and your business will be operating under the law required for performing body wraps.

A Body Wrap Certification and License, as of today, is only required by the state of Florida.

If you do not have a Body Wrap License and you are doing body wraps… you are working illegally in the State of Florida.

In other words, some states may require no body wrap license or body wrap certification at all, other states may require a cosmetology license, a massage therapy license or an esthetics license to perform body wraps.  In the state of Florida you do not need any of those licenses prior to needing a body wrap certification license should you want to perform body wraps.

In the State of Florida, a 12 Hour Body Wrapping Certification Course is required to perform body wraps.  The Florida State Requirements are as follows:

Three (3) hours of Instruction on HIV/AIDS and other Communicable Diseases

Four (4) hours of Instruction on Sanitation and Sterilization

Four (4) hours of Instruction on Disorders and Diseases of the Skin

One (1) hour of Instruction on Florida Laws and the Rules of the Board which affect and govern the practice of body wrapping.

As a student, you must present a valid Driver’s License, Social Security Card #, and money order, cashiers check or paypal payment for the fee required (below) and a $30.00 money order payable to Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

You will also need to have two (2) passport pictures taken (one for the state and one for you to keep for your license), when submitting your 12 Course Certification paperwork from me.

OPTION 1:  $895  (includes the $30 Florida state fee)

If you are new to body wrapping and want to experience and learn about the different types available before you begin your body wrap business, then this is the OPTION for you!

Not only will you meet Florida state requirements, but you will also get to experience one of the three most popular body wrap treatments on the market today.

We come to YOU….On YOUR Site 12 Hour Course (you will need to provide the location)

You will experience one of the following different types of body wrap treatments (your choice):

I only use LA SlimWrap body wrap products.

1.  Mineral

2.  Aloe/Clay

3.  Infrared

OPTION 2:  $295

You will meet the 12 Hour Required Florida State Department of Regulations Body Wrapping Certification Course via and Skype (or Facetime).  Course must be given face-to-face providing information, tests and demonstrations.*

OPTION 3:  If you are new to body wrapping and are planning on opening a body wrap shop or adding body wraps to your existing business and you decide that LA SlimWrap body wraps will be your body wrap product of choice to offer your clients, during training we will cover the all the requirements for the 12 Hour Florida Body Wrapping Certification Course during your LA SlimWrap training.   LA SlimWrap Body Wrap Business Info

PLEASE CALL 630-343-9730 for more information and/or to set your Certification Date.

*Word of Caution! If you should contact any Florida 12 Hour Body Wrap Certification provider and they are only emailing you the information and stating you will be certified, then buyer beware!  As per the State of Florida’s Department of Regulations, this is illegal and your certification may be null and void.

Nikki Jordan- Aesthetician April 11, 2012 at 4:49 pm

I am an esthetician in Florida and took my 12 hour body wrapping course in while attending school for my license, over 1200 hours of school instead of the required 260 hours. I was wondering if there was a way for us to do the option 2 at a slightly lower price, where I would be trained specifically in the wraps you offer (as I will be ordering these for my day spa room) and I could demonstate and complete any rigorous testing you would put me through. Mainly, Im just looking to not have to retake this whole 12 hour course. If there is anyway you would be able to help me, to see and know that I am well versed in my industry and the skills i have aquired from my education. Thank you :)

Hi Nikki, WOW on the hours you have spent on licensing! It is amazing to me that FL only requires 260 hours for esthetics. I had three times that amount of hours in IL. Please call me at 630-343-9730 and I will be happy to help you.

to get the body wrap license do you have to be a massage therapist or a esthetician?

Hi Kendi,

Each State has different requirements as to becoming a body wrap technician. It is best to check the Department of Regulations in the State you wish to operate. FLORIDA is the only State as of today (July 28, 2012) that ONLY requires a 12 Body Wrap Certification Course and does NOT require you to also hold either a cosmetology, esthetician, or massage therapist license.

Thank you for contacting me,

Andrea

Hi Andrea,
First of all, I want to thank you for your site. It is short, to the point and above all, it is very informative.
I live in Florida and was on the verge of looking into finding a college or institute that offered any of the courses that would allow me to qualify as a body wrap technician. And I am very happy to know that I can pay the requiered fees, provide a training location, take the 12 Hour Body Wrap Certification and be qualified to work. And option #1 would be my choice.
Just one more question please. I don’t have a salon yet and I have no idea what a suitable training location would be for you. Can you give me a suggestion please. Or does it mean I can’t take the course?
Hoping to hear from you.
Rebecca

Hi Tammy,

Thank you for contacting me.

In the State of Florida, a 12 Hour Body Wrapping Certification Course is required to perform body wraps. It has nothing to do with learning body wrapping! The Florida State Requirements are as follows: Instruction on HIV/AIDS and other Communicable Diseases, Instruction on Sanitation and Sterilization, Instruction on Disorders and Diseases of the Skin, Instruction on Florida Laws and the Rules of the Board which affect and govern the practice of body wrapping.

I will be happy to Certify you and help you in any way I can….with the hope that you love body wrapping and the many great benefits it can provide to your clients.

You can take the course with me via Skype or Facetime, as the course and testing has to be done face to face. By taking the Certification this way, you will save time and money that travel expenses can incur.

Please feel free to contact me directly, if you have any further questions and would like to begin Certification.

IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF FLORIDA AND WOULD LIKE CERTIFICATION AND NEED YOUR CONTINUING EDUCATION HOURS, I can also help you with that and provide you with 7 hours of certification.

Take Care,
Andrea

Hi Danette,

Thank you for contacting me. I will be happy to help you in any way I can. I also emailed you with my cell number to contact me directly.

In the meantime, you probably have the necessary testing for HIV/AIDS, Sanitation and Sterilization, and Disorders and Diseases of the Skin because of your LMT and CT certification. Which means we will have to just go over everything to make sure it is all correct, and we can meet the requirements so that you can submit everything and a certificate from me to the State of Florida to be able to body wrap.

We can also discuss, what type of body wraps you want to offer to your clients and how I can help you decide which kind and/or product to consider.

I look forward to speaking with you.

Good Afternoon,

I am looking to opening a body wrap and skin care center in Central FL. Due to the training requirements I have not been able to find a location that offers flexibility. I work full time in another fill but have started to move more into opening my own spa. I travel a lot with my job and wanted to find out more about your training

Hi TaCreacia,

Thank you for contacting me about body wrap training and the 12 Hour Required Florida Certification.

I am happy to help you in any way I can. Please know that the 12 Hour Florida Body Wrap Certification does not have anything to do with actual body wrapping. The State of Florida requires these extra 12 hours: 3 hours of Instruction on HIV/AIDS and other Communicable Diseases, 4 hours of Instruction on Sanitation and Sterilization, 4 hours of Instruction on Disorders and Diseases of the Skin, and 1 hour of Instruction on Florida Laws and the Rules of the Board which affect and govern the practice of body wrapping.

I also emailed you, so that we can set up a time to chat so that I may answer all of your questions. You can also call me at 630-343-9730. I look forward to talking to you soon.

Andrea

Hi Andrea,

I am an LMT in FL and am interested in getting certified in body wrapping. Seeing as I have taken FL law and HIV/aids, is there a way to figure out a package that lies in between?
