Back to School

“Did you remember your new pencil box and notebooks?”

Mom just waved goodbye to the bus after shoving your *groan* paper bag lunch in your new bag and….

Whoa, hold up… You’re about to enter Massage Therapy or Esthetics school, the days of grudgingly boarding the school bus are over. The six page essays on topics you don’t enjoy? Over.

This isn’t just your first day of school, it is the first day that you pursue a learning path that you love! You’re about to embark on a journey that includes facials, massage, spa treatments, great people and hopefully some fun. Did we mention that you’ll receive and give massages/ facials to other students (think flawless skin by the end of the semester). You may be feeling some pre-school jitters; that’s normal, but don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

Here’s a little “inspo” and information to start off your semester at the Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics and Massage Therapy.

Do you have an Instagram or Pinterest? Did you know there is a search function? Did you know that we’re on both? (ie. you should probably follow us: elizabethgrady_edu or Liz Grady School)

Searching through social media sites for inspiration is a great way to motivate yourself if you’re feeling a little nervous at the beginning of the semester.

Some of our favorite Instagram accounts to follow are:




Pinterest: This only brushes the surface of the Pinterest sphere, we’ve compiled some amazing boards ranging from Spa room inspiration to creative makeup ideas.
