The Mii Advanced Adapted Natural Nail Care Treatment course is in collaboration with The Power of Touch (TPOT).

The comprehensive online course from Gerrard International and Susan Gerrard Training Academy will build professionals’ confidence in delivering self-care services for clients undergoing cancer treatment, and after their treatment is complete.

Developed over the last three years with Michelle Hammond, founder of TPOT, which offers accredited courses for beauty therapists and spas to support the wellbeing of clients facing conditions such as disease and trauma, the course is fully self-paced and requires you to be a Gerrard International account holder to enrol.
