The Importance of Physiology in the Beauty Industry


About the Course
The purpose of this course is to explain the importance of physiology to beauty industry professionals regarding the effects of relevant services and the physical stress that workers within the field can experience. This course focuses on the physiology of the human body, which is significant within the practice of cosmetologists and other service providers who perform facials and massages and in the possible consequences of their labor. For clients, facials and massage services create physiological effects by stimulating tissues and, simultaneously, body systems. These effects can be harnessed to promote positive outcomes. Also, prolonged standing and repetitive movements that beauty industry professionals endure can promote adverse physiological impacts on the body systems, such as the skeletal and circulatory systems. For these reasons, it is not just important but imperative for cosmetologists to be aware of the physiological aspects of services and to utilize preventive measures to minimize associated occupational disorders that can occur while they work.
