We welcome you to learn and connect with wellness therapies grounded in local tradition, and grown with innovative science

Our main goal at the Academy is to train the next generation of wellness professionals in Ghana and bring local healing practices and innovative spa science together.

Our Philosophy

The Academy was founded to fill the lack of professional spa training in Ghana. Healing practices all over the world have contributed heavily to various professional spa certifications, and we believe local therapeutic traditions in Ghana and the rest of the African continent have a lot to offer the world in this regard.

This is why the W Academy blends VTCT accredited courses with wellness traditions from all over the continent and the world to create uniquely competitive spa technicians.

What We Offer Students

The Wellness Institute offers you the chance to acquire a recognised, grounded, holistic education in Wellness Science to rival trainings in other sectors. Our graduates go onto work as Spa Professionals, Beauty Therapists, Aesthetic Technicians and various other highly qualified positions in a variety of institutions.

Your certification from the Academy at the Wellness Institute is a key to unlocking your future as a Wellness Professional.

Qualities of a Great Wellness Professional

The Wellness Academy’s programmes are very challenging and competitive, requiring students to acquire a deep understanding of human anatomy and chemical reactions, among other academically demanding subjects. To this end, we strongly recommend future students be passionate about their learning and committed to demanding study.

An ideal future Wellness Specialist already has a strong academic background after Senior High School, and is keen on learning the best practices in the science of health and wellness.
