Do I need a license to practice?
The only exception to this rule is a medical license.
You need a medical certificate if you have a doctor’s note.
Can I get an appointment on a Saturday?
Yes, it’s an exception to the Sunday or Saturday restrictions.
You can schedule your appointment as long as you’re at least 14 days in advance.
Is it possible to schedule my appointment on Sunday?
If you are a new business owner, there are three different types of licensed spa owners that can offer a Sunday appointment: the Certified Spa Group (CSG), Certified Spa Manager (CSM), and Certified Spa Attendant (CSA).
The CSG offers weekend appointments from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm on Sundays, but you can also schedule an appointment by phone, online, or by fax.
You may also schedule your visit by email.
You should know that you’ll need a referral from your doctor, so please make sure to tell your doctor about your appointment.
Is there a minimum age to apply for a spa license?
Yes and no.
For the purposes of a license, you must be at least 18 years old.

The CSM license requires you to be 18 years or older, while the CSA license requires a minimum of 21 years.
How long do my appointments last?
Your appointment will take at least two hours.
Your appointment can be shorter, but the length of time depends on the type of treatment you’re offering.

You might need to schedule a few hours in advance for some treatments.
Can you have an open heart surgery or facial surgery?
However you can’t have a laser surgery, which requires an appointment at least 30 minutes in advance and a total cost of at least $5,000.
