Morag Currin
Morag Currin believes success starts with knowledge. As the pioneer for Oncology Esthetics®, her focus is to prepare students to enter and excel in the field of this modality. She is constantly driven to new ideas to further enhance the basics of esthetics and what is currently taught so you can be assured of new content on a regular basis that is beneficial to both the spa professional and their clients.

Morag also specialises in building therapeutic relationships with equine partners to help facilitate growth from depression, anxiety, PTSD resulting from a cancer diagnosis. Cancer-related PTSD (CR-PTSD) can negatively affect a patient’s psychosocial and physical well-being during treatment and into survivorship. She offers both spa and non-spa modalities which are proven experiential/action-based forms of therapy, and they allow for the immediate integration of concepts in real-time.
