June 16, 2012 (Poway) – Internationally-acclaimed Bellus Academy has become the first beauty school in the world to incorporate WaveMotion™ technology into its curriculum, This ground-breaking move places Bellus’ aspiring therapists on the cutting edge of wellness treatments as they learn and adapt various bodywork techniques using WaveMotion’s™ bodywork table, the latest technological advancement available.

Developed by Matthias Kuehl, managing director of Clap Tzu, the WaveMotion™ table is a massage table that can effortlessly rock, tilt and rotate to create a fluid sensation of weightlessness for clients as though they are floating in water. The gentle rhythmic movements created then disperse energy throughout the body like the waves of a water treatment, inducing a deep state of unmatched relaxation. Pain relief, increased circulation and a heightened sense of well-being, all have been seen in WaveMotion™ treatments. As a result, therapists are able to easily achieve optimal results in a shorter amount of time with less physical effort.
“The wave table is a revolutionary wellness solution for both the massage therapist and for the guest,” said Lynelle Lynch, Bellus Academy President. “The table allows increased flexibility and stretching, while rotating and providing ‘wave’ motions with the therapists for the ultimate in a relaxing and deep massage.”
The WaveMotion™ table is currently being used in only the most exclusive spas, such as Mii amo in Sedona, Arizona. This addition to Bellus Academy’s already innovative curriculum cements their status as one of the premier beauty schools in the world, where graduates are continually and consistently being hired by top-tier salons and spas.
