BYATM Practitioner Orientation Prerequisites: Esthetician/Cosmetologist license or Doctor/Nurse Medical Practice September 25th 10:30 am - 4:30 pm February 12, 2019 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
$360 includes enough product for about 30 facials as well as our 50 page training manual
This is a pre-requisite to attend our Apprentice Circles ***If you cannot make one of these dates, we can offer private orientation sessions at an additional cost.
Practitioner Orientation is the best way to start bringing our holistic methods into your services. In the morning, you will see a demonstration of our unique Holistic Spa Facial. The Holistic Spa Facial is one hour of relaxing luxury without a single artificial chemical or preservative. Learn how and when to use herbs for infusions, compressions, or steaming as well as the basics of our Facial Point Stimulation techniques.
After a lunch break and meditation, we will demonstrate the Functional Facial. This facial (also free form artificial chemicals and preservatives) is a more in-depth way of meeting the skin where it is at focusing on bringing relief or resolving acute symptoms. (For more chronic issues, you will have to attend more of our workshops—we can’t teach you it all in one day!) You will also learn the art of using some of the modalities you may have in your practice (Phototherapy, Dien Chan, gua sha, advanced exfoliation techniques) as part of a holistic facial that addresses skin function.
In addition to the Facial Starter Kit, you will have the opportunity to purchase a second set of our Facial Point Stimulation Wands at a discounted price of $48. This offer is limited to 1 extra set per practitioner.
Includes Facial Starter Kit (Enough for at least 30 facials) Available only as part of the New Practitioner Orientation
$80 (Includes samples and product take-homes) This professional workshop starts with an overview of BYATM Product Principles and the art of crafting a holistic skin care regimen. We will then go into BYATM Product Education first for Functional Skincare and then for Advanced Skincare. We end the day with a lesson on how to teach rituals (masks and massage) for at-home care. Space is limited so please pre-register for the Open House, Practitioner Orientation and Regimen & Rituals Professional Workshop soon!
BYATM Advanced Masterclasses for All Skin Care Practitioners
Prerequisites: Esthetician/Cosmetologist license or Doctor/Nurse Medical Practice *You do not need to be an herbalist or use our products in your service room in order to take these classes or learn and use these techniques.
2 weeks prior to the meeting, you will be given access to an online classroom and are expected to complete specific tasks prior to the class. For each workshop, you will receive a printed guide as well as a student kit.
Facial Point Stimulation 12/18/2018 $285 Includes 4 Stainless hot/cold Facial Point Stimulation Wands, Workbook, and Training
Facial Point Stimulation is similar to acupressure or reflexology in that using a point on the surface of one part of the body sends a reflexive message to the subtle body and resonates within certain organ systems. It is a time-proven energetic modality that allows the practitioner and the client to focus on internal balance in the body’s quest for total equanimity within all organ systems, increasing overall vitality. We developed this method over many years of clinical practice to simplify obfuscated ancient teachings and return healing back to the self.
Advanced Facial Point Stimulation (includes Fascia & Lymphatic Manipulation) 2/5/2019 $325 Includes 4 crystal massage tools, Workbook, and Training
Fascia & Lymphatic Manipulation is a modern method developed at Brooklyn Herborium to pinpoint the most effective use of Gua Sha (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and enhance it with very basic manual lymphatic drainage techniques in order to achieve lasting, gorgeous results without resorting to painful, invasive, or heroic means. Paired with elemental energy, it can be focused on lifting saggy skin, evening overall skin tone, and reducing puffiness, as well as minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and old scars.
Herbal Infusion Therapies: Compression, Clearing Serum, Integrity Biome Rehabilitation 3/26/2019 $640 (Includes 10 Organic Cotton Compression Towels, 5 (4 oz) bags of Herbs, 1 oz clearing Serum, 2 oz Integrity Biome Mask, 1 wooden mixing bowl with scoop, 1 Stainless Steel Herb Press) Workbook, and Training
Herbal Compression is a long-standing traditional method of applying nourishment and herbal actions directly to where it is needed by using hot water and appropriate steeping times to break apart the cell walls of the plant material and release the nutrients into water. Organic cotton towels absorb this enhanced water and are applied directly to the face with a compression massage for a relaxing treatment that allows the herbal properties to penetrate deep into the skin’s tissues while messaging integumentary glands and vessels.
Clearing serum combines the amino acid matrix of real silk with the potent minerals of real pearls to strengthen the structural integrity of the skin, encouraging production of collagen and other necessary metabolic functions. The Wild Cranberry, Raspberry, Blueberry, Apple, and Rose hip provide nourishment that can only come from the fruit in it’s entirety, while the small-molecule acids of these fruits can penetrate into stagnant oil glands, loosen impacted oil-based debris, and gently remind cells to behave their best, resulting in radiant, clear skin.
The Integrity Biome Mask is instrumental in rehabilitating and revitalizing a topical biome that may have found itself in the precarious position of having an overabundance of malicious microorganisms and a deficiency of beneficial flora. Sometimes, the external biome (the gut turned inside out…) gets a bit out of whack--perhaps due to medication, diet, the use of hand sanitizers, or simply a change in humidity. The concept of re-vitalizing your external biome may seem unusual at first--but it will grow on you. Homeopathic Phototherapy 5/28/2019 $1600 - includes 6 Portable LED Wands, 2 sets of goggles, Workbook, and Training If you have our photon wands and trained with us before, you may review this class at no additional cost.
We have been working with phototherapy in conjunction with our own Between You and the Moon Skin Care line for over 10 years. It is complimentary to both Conventional Skin Care and Functional Skin Care and can be utilized while re-building the skin’s health as well as when a more active catalyst is needed to facilitate the return of the skin to its natural state of health and beauty. We find that taking the subtle body approach to using photons is more effective for lasting results than the more popular “allopathic” approach.

Apprentice Circles for BYATM Practitioners & Apprentices
Here is a chance for all Holistic Practitioners who use BYATM in their services to become an apprentice for a day! Prior to every Apprentice Circle, you will be given a list of things to have read or videos to watch. It is worth your while to do so. Every Circle session has cards with diagrams and descriptions of exactly what you are expected to get out of it. We try to document Apprentice Circles with audio, video, and handouts and recaps sent out within the next couple of weeks. These are not professional-quality (yet), but very useful. If you have interest in joining one of our circles, but do not meet the requirements, please email us and we will try to accommodate you. Prerequisite: Practitioner Orientation or currently using BYATM products in a clinical practice Cost $180 per session (Included as part of apprenticeship, attendance at all of them is required for Holistic Aesthetician Apprentices)

Holistic Aesthetician Apprenticeship
We have been nurturing and mentoring holistic aestheticians since 2010. If our processes and methods speak to you and you want to delve deeply into our world, an apprenticeship may be the best way to do it. Apprenticeship is not the same as taking classes. You must be willing to invest yourself, work hard, and respect the mentors who are taking time from their busy practices to pass this wisdom on to you.
Can I use Brooklyn Herborium's products in my spa or treatment room without being an apprentice? Yes. There are many ways to work with Brooklyn Herborium and the Between You The Moon products. You do not need to participate in the apprenticeship in order to become a retailer or use BYATM products in your treatment room or spa. There are many ways to work with us, depending on what your needs are:
Retail: We offer a large variety of products for sale in your retail shop or as home care for your facial service clients. See our attached wholesale application and price list.
“And…in addition to…” We recognize that there are many pathways to health and beauty and we would be honored to be part of your journey. Our methods are inclusive of many other modalities and can easily be worked into your current skin care offerings in order to serve your clients better. You can set up a spa consultation with one of our specialists to help you determine what is going to work best for you.
We offer a Complete Spa Service Room Package that gets you set up immediately with enough product to supply one service room with 80-120 of either the Holistic Spa Facial* or a Functional Skin Care Service*. There are no artificial chemicals or ingredients in any of these products.
I currently work in a place that uses a different product line. Will I be able to use what I learn with other products or service protocols? Yes. Of course, we only use our Function Skin Care Line during the apprenticeship (because it is awesome) but the knowledge that you will gain is universal. You will then have the insight to apply holistic methods to everything you touch as well as a very clear lens to determine if something is truly holistic and beneficial or if it simply appears that way. (Reminder: Loudest does not equal wisest...) Also, if you have current knowledge and experience in other healing modalities such as acupuncture, gua sha, reiki, dien chan/m, hot stone therapy (etc) or have interest in pursuing them in the future you will be provided with a base in which to insert these methods to benefit your clients immediately. Will I learn how to create my own skin care line? No. That is another course for another year... You will, however, be required to spend at least four hours in hands on product-making in our workshop to fully complete the apprenticeship. Can I do distance learning or take the apprenticeship online? If you are accepted as an apprentice, you will be provided study materials that will accompany your education that you are expected to spend about 10 hours per week outside of the weekly meeting practicing (either in your hands or in your head). The weekly meetings are important for reinforcement and for learning the specifics of hands-on. Without that, it is not an apprenticeship, but online learning or courses (which are lovely and recommended, but we don't offer.) An apprenticeship requires that you make connections and are willing to delve deeper, not necessarily wider. Do I have to be an aesthetician? We welcome a wide variety of professionals to use our products, understanding that each practitioner is unique and has unique needs.
Can I come work for you? Yes, we do hire out of our apprenticeship programs (both Herbalcrafters and Holistic Aestheticians). No, it is not guaranteed.
Thank you for visiting. We are so glad that you stopped by! We hope that the information gleaned here helps to make your transition to beautiful, healthy skin the natural way more pleasant and complete. Please email us or set up an appointment for a consultation if you have any questions!
