And, that’s a familiar problem with electrology schools in general. They usually teach, promote and sell ONE particular type of machine/method and, to make their point, disparage all other methods. Is it any wonder that we STILL, after all these decades, are antagonistic to those using “other methods” we don’t understand.
I can say that, while the school I went to is a distributor for a particular brand of machine (though we weren't forced to buy that brand) and focused mostly on thermolysis in practice, we spent an equal amount of lecture time on galvanic and blend. There was a multiple needle galvanic machine present (in fact, a lot of machines from the entire history of electrolysis, though I don't know if they were all in working order) and we were encouraged to at least try doing blend before we finished school.
I'm a firm believer in using what I feel is the best tool for a particular job and use all three in my practice (though my use of straight galvanic is very limited since I don't do enough of it to invest in a multiple needle machine).
That said, you also get out of school what you are willing to put into it and there were a lot of students that did the bare minimum, if that. I got to school and looked it as a learning opportunity, where I asked if I could get all of the toughest clients and while most students didn't want to work for more than 15 minutes at a time, I was doing multiple hour clients and even took day long sessions. I wouldn't be surprised if half the students I went to school with never even went into practice.
