Firstly your therapist will check you feet for any problems that may prevent the treatment being performed such as verucca’s or athletes foot. Your feet are then treated to a relaxing soak. Feet are worked on one at a time, cuticles are softened and the nails shaped. Nails are always filed in one direction only and if cut with nail clippers or scissors they should be cut straight across, to avoid in-grown toe nails. Cuticles can then be trimmed and feet treated to an invigorating exfoliating scrub to remove the dead skin cells. Any hard skin on the soles of the feet can be sloughed off using a pedicure file or foot rasp. Within the luxury pedicure the lower legs and feet are now gently massaged in an upward direction to reduce the build up of toxins and to reduce water retention. All that remains is to choose a polish!
