A treatment consists of a soak, buffing of calluses, cuticle work, nail clipping and a foot massage.
There are many benefits to properly maintaining your feet. Cutting, clipping and cleaning of the nails prevents nails from growing inward and causing infection. The elimination of dirt and bacteria from your feet will also help prevent nail diseases and disorders as well as help eliminate foot odour.
Exfoliation, or the sloughing off of dead skin cells, prevents the cells from accumulating and causing bunions or corns, which can be painful. Removal of dead skin cells also encourages newer skin growth which creates a smoother, more appealing foot.
The most enjoyable part of foot care treatment is the massage. The lotion and/or oils used in the massage moisturize the newly exfoliated skin, and massaging promotes circulation in the calves and feet. It can reduce foot pain from being on one's feet all day and can help maintain the health and performance of the muscles.
