Manicure is one of our popular services. It involves treatment of the nails, cuticles and hands.
A full consultation will normally take place at the first treatment. This will establish the condition of the nails, cuticles and hands enabling our therapists to advise and select treatments accordingly.
It is also important for our therapists to understand your lifestyle as this may often contribute to the condition of the hands and nails.
There are certain conditions that may hinder a Manicure treatment. Our therapists will check for these and advise you on any action required. Coloured Nail enamel is not compulsory after a Manicure, there are options including French Manicure (natural base with a white tip painted on).
Natural nail treatments concentrate on the conditioning of the cuticle and nails. Products are designed to be applied on a regular basis and our therapists may advise a course of treatments if necessary.
There are a number of Manicure systems that will include skin treatments, removal of dead skin cells and moisturising packs. Whichever treatment you select it can be a very relaxing and social occasion.
It is a well-known fact that the majority of people do not look after their feet. We expect our feet to carry us through our lives, yet often forget that the footwear, posture and the demands we place upon them take their toll. The result can often be blisters, calluses, bunions and a build up of hard skin. All of these can be very painful and sometimes bring on infectious conditions if the skin is broken.
A professional pedicure cannot correct poor treatment of the feet, but it can help to control conditions such as hard skin and calluses, which can be extremely painful.
Treatment of hard skin, cuticles, nails and the feet will improve the overall performance and appearance. Foot massage will help soothe aching feet and nail varnish can be applied if desired.
A Beauty Therapist would not treat advanced conditions of hard skin and ingrown toenails; clients would be referred to Chiropodist.
