Benefits of a Manicure or Pedicure
A manicure or pedicure treatment is a deeply relaxing treatment that any person can have and benefit from. It makes your hand and feet look better and also prevents nail diseases and disorders. It aids stronger nails and is deeply condition for the cuticle and nail itself.
What to expect during a Manicure or Pedicure
There is much more to a manicure and pedicure than just filing your nails and adding a coat or two of polish. The treatment I offer will include exfoliating the skin to remove dead cells, which softens and smooths the skin and stimulates regeneration. Dead skin are removed from the feet with a rasp, which not only makes your feet look much better – it makes them feel much better too. Many aches and pains in feet result from standing on calluses and uneven areas all day.
Cuticles are trimmed and treated with special hydrating products. Creams are used to massage the forearm and hand, as well as the lower leg and foot. This not only moisturizes them, it also improves blood circulation, important for skin rejuvenation. Pain from arthritis and other ailments is also relieved by the professional massage you will receive.
I am trained to recognise nail diseases and disorders such as fungal diseases, and can help you treat them by recommending over the counter products you can use, or advise you that you need to seek medical attention. Some nail diseases may result in being unable to provide your treatment, as some diseases are highly infectious.
Manicures and pedicures are a deeply relaxing treatment both suitable for men as well as women.
Benefits of a Hand Massage
A hand massage helps improve circulation, relieves tension and increases flexibility in the hands, fingers and wrists. A hand massage, since it uses lotions or oils, is also a great way to rejuvenate the skin. A hand massage is very pleasurable, as well as beneficial.
What is Paraffin wax and what are the benefits?
Paraffin may have been the hot oily wax used for massages by ancient Romans. However, modern paraffin was discovered by German chemist Carl Ludwig von Reichenbach in the early 1800s.
Paraffin wax is melted in a special warmer or double boiler until it is a clear or translucent liquid. Hands may be dipped directly into the warmer, or the liquid wax may be poured into plastic bags. Each hand is slipped into a bag of paraffin. The hands are covered in the wax for several minutes.
Paraffin wax retains heat, and this heat increases the skin's circulation and opens pores on the hands, allowing the lubricants in the wax to penetrate and soften the skin.
The heat provided by melted paraffin wax is absorbed by the skin and tissue on which it is placed, making it beneficial for people suffering from arthritis or other joint or muscle pain.
