The Foot

The foot is a well designed and engineered extremity of the human body that is composed of an integrated structure of muscles, tendons and joints that are designed to support body movement.

The health of the foot is dictated by many factors that include footwear, posture and overall body movement. Lack of proper foot care may result in muscle fatigue, poor circulation, structural abnormalities resulting in pain and limited range of motion.

Medical Foot Care/Pedicure $60.00

Pedicure comes from the Latin words "pedis", meaning feet, and "cura", meaning care. The purpose of a pedicure is for the cosmetic and therapeutic treatment of the feet and toenails. Regular medical foot care is necessary for the health, welfare, maintenance and protection of the feet and toenails by using various treatments to rid them of skin and nail abnormalities.

Treatment

Treatment is administered in a private, relaxing environment on a comfortable esthetic table or zero-gravity chair. Our Certified Foot Care Specialist uses a holistic approach to foot and nail abnormalities such as thick nails, uninfected ingrown toenails, nail fungus, athlete's foot, plantar warts, calluses and corns. The practitioner uses various (autoclaved) tools, along with natural products to address problems of the feet and toenails and to assist in optimizing the overall function of the feet. A foot massage completes the overall assessment of the feet, moisturizes the skin, improves circulation, eases muscle tension and promotes a feeling of overall well-being for the client. Clients may request a natural nail buffing if time permits and depending on the health of the feet and nails.

Special, gentle care is given to the feet to protect and maintain optimal foot health and function. Foot care treatment will differ from person to person as no two feet are exactly alike so abnormalities will also vary. Seniors and people with diabetes benefit from foot care as there are many factors to consider such as vascular disorders, neurological disorders, compromised immunity to infection, arthritis, edema, metabolic disturbances, malnutrition and psychological disturbances.

Treatment

No matter which Signature Foot Treatment you select, your feet will thank you. To prepare your feet for this truly exquisite experience we start with a warm refreshing soak to soften the skin, relax the muscles and tendons and increase circulation. An aromatic exfoliant is applied to the feet and lower legs to remove dead skin cells, and invigorate and smooth the skin leaving your skin feeling revitalized. Your feet are then wrapped in scented warm towels to retain heat and maintain relaxation. An all natural cuticle softener is applied and the cuticles are gently pushed back as needed. This is followed by the application of a blend of therapeutic essential oils to strengthen the nails. The client is then reclined on a warm massage table to enjoy a soothing and relaxing foot and lower leg massage using a combination of reflexology, Swedish massage, acupressure, and gentle stretching techniques. A mask is then applied to nourish the skin, stimulate circulation and unclog pores. This process is aided by the use of high frequency to stimulate cell renewal. The safe, gentle oscillating and oxygenating power of high frequency electrical current has been shown to enhance blood circulation, increase collagen production, eliminate toxins and exfoliate dead skin cells. While the mask dries, the client may choose a scalp, facial, or neck and shoulder massage. Your Signature Foot Treatment concludes with the application of a hydrating moisturizer to protect, restore, and soften the skin.

Zone Therapy $75.00

Zone Therapy is based on a practice that divides the body into ten longitudinal zones corresponding to each of the ten toes. It is based on the concept that energy runs up and down between all the parts of the body through these zones. In order for the organs, muscles, nerves, glands and blood supply to work in harmony and at the optimum level for good health, the energy connection between the parts must be unrestricted and free-flowing.

In a Zone Therapy treatment a combination of traditional massage techniques, pressure, stretching, and manipulation are applied to the lower legs and feet, which stimulates the circulation and nerve impulses to promote energy flow and health throughout the zones of the body.

In addition to increasing circulation and promoting energy flow, specific body system support is offered with the application of therapeutic essential oils as follows:
  • Immune System Support: One or a combination of Lemon, Lavender and/or Thieves essential oils will be applied during the treatment to boost the immune system.

  • Digestive System Support: One or a combination of Ginger, Peppermint and/or Digize essential oils will be applied during treatment to support a healthy digestive system.

  • Respiratory System Support: One or a combination of Eucalyptus, Cinnamon Bark and/or RC essential oils will be applied during treatment to support a healthy respiratory system.

  • Nervous System Support: One or a combination of Cedarwood, Frankincense, an/or Valor essential oils will be applied during treatment to support a healthy nervous system.

  • Cardiovascular System Support: One or a combination of Ylang Ylang, Cypress and/or Panaway essential oils will be applied during treatment to support a healthy cardiovascular system.


Fire & Ice Foot Hydrotherapy (Wet Socks) $75.00

The Fire & Ice Foot Hydrotherapy is a 1 hour hydrotherapy and aromatherapy treatment that combines heat and cold to create a pumping action to increase blood circulation, stimulate the lymphatics, and boost the immune system.

The feet are first warmed with hot steaming towels or with a hot foot soak. Once the feet are warm, a wonderfully relaxing foot massage is provided with essential oil. Following this, cold wet cotton socks are applied. These are then covered with thick wool socks. The alternating of cold and hot creates a pumping mechanism in the body that stimulates your circulation and lymphatics.

The results are an invigorated immune system which helps to fend off illness, to reduce congestion and/or to provide pain relief including sinus and migraine headache. While the wet socks are activating the immune system a facial and scalp massage are provided.
