Before you put on your sandals …
The pedicure treatment begins with bathing the feet in water with a specially designed liquid. Massage is important as it improves blood circulation, transport of nutrients and removes toxins responsible for diseases. Then, with the help of a milling machine, remove excess keratinized epidermis. We trim the nails giving them the right shape, use a special gel to soften the cuticles and with a wooden stick remove their excess and massage the feet. The massage can be performed with the use of an appropriate foot cream. We choose it depending on the needs of the skin. Its task is to smooth and moisturize the feet. Each pedicurist at the beauty salon will advise us on appropriate treatments for our feet.

Or maybe a foot massage?

Acupressure massage, focused on the soles of the feet, combined with massage of the toes, ankles, calves and thighs. All this with the use of oil extracts of mint, eucalyptus and aloe and a lotion containing menthol, camphor, beeswax, clove and cinnamon extract. Perfect to remove the feeling of “heavy, tired legs”. Detoxifies the immune system and improves sleep quality. Very popular also due to its beneficial effect on the circulatory system. Regularly used – reduces the risk of civilization diseases causing damage to the bloodstream. These types of cosmetic procedures have a healing and therapeutic effect. Foot acupressure, otherwise known as reflexology, it was known and practiced in deeply ancient times.
There is evidence that it was used in China even five thousand years ago. Also in India and Egypt confirmation was found that the practice of medicine practiced compressing certain areas of the feet for health purposes. This method can help detect the disease and solve our health problems. A painful, sensitive point on the foot informs us about a disturbance in the energy flow in the part corresponding to a given zone. If any organ or system is unwell, we feel pain in this area during massaging, and sometimes even a physical abnormality (thickening, redness). The more a given point hurts during the mass, the more loaded and dysfunctional the body part corresponding to a given receptor is.
Although some cents of treatments are not too cheap, it is worth investing in your health and well-being!
