The word manicure means 'care of the hands', and the purpose of this treatment is to
improve the appearance of the nails by cleansing, nourishing and beautifying them.
A manicure involves shaping and moisturising the nails, care of the cuticles, a relaxing arm and hand massage
and enamelling or buffing the nails.
The feet take a lot of strain and stress every day, and although they are not on show like the hands,
they benefit greatly a pedicure treatment. Pedicures are more popular in the summer months because
feet are on display.
However, feet need to be looked after all year round as most of the time they are enclosed in shoes,
socks and tights often becoming hot and swollen.
The treatment includes the same techniques as a manicure and includes a soothing foot bath.
