Is It a Callus or a Corn?

They come with the presence of foot and toe deformalities, there i...

One of the most important questions we should be asking ourselves is "What is bing used on my feet?" and "How is that being cleaned?"

 

We love our spas and our nail techs... But.... Are they following best practice guidelines for foot care tools?

 

Have you ever been soaking in your comfy massage chair, while soaking your feet in a tub that has just sprayed in between clients and your now sharing whatever was in the tubes of that system. Not Fun and scary fo...

It is the DREADED ingrown nail. The one that hurts even if the sheets just barely come across it. It throbs. It is its own entity lol.

There are just so many options out there.

First and foremost, see a physician! Especially if its infected or oozing... It may be time for a antibiotic and then we can start.

Our business uses steam sterilized and individually packaged tools, ALWAYS. Why? because why in the hell would you ever want to risk your toe, foot or ebven your life!!! ...

Posted on 15 April, 2019 at 13:10 Comments comments (0)

Not just a great looking sandal! But a comfortable one. I love them. I already have 3 of the styles. It is true you pay for what you get.  Biotime sandals arent overly expensive( 50.00-110.00), but they are not your dime store sandal either. As foot professional we have to look at the sole of a shoe. ASK YOURSELF??? Does this actually support my foot? This is the time of year I cringe looking at the cheap sandals peope are wea...

We see ALL types and conditions of feet.

All to often its really sad :( We have so many clients express that they have lived for years with unsightly or painful feet as they were embarrassed and did not know who could help them. We have had many people leave our offices in tears as the miraculous makover. Sometimes we laugh and notice they couold probably go a whole shoe size smaller now.
