When you visit a nail salon for a pedicure, chances are you’ll get a foot massage along with it.
But have you ever wondered why these massages are included alongside pedicures to begin with? Contrary to popular belief, pedicure massages offer much more than just stress relief to people in need of a self-care day.
Here are some reasons why massages are an important part of our pedicures, and why you should visit Paua Beauty Lounge for pedicures in the Russian Hill area.
5 health benefits of pedicure massages
Including foot massages in each of our pedicure packages allows us to focus on the overall health and condition of your feet, rather than just making sure that your toenails are clean and well-kept — which can sometimes be the case at other nail salons.
And as you probably already have experienced for yourself, foot and leg massages help with stress reduction, relaxation, and overall well-being. Meanwhile, the oils used to massage your feet help to soften and moisturize your skin — which is especially helpful for those who don’t have the time to care for their feet as often as they would like.
Pedicure massages also provide much-needed relief for those with aching joints and muscles, especially for older customers or those who work while standing for most of their shift. If you have any foot problems, a massage can sometimes help to resolve the issue as well.
However, there’s one more benefit to pedicure massages — one that becomes especially important for our older customers.
An overlooked benefit of pedicure massages for older customers
These massages are especially helpful for older people who have trouble maintaining the look and health of their feet on their own. Pedicure massages ensure that seniors get sufficient blood flow to their legs and feet.
But that’s not all.
In these cases, cosmetologists aren’t just responsible for keeping their feet clean. These massages also allow us to check on the health of your feet and check for any potential issues, all while being inconspicuous about it. This is a great time to check for things like ingrown toenails, broken toes, and more.
As you can see, your cosmetologists don’t just help you look good. We’re here to make sure you feel great too.
