I am a Foot health practitioner. I studied with The SMAE institute and gained my diploma to practice in 2011 and have run a successful business for the last 12 years. I am more advanced with foot and nail care than a beautician. I am qualified to see to many problems that you may be suffering from such as corns, callus, thickened nail, verrucae, fungal nail. When you book a pedicure with me, I may also address other problems you may have, unlike a beautician.

Below are the two most popular treatments.
A spa pedicure is a treatment that cleans and removes the dead skin cells from the feet and toenails. It helps prevent nail diseases and infections. The pedicure also reshapes long or misshapen toe nails and finishes them up with either a clear protective polish or a fashionable colored polish. This treatment leaves your toes and feet looking beautiful, refreshed and well groomed. However, pedicures are not just limited to nails themselves; the feet and legs are also cared for and moisturized during this treatment.
Having a spa pedicure is a great way to indulge yourself with a relaxing treatment that not only helps you feel your best but also look your very best and protect your feet.

Trimming and Shaping Your Nails
Caroline your foot care professional will first trim & shape your toe nails. It is important to have consistent, even nails with no frays or slivers. When Caroline shapes your toe nails she will also pay close attention to the sides of your nails to help prevent hang nails or in grown toe nails which can become sore or infected if not groomed properly. A more popular shape for toenails is the square oval. This is a soft combination of the square nail and the curved sides of the oval. It is a very popular style because it looks good on most feet. The square oval doesn’t catch on socks and is easier to wear on a daily basis
It’s important to care for your cuticles because of the close proximity to your nails. It’s easy to forget about your cuticles but they are a protective barrier for your nails and prevent bacteria from sneaking into the nail bed and protect the nails from infection. Caroline will soften the cuticles by soaking them in a warm bath. Then depending on the state of your cuticles Caroline will remove excess cuticles, push back your cuticles or do a combination of both.
Caroline will also pay special attention to your callouses on your toes and feet. Caroline will use special lotions and devices to remove dead skin cells and soften the hardened skin areas. The callous contouring treatment will leave your feet soft and supple.
Caroline will give you a soothing and healing foot massage as well. This will relax your sore and tired muscles of your feet and legs. Your feet have are where your reflex points end in your body and relate directly to other parts and systems in your body. A foot massage not only relieves fatigue and relaxes your sore muscles but the stimulation of theses areas can have a beneficial and relaxing effect on your entire body.
Warm Paraffin Wax Treatment
This can be added to your Pedicure . Please request this when you book your appointment as we need to allocate an extra 30 minutes to the treatment time. Please add an extra £15,00
Caroline will follow up your massage with a luxurious Paraffin wax treatment. The wax will create a seal and will allow moisture to penetrate deep into your skin while the heat opens your pores and leaves your skin to be soft, smooth and supple.
The last step is to apply your chosen polish colour to your nails along with a strong base coat and finishing coat to give you long lasting, beautiful natural nails. If you do not want coloured polish, the manicurist can place a strong protective clear coat on your nails to strengthen your nails without the colour. Many men come in for pedicures but want a clear coat rather than a coloured coat of nail polish or none.
