Your feet take a beating. Plus, if you happen to be carrying extra weight on your frame, your feet get the brunt of it. The average person takes about 8,000 steps a day which adds up over a lifetime.

Whether you go to our spa or do your own pedicures, there are health benefits in properly maintaining your feet. Cutting, clipping and cleaning your nails prevents nails from growing inward and causing infection. The elimination of dirt and bacteria from your feet will also help prevent nail diseases and disorders and helps eliminate foot odor. Nobody wants foot odor.

Exfoliation, or the sloughing off of dead skin cells will prevent the cells from accumulating and causing bunions or corns, which can be painful. Removal of the dead skins c also helps nee skin cell growth.

Probably the most enjoyable part of our spa pedicure is the massage. The lotion and/or oils used in the massage moisturize the newly exfoliated skin, and massaging promotes circulation in the calves and feet. It can reduce foot pain from being on one’s feet all day and can help maintain the health and performance of the muscles. And let’s face it,  time out  at Amy’s Day Spa for a pedicure can reduce stress!
