Posture Podiatry Foot & Nail care

About Foot & Nail Care

“When your feet hurt, you hurt all over” – Socrates

How true it is that a small stone in your shoe can stop you in your tracks. So too can a corn or painful callus prevent you from enjoying life.

Skin is clever. It is it able to protect itself where there are high areas of pressure by gradually getting thicker.

Let’s take for example one of your toes getting squashed inside your fancy shoes. The skin realises that it needs to protect itself, so it gets thicker. The only problem is, as the skin gets thicker, so too does the pressure between the skin and your shoes! This sets off a perpetual cause and effect reaction where the skin gets so thick it forms a ‘plug’ which can be very painful.

You may be familiar with the feeling of a stone embedded in your shoe rubbing on the very bony prominence that makes your foot the most painful… and it just won’t go away!

The good news is that corns and calluses can be quickly and painlessly removed – much like having a haircut, the skin is dead and you won’t feel a thing!

The result? Immediately your feet feel wonderful, and you feel you can float all the way home.

What to expect in your consult?

On arrival, you’ll be greeted with a smile and invited to enjoy a complimentary mineral foot bath with essential oils or a beautiful herbal tea. (Say yes when offered… we love spoiling our clients!)

You’ll meet your podiatrist, who will listen to your history, work with you to perform a thorough assessment and begin treatment to get to the bottom of your concerns.

Your time is valuable, so you can complete your client forms either in person or online before your appointment to make things run smoothly. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask. We’re here to help!

We’ll stay in touch by sending personal emails or SMS (not bulk spam), and also ask for feedback after your appointments so we can continue to improve our service to you.
