Our spa packages offer amazing treatments like massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures. While many of these treatments help the way you look, they can also help the way you feel physically and mentally. Here are just some of the many ways that pedicures are good for your health.
They prevent infections
There are a few ways you can get infections in your feet. If you don’t moisturize on a regular basis, the dry skin on your feet is more prone to infection because cracks form in the skin more easily. Additionally, the clipping, cleaning, and cutting of toenails that takes place during pedicures prevents the nails from growing inward and causing an infection.
They promote circulation
During a pedicure, you receive a massage of your feet and lower legs. The massaging helps promote the circulation of your blood. Increased blood circulation can prevent things like pain, arthritis, and varicose veins. Healthy blood flow also helps evenly distribute heat throughout your body. Finally, increased blood flow can help your lymph nodes clear toxins out of your body.
They improve nail health
Speaking of blood flow, pedicures increase blood flow in your nails as well. Not only does the buffing make your nails shiny and tidy, it can increase the flow of nutrients that would otherwise be unavailable to your nails.
They promote mental health
Finally, pedicures help promote your mental health. Just like massages, pedicures can help reduce stress. Stress is known as the “silent killer” because it is the root cause of so many illnesses and diseases that people experience. Pedicures are very relaxing, putting your mind at ease. Pedicures can also boost your confidence because they make your feet look great, so mental health benefits in that category as well.
In 2016 alone, consumers made 179 million visits to spas across America, generating more than $163 billion in estimated revenue, according to an International Spa Association U.S. Industry Study. So many people are going to spas and reaping the many benefits that they provide. If you’ve never been to the spa, or even if you have, it’s time to go and get yourself a pedicure, as well as other body treatments, so you can help yourself look and feel great.
