A pedicure is a way to improve the look of your feet, and their nails. It is actually
a manicure for the feet. The word pedicure comes from the Latin words pes that means foot,
and cura that means care. It may also mean the care of the feet and toenails. A pedicure
could be helpful as it could prevent nail diseases and nail disorders.
The history of pedicures dates back from ancient Egypt. A statue of a pharaoh's official was
noted as representing pedicures and manicures.
A pedicure could benefit you in many ways. It would surely help you by keeping up with your
feet and would also prevent any nail diseases or nail disorders. Especially if you have diabetes
or you are unable to take care of yourself, you can go and ask someone else and they could do it
for you. Plus it would also make your feet look better.
For those suffering from diabetes, it's very significant you tell your nail technician that
you are diabetic, so your tech will be extra careful with the implements, so as to not cut the
client (diabetics at times have trouble clotting and healing after a cut or bruise).
Feet, leg, hand, and arm massages are a significant part of pedicures
and manicures. This technique would certainly help relax your client,
and possibly keep them coming back to you. When giving a foot massage
you must be firm but gentle.
Foot reflexology has been extensively used while giving the foot massage. Also, you could massage
with hot stones in your hands, and use special creams, which have menthol in them to help rejuvenate the foot.
