Spending some extra time pampering your feet and toes feels wonderful and gets you ready to put your best foot forward in your favorite sandals. There are also physical benefits to getting a pedicure on a regular schedule.
While your manicurist/pedicurist is working on your feet, they are doing more than just painting your toenails. By removing the dead skin and calluses, your nail technician is helping to improve the appearance as well as your comfort. Having calluses on your feet can cause uneven pressure when you walk or stand that can also lead to the pain if you are on your feet all day.
The massage in a pedicure or manicure is one of the most important parts. Massaging certain spots on someone's foot sends signals to other parts of the body to encourage overall health improvement anywhere in the body. Depending on the amount of pressure, the area being worked on, and the ailment of concern you can see results from eyes to liver to solar plexus.
Leaving the salon with pretty toes may seem like the only reward you get, but you are also gaining a good mood and better health. Besides, it never hurts to have pretty toes.
