Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t enjoy getting a pedicure in Ottawa? If so, I think you’ve been lied to. After a long day, is there anything better than a nice long foot soak and massage? Let’s face it, being pampered feels good – actually, scratch that, it feels GREAT! But sometimes work can get busy and it’s hard to find the time to get in for your regular pedicure appointment. With winter coming, you might even try to justify that “no one will see them anyways,” but here are some reasons why you should go out for that pedicure in Ottawa as soon as possible:
Early Detection and Prevention of Infections
Seeing as you may not examine your feet that often, it can be difficult to detect early signs of corns, bunions and fungal infections; however, during your pedicure in Ottawa, a spa professional may be able to detect early signs. Seeing as these conditions are easier to treat the sooner they are noticed, early detection is imperative.
Pedicures can also reduce your chances of corns, bunions and fungal infections. By exfoliating your feet, you avoid the accumulation of dead skin cells, which can cause painful corns and bunions, while also stimulating the growth of new healthy cells. As well, the cleaning clipping and filing helps eliminate dirt and bacteria that can cause uncomfortable fungal infections and foot odours. Perfectly pedicured toes are also moisturized, meaning they are less likely to crack and/or blister.
Trying to balance family, friends, chores, work and/or school isn’t easy and unfortunately getting caught up in stress is. A good pedicure will provide you that relaxation you’ve been in desperate need of. The massage therapy will help ease tension in your body AND your mind. After a long day, sometimes you just need to treat yourself.
Improves Blood Flow and Circulation
One of the best parts about a pedicure in Ottawa is undoubtedly the foot and calf massage. Besides relieving tension, the massaging aspect of a pedicure also helps improve your health! Massage therapy helps to improve circulation and blood flow – which can relieve pain, help your blood carry vital nutrients throughout your body and assist your body in distributing heat. It is also beneficial for stimulating lymph flow. Our lymph nodes (on our legs located behind our knees) help purify our bodies by processing and flowing toxins back to our heart to get cleaned. Some also suggest drinking liquids post-massage to help further flush out toxins and cleanse the body.
If you’ve been putting off that pedicure in Ottawa, it’s time to treat those tootsies! After all the places your feet take you, it’s time for you to pamper them – and improve your health while doing so!
