Getting a mani/pedi feels good, yes, and it definitely looks good, but did you know that there are actual health benefits to getting your nails done? It’s true, so quit justifying stopping in for a quick nail treatment and just do it, because professional nail treatment isn’t just good for making your nails look pretty on a keyboard—it’s good for your long-term health as well.
Increases Blood Flow
Manicures and pedicures always include exfoliating, moisturizing and cuticle treatments that all utilize a massage action. This massaging is not only relaxing, but it also helps to improve blood flow to the extremities. Increased blood flow means reduced pain and better distribution of heat throughout the body during the cold months.
Reduced Risk for Fungal Infections
I know, it isn’t pretty, but fungi often grow on toenails, especially when feet are frequently exposed to excess moisture. It often takes a few weeks for this infection to become noticeable once it’s made its home, but to a professional manicurist, the signs of a fungal infection are identifiable even in the early stages, and, consequently, when it is most easily treated. Getting regular pedicures will help reduce your risk for fungal infection, if not eliminate it entirely.
Any form of relaxation is good for the mind, body and soul, and a mani/pedi is no different. Stress, however, is NOT good for anybody, and if not taken care of, it can result in some major health issues down the road. If you have a stressful job, or if the everyday routine begins to weigh you down, a visit to our nail spa will allow you to put your feet up and just let go of the outside world. A few hours is all it takes to release the tension, get back on your feet and see to your responsibilities with a new (and beautiful) spring in your step.
You Deserve to Feel Your Best
Getting your nails done has both physical and mental health benefits, so when you’re feeling guilty about splurging on yourself, just remember: This is for the betterment of your health and your life, and if you happen to look and feel beautiful as a result, well, that’s just an added bonus.
