For many people, manicures and pedicures are an occasional treat. It feels so nice to pamper yourself once in a while, especially for special events or vacations!
But what if there are more benefits to manicures and pedicures than you thought? Along with regular manicures and pedicures being a relaxing treat, they’re actually very beneficial for your health. Here are just a few of their benefits.
Unplug and Relax
In these stay-home-home days, our screen time is through the roof! It can be hard to feel like you really got a chance to unplug, even on days where you’re not working. A manicure or pedicure is the perfect opportunity to put your phone on “do not disturb” mode and take a moment to breathe. Resting is an important part of mental health. When you take care of yourself, you can better show up for the other people in your life.
Both our signature manicure and signature pedicure services feature hand or foot massages – a perfect way to unwind. If you really want to eliminate tension, try our reflexology pedicure, which features an extended massage, focusing on the pressure points throughout the feet to relax your full body.
Boost Your Mood or Celebrate
Just because we aren’t throwing parties doesn’t mean your party nails are uninvited! Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or graduation—a festive nail color helps mark the occasion. Who doesn’t feel better after looking down to see colorful nails?
If you want your celebration to last even longer, try a full set of gel or acrylic nails! With this option, you can also extend the length of your nails for an extra-glam look.
Weather-Related Skin Relief
Every season brings stress to our skin, nails and cuticles. Check-in on your nail health with a manicure or pedicure. Our hot towel wraps and hydrating massages will help skin absorb even more moisture and stay soft for days.
Our massages also help improve blood circulation to your extremities.
