Kate McEwan
Foot Health Practitioner and Reflexologist

A Foot Health treatment aims to restore the feet to a comfortable and pain-free condition, leaving the client feeling pampered. Treatment starts with a toenail cut, including the reduction of thickened nails, and then trimming and shaping the nails into an attractive finish. Any hard skin, callus and corns are removed and advice is given on home care and footwear. The treatment ends with a relaxing foot massage.

Reflexology, aims to restore a balanced flow of energy to all parts of the body by gentle massage of the reflex or energy points on the feet, thus restoring health and vitality.
As an ancient and relaxing holistic therapy Relexology affects the whole body rather than isolaged symptoms. It can help normalize bodily functions.
