According to some of the latest research, “the average person (moderately active) takes around 7,500 steps per day. If this is maintained daily through the age of 80, a person will have walked about 216,262,500 steps throughout his or her life. And that person would average about 1,300 to 1,500 miles a year, and about 3.7 miles a day.”
Your feet are important. They do a lot of work every single day. How are you maintaining healthy feet? It sounds silly, really, but our feet require routine maintenance for our bodies to perform at our greatest. Similar to a well-oiled machine or car. So today, we’re talking about all things feet and pedicures!
Pedicures aren’t just about making toes pretty or a good massage. There are real health benefits to this treatment. Here are just a few:
Just like going to the dentist twice a year or taking babies to well-baby checkups, having a routine pedicure is going to be your first line of defense against any foot problem or infection before it gets out of hand. Most nail techs will recommend spacing routine pedicures out somewhere between four to six weeks. Though depending on your goals, lifestyle, budget, and foot health your nail tech will work with you as to what will be best for you specifically.
Let’s say you already have a foot fungal infection or you get regular ingrown toenails constantly, and nothing has helped. Visit with an expert! They are going to be able to offer sound advice and treatment plans to get your feet up and moving as efficiently and quickly as possible. If it is something that is out of their scope of practice they will be able to refer you to someone who will be able to care for you.
I think it can be agreed upon, that one of the best parts about a professional pedicure is the massage! While it feels wonderful, did you know it is also providing health benefits? Pedicurists know special massaging techniques that will help drain the lymphatic system and support better blood flow. If your feet are prone to swelling or you’re in need of extra blood flow throughout your feet, a good pedicure could be the answer!
A person’s mental health should never be something that is over looked. Self-care routines have been proven to effectively enhance a person’s emotional state. Pedicures are for everyone. Enjoy an hour of relaxation, pampering, and putting your feet up!
