Treat Your Feet with treatments that go the extra mile to smooth and nourish callus, heal cracks and fix nails.

Medi-Pedi

Orkney Podiatry's signature Medi Pedi is a fabulous combination of a professional Podiatry treatment and a Pedicure. Choose from a traditional or waterless Medi Pedi.

This treatment is great for people who struggle with dry skin, cracked heels and callus build ups. Also, it's a great treat for your feet before a holiday or an event such as a wedding! 

We will trim and shape your nails, then reduce your callus with a scalpel and using a special burr on the drill we can smooth down any remaining callus and cracks in your heels if you have them. We then smooth your entire foot down with a skin file.Cuticles will be professionally cleared from your nail without pushing them back, meaning your cuticles are neat and tidy but still intact.

Medi Pedi: 

Using luxurious scrubs and creams to give you the ultimate treat for your feet. Your podiatry treatment is followed by an exfoliating salt scrub which is enriched with softening oils to polish your skin. We then massage in a rich cocoa and shea butter foot cream in your choice of zingy Lemongrass and Mint or refreshing, cooling Peppermint to nourish your skin. Finally a cuticle oil containing myrrh, lemon, geranium, frankincense and lavender essential oils which mosturise and protect your nails and cuticles. 

WARNING: Can create smooth, comfortable feet! Both these patients came in with sore, dry skin, large areas of thick callus and the patient in the photos on the left had a deep crack on her left heel. Look at the difference in the after pictures! If you are struggling with any of the above, why not get in touch and see what a Medi-Pedi can do for you. Also perfectly suitable as a treat for your feet "just because".

Steel Toes

When you work in the trades it's important to take care of your tools so they stay in good working order. The same goes for you yourself too.

This is a treatment designed for trades people who spend their days wearing steel toe caps and welly boots. Hard working people who's feet taking a beating on a daily basis! 

This treatment includes a nail cut and file (lots of people who wear steel toe caps have thicker nails because of the bashing they get from the shoes, we can thin these down for you if you need it), removal of hard skin (hard shoes cause hard skin), a "sanding down" with a salt scrub to smooth down the skin and then some cream at the end to add some moisture back in. 

Think of it as a trim up, sanding and oiling, if you like! 

Warm Wax Therapy

Paraffin wax heat therapy increases blood flow, tolerance for pain, relaxes muscles and increases hydration in the skin. Intended to moisturise and soften the skin while providing a therapeutic and healing effect on sore and aching joints. This makes it particularly beneficial to those suffering from arthritis and rheumatic pain. 

Conditions which may benefit from therapeutic wax therapy are...

 

// Chillblains
// Arthritis
// Bursitis
// Eczema and psoriasis
// Sore muscles
// Stiff joints
// Scar tissue
// Inflammation
// Muscle spasm
// Tendonitis
// Sports injury
// Scleroderma

The paraffin wax contains essential oils (which makes me love it even more!) to help intensely moisturise the skin and provide an antiseptic and anti inflammatory action. The essential oils in the Prende wax are Lavender, Frankincense, Myrrh, Orange and Bay Leaf. 

This is hugely relaxing treatment, the warm wax being brushed on and soothing your feet is amazing. Absolute bliss. 

Please note, this therapy is not suitable for Diabetics, varicose veins or abnormalities , vascular disorders, broken or open skin wounds.

Nail Reconstruction

If you have damaged or unsightly nails which make you feel self conscious and in fear of sandals or the swimming pool, this is the solution for you!

Have a nail reconstructed using a light-curing synthetic resin designed specifically for feet. WILDE-PEDIQUE is an elastic gel which adjusts to the movements of the nails and feet. 

The artificial nail feels completely natural and fits perfectly to the natural nail.

I will colour match your nail for you to make it look as natural as possible. The results are quite incredible!

Nail reconstructions can be expected to last for 6-8 weeks when there is existing nail for the reconstructed nail to adhere to. If you have no existing nail the prosthetic nail may come off after a few days but can be reattached using nail glue.

This treatment is suitable for both men and women.
