Benefits of Manicures

There is a lot more to having a manicure then filing and painting your nails. Manicures help prevent ingrown nails, thickened and brittle nails, curved and bitten nails and incorrect removal of artificial nails. Our treatments involve exfoliating the skin to remove dead skin cells, smoothing the surface and stimulating regeneration. We focus on moisturising your cuticles in order to hydrate the skin, as well as massaging the hand and forearm to ensure that the skin is nourished. Massaging also provides stress relief, improves blood flow and helps to relieve aches and pains. Our manicures are highly relaxing and ensures softer skin that is re-energised. We also use a variation of oils, herbal pastes, scrubs and polishes that strengthen your nails.

Paraffin Wax Manicures

Paraffin wax treatments are a luxurious way to soften and moisturise the skin. Paraffin wax has been used for its healing properties as far back as Roman Times whee it was commonly used in massage therapy. Paraffin wax has a natural softening and smoothing effect on the skin. The Paraffin wax manicure involves dipping your hands or toes into our Paraffin wax tub several times to form a thick coating of wax. As the wax hardens, the paraffin’s natural emollient softens the skin and the heat opens up pores.

To wax doesn’t adhere to the skin, making removal of wax pain free. As it’s removed it the wax will take with it any dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. The hands or toes are then given a light massage and additional moisturiser is applied.

Benefits of Paraffin Wax Manicures 

Both the heat and the wax can be of great benefit to dry cracked skin on the hands and toes by intensely moisturising and providing a waterproof coating to help retain the natural oils produced by your body. Paraffin Wax is also used to relieve the pain caused by arthritis and rheumatism. The heat from the wax increases the blood flow to the area, reduces swelling and relaxes the muscles allowing more freedom of movement into the joints.
