The Christmas party season is fast approaching and there can be no better feeling than ditching the work suit and donning a glamorous dress and sky high heels for a night of full on partying? But between finalising the end of year accounts, closing that final deal, or fitting in last minute project requests from clients and colleagues, how are you meant to find time to relax, wind down and enjoy perfecting your party look?
An ideal solution, to ensure you feel fantastic from tip to toe and add that extra special element of glamour, is by treating yourself to a manicure and pedicure. With many companies making this treatment available at the office, using mobile wellbeing companies, such as On Site Massage Co., you can even find time to fit this treat in around the more mundane work day tasks.
Getting a manicure or pedicure really is a feel good sensation. Adding a bit of decadence to the working day that will last well into the evening, when you hit the town for that Christmas party.
A great manicure or pedicure often involves a relaxing hand and foot massage. The skin on the hands is one of the areas most frequently exposed to environmental factors, rain, sun and wind, as well as chemical attacks from harsh detergents in cleaning products and soaps. This can cause the skin to become dehydrated and rough to touch. A hand massage can have a powerful healing effect on the skin, using oils and lotions to penetrate the skin and provide nourishment and rehydration.
Hand massages can provide immediate health benefits, such as improved finger and wrist range of motion and enhanced circulation. Stimulating the flow of blood increases delivery of nutrients to underlying tissues and facilitate movement in the finger joints. The palms of the hands, like the soles of the feet contain numerous nerve endings. Stimulating these with massage can help get rid of any aches and pains as well as promoting functioning in other organs. Massage gets new, oxygen-rich blood flowing into areas that can feel stiff and sore. Not only the muscles, but also the tendons, joints, ligaments and connective tissues in your hands and feet can benefit from the massage therapy.
A professional manicure or pedicure will begin with an assessment of the nails to identify damaged nails and sore, broken skin, so a routine for on-going care at home can be recommended to compliment your treatment. Finger and toe nails will be cleaned, buffed, trimmed and shaped as part of your manicure and pedicure. Attention will be paid to cuticles, which can become tough and unsightly if uncared for. Tidy cuticles give a clean canvas to apply the polish and vastly improve the appearance of hands. Healthy cuticles also help prevent infection. Exfoliation can also be an important part of manicures and pedicures as it aids the natural shedding of dead skin cells and aids blood flow, improving texture of the skin, keeping it smooth and aiding the absorption of lotion.
