When organising events, the first thing that comes to mind isn’t always to have a manicures at your events. Some people believe a manicure is a luxury treatment with little benefit other than to pretty-up your nails. This can certainly be many people’s main motivation for paying for a manicure. However, when a manicure is done well and thoroughly, with a hand massage included, it can provide a lot of health benefits for both men and women!

Deep Cleansing Treatment
Even the most conscientious hand-washer will agree that our hands are exposed to all sorts of grime and pollution every day. Regular hand-washing helps to keep most germs and bacteria at bay. A professional manicure can also help to remove any dead skin cells, as well as bacteria that may be trapped underneath the nails. This helps prevent the spread of viruses, and keeps you healthy.
Many people suffer from cold fingers and toes, particularly during the winter. The gentle massaging action that occurs during a manicure helps to improve circulation to these areas. This benefit is truly appreciated if you have manicures at events during cold winter months!
The simple motion of a hand massage can work to loosen tension held in the hand. At the same time. the stimulation of certain pressure points can also help to relieve stress felt in other parts of the body (for more info on this, read our blog How Reflexology can Improve Physical and Mental Wellbeing). But even the act of your visitors taking time out of the busy event to spend on them self can help them to relax as your delegates focus on something as trivial as picking a nail colour rather than the crowds of people at your event. So a manicure is also good for mental health, as it allows visitors to take a step back from the hustle and bustle and refocus their mind.
Have you ever noticed that people with jagged, bitten nails tend to hide their hands more than those with beautifully manicured talons? It may be an unconscious act, but when we have beautiful nails we are keener for others to see them. And so we tend to be more expressive when we talk. This gives off a greater sense of confidence. From our experience, visitors love having manicures at events because it gives them this extra boost!
Manicures at Events
Offering manicures or hand massages at your eventis a quick and easy way to provide stress relief for your visitors. Hand massages in particular can be performed anywhere – not even a chair is necessary, and they can take just five minutes if necessary. This means that your visitors will feel refreshed and re-energised without having to take too much time away from the event.
Hand massage and manicures are great treatments to offer during events. They help guests feel relaxed and pampered without having to disturb their hair, make up or outfits.
Hand massages and manicures may seem like trivial treatments compared with some other relaxation techniques. But they actually provide an excellent time to results ratio that many will appreciate!
