All instruments used during each foot care session are sterilized to hospital standards using the Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee (PIDAC) guidelines, packaged in sets and sealed for your protection. We use a 3 step verification process to ensure all instrumentation remains sterile to the point of use. All surfaces and treatment areas are cleaned and disinfected between clients to IPAC standards to eliminate cross-contamination risk.

While medical manicures and pedicures focus on pampering, we take infection control precautions that exceed those featured in most typical procedures. The staff who perform medical fingernail care (medical mani) are trained nurses who respond to medical conditions such as diabetes, thickened nails and fungal infections.
A typical medical manicure will begin by checking nails and hands for injury and infection— trimming, reducing thickened nails if needed, filling and lotion application.
- Fingernail trimming and filing

Manual Lymph Drainage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a gentle and rhythmic massage technique designed to facilitate the natural flow of the lymphatic system. This therapeutic approach offers numerous advantages, including the reduction of inflammation, elimination of waste within the body, alleviation of swelling, and relief from many conditions.
Is Manual Lymphatic Drainage Painful?
One of the remarkable aspects of Manual Lymphatic Drainage is its non-invasive and painless nature. Unlike traditional massages, MLD involves applying pressure equivalent to the weight of a dime. The rationale behind this gentle touch is that the majority of the lymphatic system resides just beneath the skin's surface. Consequently, there is no need for deep pressure.
Clients often find this massage exceptionally relaxing, to the point where they may feel inclined to take a nap during the session. It's advisable to allocate some post-treatment time for rest as well, as the relaxation induced by a lymphatic drainage massage can linger.
Complete Decongestive Therapy
Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) is the current gold standard for the treatment of Lymphedema. The combination of Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Compression Bandaging, Garments, Exercises and Skin Care makes this therapy truly effective. Compression bandages are available on site for purchase, as well as we have a custom garment fitter onsite to help create the perfect fitting longterm garment, once reduction has been achieved.
