Therapy for Feet

Karen our therapist at The Day Spa, who already offers pedicures and luxury pedicures, has introduced two new specialized but very different treatments for your feet at Desert Springs.

Our resident podiatrist, Helen Lavis, is now available for appointments at The Day Spa. A podiatrist is a specialist who diagnoses and treats all foot health problems.

Helen has 30 years experience in this area of medicine, and has worked at teaching hospitals in the UK, as well as having a successful private practice in South Oxfordshire for 25 years. Now semi-retired at Desert Springs she is able to offer treatment and foot care advice for anyone who has a problem with their feet.

Reflexology a holistic treatment, performed by experienced therapist Lorri Mathews, is also now available at The Day Spa @ Desert Springs. Reflexologists use their thumbs and fingers to apply pressure to the client’s feet.

Lorri has over 10 years experience in her field and believes that the feet mirror the body and that all organs, systems and glands of the body can be mapped onto areas of the feet called reflex points.

The cost of a podiatry treatment is €30 and one hour reflexology treatment is €35. Advance booking is essential and subject to availability.

Helen’s Footnote for the summer months:-

Our feet naturally sweat to help cool us down. When the feet are enclosed in golf shoes /trainers the sweat is absorbed in the sole and uppers of the shoe. It is important to remove the shoes as soon as possible. Wear sandals and let the sports shoes dry out over 24hours (so 2 pairs are a good idea). Fungal spores love damp dark conditions and this is often the cause of "Athletes Foot" -Tinear Pedis. Give your feet some air and they will love you for it!
