Manicures & Pedicures

One of our most popular schemes is our complementary therapy scheme, where we provide a manicure and pedicure service by qualified professionals, which is very popular. This is run at several sites in Westminster including our main base in Vincent St. twice a month as well as Vauxhall and Southwark.

This is a morale boosting activity for many as a lot of the elderly suffer from depression and low self-esteem and the manicure and pedicure service provides a boost as well as ensuring hands and feet are well looked after. We have also found that many older people cannot cut their nails due to illnesses such as arthritis and osteoporosis which leads to infections thus the pedicure scheme is often a vital service.

Massage

In Westminster we are running massage sessions for the over 50s by a qualified masseuse.

Since starting in April 2004 the massage therapies have proven to be very successful and we have had a big response – massages are arranged on an appointment basis and we book about twenty people for each session.

We have found that it has had a lot of health benefits including helping alleviate the painful symptoms of osteoporosis, as well as helping boost circulation.
