Foot Health & Reflexology
I am a qualified, insured and DBS checked Foot Health Practitioner. I have a Diploma in Foot Health from The SMAE Institute.
I offer the following services at my fully equipped treatment room in Buntingford and can also offer mobile visits;
Nail cutting & filing
Fungal nail treatment
Reduction of thickened nails
Diabetic foot care
What is the difference between a Podiatrist and a foot health practitioner?
They can both offer nail cutting, verruca and fungal treatments and corn and callus removal. Diabetic foot assessments and monitoring are also carried out by both along with general advice on footsore and footwear. However, the title Podiatrist can only be used by those who have completed the appropriate training and registered with the Health & Care Professional Council. A Foot Health Practitioner is diploma trained and is qualified to work in the private sector.
A full medical history will be taken on the first visit as well as neuro-vascular assessments on an ongoing basis and a treatment plan devised according to your needs. Treatments are recommended every 6-8 weeks to maintain foot health.
