footTech Spa guests receive a comprehensive foot and hand assessment to evaluate their readiness for a pedicure or manicure. Some of the services offered include some or all of the following, depending on guest’s health:
An Advanced Nail Technician™ (ANT) is a state licensed nail technician who has completed advanced training to prepare to work safely in performing services for the general public and at-risk patients who need extra gentle care during services.
Graduates of the ANT program may continue their studies to become a CMNT. A Certified Medical Nail Technician™ (CMNT) is a state licensed nail technician who has completed the online CMNT course and has experienced an Internship. footTech Spa’s CMNT, Arlene Spearman, served her internship with an orthopedic surgeon specializing in foot and ankle surgery. The CMNT is trained to perform pedicures aseptically and on at-risk patients.
footTech Spa is included on the We Sterilize Website. This site was created to identify and promote salons and spas that sterilize their reusable implements in an autoclave and utilize aseptic (clean) techniques. Follow this link http://www.westerilize.com/salons_sterilize.asp?BusinessState=TX&Membertype=Salon to find salons that meet these standards in Texas.
All salons and spas listed on this Website implement the following practices:
After each client all metal implements are sterilized in one of our two autoclaves. All files, buffers, and woodsticks are disposed after each client.
Our pedicures are waterless in that we do not soak the feet in water. This procedure reduces concerns over cross contamination between clients. We accomplish our amazing results through the use of quality products and cautious procedures.
For your safety do not wax or shave your legs or feet 24 hours prior to a pedicure.
We require all nail technicians wear gloves during manicures and pedicures.
The use of a razor (called a “Credo” blade) to remove calluses is against Texas regulations. The foot files we use for effective callus reduction are made of stainless steel with abrasive pads. After use, the abrasive pad is removed and discarded, and the file is then sterilized in our autoclave.
It is common practice in the pedicure and manicure industry to receive gratuities. How much should the gratuity be? Compare it to the amount you would give in a quality restaurant for excellent service. Gratuity percentages should be based on the full price of the service.
Could there be a better location? Customers of footTech Shoe Store jog, walk, and limp through the front door. These are people who can benefit from a massage, whether it is a sports, trigger point, myofascial, or foot massage. footTech Spa’s guests can be assured of the rejuvenating benefits of massage therapy.
