About The Owner of Hygeian Hand & Foot Refinery

In August of 2015, I became a CCPMA (Certified Clinical Podiatric Medical Assistant. I also hold a Medical Nail Tech Certification and and Medical Advanced Nail Tech Certification. I interned with a well known Podiatrist Dr. Robert Spalding DPM who authored an amazing book, Death By Pedicures. This book takes a harsh look into the truth behind our industry. 

Everyone should be educated on what to look for in their tech who will be caring for the hands and feet. At Hygeian Hand and Foot Refinery, my goal is to give you the most amazing experience ever, while going above and beyond just taking care of the esthetics of your feet. I also concern myself with the function of the foot and making sure I can answer as many questions as possible about how to alleviate challenges you may be experiencing. 


Hygeian Hand and Foot Refinery
We take your health very seriously

 I do a foot examination and evaluate the shape and form of your foot and make suggestions and ask a lot of questions of you to find the best resolution to your daily challenges with your feet. It all starts when you walk in our front door and into my room you are directed to the selections of polish I will be applying to your toenails. 

I take your safety and health seriously. Not only are the spa tools I use sterilized in an autoclave (to surgical or dental standards), you also have your very own box of tools. The best part is those tools only touch you and no one else and I store that box for you. 

In addition to sterilization of the metal implements used in your services and the disposable tools that only touch you, I now offer soakless pedicures. No more soaking in a bowl that you are unsure is safe! One more exposure to microorganism completely eliminated. This is all to make sure you have the most sanitary experience in my chair and in Clarksville. 


But What If You Have Special Problems With Your Feet?
Seventy five percent of the population has a problem of some kind with their feet. These problems can be addressed and treated by a Certified Master Pedicurist. 

The most common problem is ingrown toenails caused by improper cutting and trimming of the toenail. Other problems include fungus growth, blisters and corns, as well as dry, cracking skin. These conditions, if left untreated, can eventually lead to more debilitating problems. With diabetic feet, these issues can lead to serious medical problems requiring the care of a qualified physician. 

So what is a Certified Master Pedicurist (C.M.P) and why should you have them care for your feet?
A Certified Master Pedicurist (C.M.P.) has taken an intensive 4 day workshop where the following topics are covered:   

  • General Foot Problems     
  • Skin and Nail Disorders/Diseases     
  • Sanitation     
  • Disinfection     
  • Sterilization     
  • Foot Anatomy     
  • Equipment     
  • Tools and Implements
