In the Christie Clinic Barefoot Medical Spa, services are performed by nail technicians, Sharon Duncan and Ermanda Roberts. Sharon and Ermanda have had extensive training in spa services related to the feet, and they can easily recognize potential nail and skin concerns that may require a visit with a surgeon in the Department of Foot and Ankle Surgery.

Available services include waterless medical-grade pedicures, callus reduction, cuticle care, nail shaping and trimming. All services are performed with autoclaved disposable tools to ensure no transmission of bacteria occurs.

Sharon and Ermanda are also experienced with diabetic foot care, which is crucial for individuals managing diabetes, as they are at a higher risk of developing foot complications due to nerve damage and poor circulation. While pedicures can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience, they require special considerations for those with diabetes to prevent potential complications.

A minor cut or abrasion on someone with diabetes can quickly escalate into a serious infection if not properly treated. Professional pedicures can inadvertently cause cuts or scrapes, making it essential for diabetic individuals to choose places like Christie Clinic Barefoot Medical Spa that adhere to strict hygiene standards.
