I go every 6 weeks to the podiatrist and it is wonderful though not as good as a massage.

I had an awful, painful corn, that she showed me what to do and explained it all, and they cut your nails and get rid of dry skin.

Very good for your feet and I hate feet that are not looked after....

I have not been to a podiatrist,and to be truthful,I hate others touching my feet.I take extra care of them myself as I have such painful arthritic issues that even the thought of anyone else touching them makes me wince!!! Funnily enough I have several friends whose idea of Heaven on Earth is having their feet 'pampered'!!! I'd rather eat glass!!!!! Not really,but you get my drift!!!
LOL

No I haven't.
Maybe when I get older :)

Have to be honest, I could not do that job.
Me either!

I have never been to one
by AJ
Never heard of one before.
Bryony -maybe they still call it a chiropodist over there?
by Finy
Oh, okay, now I know what you're talking about! It's sometimes feels like we're speaking different language, doesn't it?
Haven't been to one. You have to pay them right? I'd rather pay for a massage. For now, I can cut my own toenails.

Only ever once and I did feel great! They say our feet are the most neglected parts of our body and in my case, that's true. I really should treat them more often. They're a sad sight right now!
I go regularly as I find it difficult to bend over and some of my nails need specialty attention. They tell you how to get rid of heel spurs, and they get rid of hard skin and clip and file your nails, then rub some cream on. It's lovely, and you can have a chat at the same time.
Yes, monthly, due health concerns. And NOT to one of those Asian places! Feet feel good & toe nails kept in order. Started going years' ago due ingrown toenail. It took 6 months to right it. My pod. then is now the Professor of Podiatry at the main university here, so I had the top-notch person! And I still go to same practice.
I've always wondered just how clean those places are. I was talking to my podiatrist last visit remarking on how there are more of these Asian places popping up everywhere. She said you'd need to be careful about how the foot baths were steralised. Besides, who wants to be looked at whilst having your feet attended to?

Funnily enough I've just returned this morning from my 5 weekly visits. I book the whole year ahead at the same time with the same podiatrist and only change if she is unable to see me for some reason. As you get older your arches tend to fall and custom made orthotics are another benefit of having one's feet looked after. I'm unable to bend down on the right side to attend to my feet due to radical hip resurfacing so let the experts look after me. It's well worth the money.
Nobody touches my feet. Ever. I simply cannot bear to have my feet touched, I would scream the place down.

PS . . my feet are scrupulously clean, I keep my toenails short and I have my own pedi thingy and no corns etc.
by Rice
I did go & see 1 once, about 5 years ago & my feet felt lovely & smooth afterwards. I think I should go back again.

I've been to a podiatrist a couple of times, it was okay I guess, I had my nails trimmed.
