The lovely people at Heal invited me to their medical and wellness spa to try out their signature medical pedicure. It’s a fab idea – bringing medicine and beauty together under one roof. Heals has been open for around a year now, and is owned and run by husband and husband team Oliver and Matthew.
As soon as I entered this place I instantly felt relaxed. They’ve nailed the interior design – it’s an Instagram and Pintrest dream! The smell of the place was divine and the staff were utterly lovely and super attentive. Mumblers – if you are in need of some much needed pampering time you have to check this place out! Hair salon, chiropody, beauty and reflexology – they do it all!
Oliver is a trained podiatrist and is so passionate and knowledgeable about what he does. He believes – and rightly so – that medicine shouldn’t be utilitarian, it should be enjoyable. The medical pedicure is essentially a full pedicure but done by a medically qualified podiatrist using the correct sterilized equipment. I cannot tell you how gorgeous my feet looked and felt after Oliver had done his magic! No more hard skin – I could now give my little girl a run for her money in the soft feet stakes!
To finish the pedicure Oliver handed over to his husband, and in-house beautician Matthew – who finished my feet off with a gel polish. Matthew was equally as lovely and passionate about Heal as his husband. I have to say, this is one of the best – actually scrap the one bit – this is THE best pedicure I’ve ever had! The products they use throughout their spa are very luxurious, and all super environmentally friendly.
It’s worth mentioning they do a loyalty scheme – collect stamps each time you receive any nail polish service. For every six stamps – you get the seventh service totally free! As well as this they also run a subscription scheme called Devotees. For £14 a month you receive a treatment or product worth greater than your fee. Their July Devotee treats included eyebrow tint and shape, file and polish or a milk body spray. I think it’s a great gift idea – I’ve added it to my Christmas list already!
For those of you that fancy some child-free time – get down to Heals, set in Harrogate’s beautiful Montpellier Quarter, as quick as your soon-to-be beach-ready feet will carry you! In fact, if you mention Harrogate Mumbler when booking you will receive 25% off your first beauty or medical treatment. But hurry – all good things must come to an end, and this offer is only valid for June appointments.
