Do you have problems trimming your own toenails? Worry not for help is at hand!

A simple yet effective basic 'fully-insured' toenail trimming service in the comfort of your own home is offered, performed by a professional therapist (ex-surgical chiropodist) with over thirty years' experience in clinics, rest homes and private properties.


Long toenails can not only be uncomfortable and a source of irritation, they can have an unfavourable effect on a person's dignity and sense of well-being. Neglected toenails can eventually lead to dangerous foot infections or worse, especially for elderly people. Problems with having no one to cut your toenails, if you cannot attend to them yourself, may result in more serious problems being undetected.


In many instances neglected toenails ultimately leads to hospitalisation due to negative follow-on  health ramifications. Furthermore, waiting for ‘hard-to-come-by’ appointments at clinics to have your nails attended to can cause frustration and be very time consuming.  


People with conditions like arthritis or perhaps a bad back etc, who might have trouble bending down to cut their toenails, may also not have a qualified friend or partner able to help them with trimming their nails. Senior citizens in particular frequently become housebound as long toenails reduce their mobility due to pain or discomfort. Toenail neglect may also be associated with failing eyesight.  A great deal of medical problems consequently stem from the single factor of neglect. This is largely avoidable with a regular professional nail trimming service.  


Do not neglect your toenails

On a positive note, regularly maintained toenails give us a better quality of life and this is especially true for elderly or infirm people who may have difficulty performing this essential task.


Not everyone wishes to wait for months to receive simple toenail trimming service at a clinic. Furthermore, many health authorities have reduced this much-needed service leading to further neglect.


Please note: this basic yet professional toenail trimming service is 'not' intended to replace medical help from your doctor or any chiropody/podiatry treatment. Service consists of an appropriate basic toenail trim and file. This is however 'not' a beauty treatment.

Basic toenail trims only

The old certificate photo (above) is a copy of the original 1980s qualification. This serves only as an illustration of previous experience in the field. Although I served over 30 years as a busy chiropodist I do ‘not’ profess to be one today. I do however possess the relevant insurance (along with my wealth of previous experience) to carry out the basic toenail trims offered. I therefore must reiterate that if you have medical foot problems that you should seek a doctor’s or chiropodist’s advice.
