Why Copper?

Each step of our signature pedicures is designed for your health and relaxation. There is no comparison between a professional pedicure with skilled estheticians and anything else you may have experienced in the past.   One of the many benefits of a Raintree signature pedicure is the use of our copper pots. More than just a foot soak, there are health benefits that you can not experience with foot tubs of any other material.  Not only do they look good and can handle hospital grade sanitization, copper pots are naturally antimicrobial and are a much more hygienic choice.  For centuries, copper has been used for its natural ability to eliminate most all of the viruses it comes in contact with.  There is lots of fascinating research to support the use of copper as an antimicrobial (we’ve linked news report here) and it would take but one nail or fungal infection to make anyone who soaks in other materials a convert.

There are also some indications that copper can have a therapeutic effect on joint movement and connective tissue by reducing inflammation commonly associated with rheumatism, arthritis, osteoporosis, tendonitis and sports injuries. When your skin touches the surface of a copper tub, your body absorbs small amounts of copper which is believed to support its anti-inflammatory effects.
