Put your feet in our hands....

Your feet are the most forgotten about part of the body when it comes to health matters, but would it surprise you to know that in the course of one day you take between 8 and 10 thousand steps, thats a lot of work!

Feet contain 52 bones when fully formed, that is 25% of your entire skeleton, when they are out of alignment, then so is the rest of your body, so it pays to pay attention to your feet, they can tell you a lot about your general health, far more than you would think.

Why not spend a little time thinking about your feet and all they do for you, if you think something is not quite right or there is pain where you don't think there should be, then call or use the online booking system and make an appointment and we will be only too please to help and advise on treatments or excercises that could make all the difference to you and your feet.......




"My First ever visit to a Chiropodist. I did not know what to expect. What I got was; an extremely professional, informative, polite experience. Clear and easy explanation of options in a manner that was as relaxing as it was professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending this practice, to anybody."


"Don't hesitate to go here. They have top of the range equipment, lovely clean surgery and amazing people! I'm just back from an appointment with Una and I will be back again whenever needed. Very professional and great experience."


"My first impressions were very clean and modern.  Would definitely recommend. Went with pain. I had a corn removed professionally and painlessly."
Myself and David would highly recommend this clinic. Joanne was excellent in treating my son David (age 15). Very professional. Answered any questions asked. Gave great treatment and excellent advice.

 "I visited this clinic today because I have very dry skin on my feet and I thought I had a fungal infection in the toenails on my right foot. 
Joanne Makarus looked after me so well and I left with much more attractive feet and the happy knowledge that I don't have an infection." 


"Very impressed with the level of attention and general friendliness . Very professional treatment in lovely surroundings . I attended for a general review of my feet prior to minor leg surgery . 

I chose this clinic due to its general proximity to my home address . The lady who carried out the treatment was a credit to her profession. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone seeking podiatry treatment."


Brendan has a long career dealing with the public, both in his current role within our reception and in his previous role as an Insurance Broker for over 40 years!
