Description:
It is the goal of this clinic to help each of its clients reach a level of comfort and safety through regular, ongoing foot care and education so they may maximize their mobility, improve health, and achieve peace of mind regarding the status of their feet. Routine nail and foot care is provided at this clinic, which includes reduction of nail, corn, and calluses and concludes with a gentle moisturizing massage of the lower extremities. Physical assessment, client-education, and assistance with referrals are provided when indicated.

The clinic is open the 1st and 2nd Tuesdays of every month from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. (by appointment only) at the Edmonds Senior Center Ceramics Room (1st floor), 220 Railroad Ave. in Edmonds. If it is your first visit or if you need extra time please make an 8 a.m. appointment.
