    Boy I hope so because there is nothing else I enjoy more than to get a spa pedicure and foot massage after a tennis match

    Am I alone here?

    Anyone else out there get them regularly?

    I hate people touching my feet, except my yoga instructor - he has THE touch.

    I did get my first manicure a couple weeks ago. Would definitely do that again.

    I would never let anyone touch my feet.

    I don't think I'd ever even get a massage. Makes me get goosebumps, in a bad way. I tense up like a cat when you're petting their back.

    I would welcome a foot massage/pedicure anytime/anywhere.

    A real jock should consider this necessary since the feet are the foundation, that affects the rest of the body.

    My sports massage therapist insists upon it and I don't dispute.icon_cool.gif

    Only from myself. I wish there was someone out there who'd massage my feet!

    Yes - absolutely. It is a great feeling -- and having hands and feet all cleaned up, healthy and looking as good as when I was 25 is not too bad either!

    instead of asking this question ask this:


    Are most guys here even real jocks?

    a big heeeeeeeeeellllll yes!

    Just went to Burke Williams Spa and saw my favorite person there. This woman is simply amazing. I get the Spa Pedicure and its like being in heaven for about an hour.

    I get very antsy and twitchy when I get my toe nails cut by others (due to the fact that my skin underneath the nails goes up high and if it gets cut even slightly. OUCH - which makes me nervous when I get pedicures). When I first went to see Alycee I explained her my situation and she was great about it and assured me that she knew what she was doing, that those in the service are always supposed to look under the nails and check skin contact length etc...

    I never worry with her. My feet look amazing, they feel great, she buffs them and makes the nails shiny (which I love!) massages the legs, does paraffin wax dips and so on.

    You can be a "real jock" and still get pedicures. I'm not big on spending money on lots of expensive items such as clothes, but when it comes to personal luxuries like massages, manicures I don't mind spending the money.

    If you have never done mani/pedis then I say you should go and find a good place to get one. Whether I am in the Castro or in West Hollywood you will find lots of men there getting these services done. (makes some more comfortable rather than going to some random suburban nail care place with lots of housewives)

    ok end of a longer than expected post.

    the answer is SURE CAN. Pedicure and Foot Spa are not exclusive for girls.

    Okay...I don't know why people are so weirded out by this. First off, many people do not understand that if your feet don't feel good...you don't feel good!!! And most folks neglect their feet quite badly.

    Second...I like to wear a lot of open toe shoes, or go barefoot in the summer...and one of the first things I notice on others are their feet...and if I see someone with gross and neglected feet I know that they are not serious about taking care of themselves....and it is a huge turn off!!

    You need to take care of all of your body (feet included) and it will pay you back in spades.

    As a runner, I find there to be no greater small pleasure in life than a foot massage. It relaxes your ENTIRE body and works at the kinks in your knees, hips and lower back...if your massage therapist knows what he or she is doing.

    I have never had an actual professional pedicure...though I have enjoyed an amateur one given by a gentlemen who quite enjoyed my size 13s. icon_eek.gif

    actually once a year I go for a 2 hour massage (aside from normal hour sessions) and one request is that they spend at least 40 mins on my feet....talk about relaxing!!
