Great, knowledgeable service and help from Chandani and her team. Wonderful to find people who are truly concerned about your well-being and not just trying to make as much money out of you as possible. Highly recommended!

I had the great fortune of being treated by Chandani Gopal who was an absolute professional. My visit was relaxed, informative and between the conversation and treatment, I left there extremely pleased with the wonderful service I received and even more so with the condition of my feet. Thank you Chandani. Your kindness and professionalism is appreciated.
