Medical spas, or medi-spas, offer traditional spa services. You’ll notice a big difference, however, in our environment. Dr. Mitchell Waskin, a Board Certified podiatrist in the Foot & Ankle Center, is the Medical Director and is onsite. Dr. Waskin's mission in opening The Foot & Hand Spa is to provide Richmond a place where people can receive safe and healthy hand and foot care without the risk of infection that's prevalent at typical nail salons. He works with our professionally trained nail technicians to oversee your care, particularly if you have foot problems or other health issues that affect your feet.
COVID-19 update: We are asking clients to please bring a mask to wear. Beverage service is temporarily unavailable.
Our nail technicians are all licensed by the Virginia Board of Cosmetology. Each technician is also provided thorough training from the on-site podiatrists and medical staff at The Foot & Ankle Center so that we may provide the highest quality, medical-grade foot, nail, and skin care that can't be found at any other nail salon in Richmond. We autoclave (steam sterilize - like hospitals do) all tools and we do not reuse any disposables like buffers and files. The extra care provided at The Foot & Hand Spa makes it the perfect place for everyone, especially medically-compromised individuals, such as those impacted by total joint replacement, diabetes, chemotherapy, or arthritis, to receive absolutely clean manicures and pedicures!
Your health is our #1 priority at The Foot & Hand Spa. In order to keep you free of infection and to accommodate some of our clients' unique medical needs, we maintain strict sanitation and sterilization standards, not unlike those of a hospital.

Dear Loyal Clients,
We want to apologize to all of our clients who have been affected, possibly on more than one occasion, by our recent rescheduling or cancellation of your Spa appointment. Our priority has always been to provide quality service to our clients. We are fortunate to have such a strong base of regular customers who have booked future appointments and we want to be available for the new clients that reach out to us each day.
Unfortunately, like many other businesses, we have been adversely affected by the economy in general and, in particular, COVID-19. In addition to normal work absences, working with masks and working around the general population has caused great anxiety with staff. Childcare issues abound for workers and of course, exposure to COVID-19 has caused interruptions to our work flow. The Foot & Hand Spa has joined many other businesses to experience difficulty in maintaining consistent professional staffing to accommodate our clients.
As we work diligently to try keep our good nail techs and also rebuild our team with good, reliable technicians, we hope you will be patient just a little longer as we work through these issues in this new work environment.
Services such as ours – those with high standards of sanitation and cleanliness - are important more than ever now and we want to continue to be here for you. We understand and apologize for your frustrations with our recent scheduling issues and we are committed to working in this new work culture to service our clients with less interruptions.
Mitchell Waskin, DPM
Medical Director, Foot & Hand Spa, LLC
