Thai Pedicure at Belladonna Day Spa By Sarah Andert If you want to get your feet ready for sandal weather but you're not in a do-it-yourself mood, make an appointment to try the ultra-relaxing Thai Pedicure at Belladonna. Added to the menu in December, this 80-minute spa pedicure combines foot massage with the scents of lemongrass and lime to soothe, soften and bring tired feet close to nirvana. Inspired by the beauty of Thailand and its traditional herbal remedies, this pedicure includes a lemongrass and Kaffir lime soak with essential oils, a volcanic clay and lime mask to exfoliate and purify the skin, and a wooden dowel foot massage with acupressure, followed by lemongrass lotion and massage for the feet and legs.
