Well, it might be a bit different at each spa, but here's what they do at mine:
You sit in a massaging chair, and soak your feet in warm soapy water that has water-jets that massage your feet. (I'd be happy with just this part.)
Next, they trim your nails, file them, and work on your toenail cuticles. Then, they use a special scrubber to work on your callouses. One foot is still soaking while the other is being worked on, then each foot is placed back in the water after it's worked on.
Next, they have you dip your feet in hot wax, then cover them with plastic. When the wax gets hard, they remove it, and massage lotion into your feet and legs. (I really like this part too.)
Then they put on nail polish.
My husband really enjoyed getting his feet worked on, and tells people about it all the time now. He says that he had been missing out on a special treat all his life. I'm glad he enjoys it, because his feet really needed the attention. He couldn't trim them well himself, and he had lots of dry skin and callouses on them. Now, I LOVE to play footsie with him.
