The doctors at Remington Podiatry use the latest technology to keep feet, ankles, and other structures of the leg functioning optimally.

Since 1991, Dr. Richard Lavigna D.P.M. has employed his podiatric training to help achy-footed patients to regain pedal function and flexibility. Along with his specialty in complex workplace injuries, he's well versed in surgical correction of the foot and in treating common complaints such as heel pain, bunions, and hammertoe. He guides patients through physical therapy and crafts custom orthotics to correct the repercussions of work environments that require constant standing or constant pirouetting in moon boots.
With the fun and whimsical names given to many of the services at Relax Feet Massage, it's no surprise that services here come with a little extra personality. The Beer Drinker and Hell Raisers massage, for one, gives clients a fresh new start by targeting pressure points on the head and feet that help relieve stressors in the liver and lungs. Then there's the White Collar Special massage, which soothes areas that bear the burden of desk jobs?the neck, shoulders, waist, and hands.
Every massage comes with a foot soak infused with herbs like lavender and jasmine, which may help ease ailments such as insomnia or bolster immune systems. And at the Sutter and Post Street locations, the team offers clients a hot pad that they drape over the neck and shoulders to further ease tension and encourage relaxation. The team also takes pride in keeping each location impeccable, which includes sending their towels away to be thoroughly cleaned and raised in a boarding school.
