Task 1A

1.Positioning if the therapist and the client during the treatment It is very important for a effective treatment that:
* Both the nail technician and the client are in a comfortable position, so they are at the same height for the treatment. * Only use chairs that give adequate back support.
* The station is at waist height.
* Both the client and the nail technician are able to get their knees under the manicure area. * If the nail technician cannot place their feet on the floor when working, a foot rest has to be provided. * Both client and nail technician are centrally facing each other, therefore prevent against unnecessary stretching or strain. * The station should be placed away from direct sunlight to prevent discomfort and product reactions.

2.Carrying out a nail and skin analysis
Before carrying out a manicure service, it is necessary to assess the condition of the clients skin, nails and cuticles. This is done in the order that the most appropriate hand and nail treatments and products may be chosen. Also, by correctly assessing and analyzing the clients hands condition and writing this on their record card, you will be able to see over the period of the time how the condition is progressing. Assess the: * cuticles- are they dry, thick or cracked, or are they soft? * nails- are they strong or weak, brittle or flaking? Are they discoloured or stained? what shape are they- square, round, oval? are they long or short? are they bitten? * skin- is the skin dry, rough or chapped, or is it soft and smooth? is the colour even? During consultation you would introduce yourself and exchange pleasantries. Consider the clients age, cultural backgrounds, gender and any disabilities. Discuss the clients requirements. Suggest a treatment to meet the clients needs. Explain the treatment procedure. Discuss time, cost, frequency and maintenance. Complete the record card.

3.Using the correct products, tools, equipment and techniques * to make sure the ingredients are not harmful to the client(if allergic) * to make sure clients skin, nail, cuticle condition will improve use correct tools in good quality to not damage the skin and nails of the client * make sure you are not to rough with client so you don’t damage the skin * to make improvements in clients skin, nails, cuticle to not make the condition worst
