Meet the Team
Hello, I am Milena Thoms, and I am a Foot Health Practitioner operating in Tayside, Scotland.
I am from Brazil and have been providing foot heath care and advice since August 2012.
Originally I qualified as a Podiatrist in Sao Paulo, Brazil, obtaining my qualification there
in 2004 from SENAC a highly reputable college for health professionals.
I moved to the UK in December 2011.
Acknowledging the differences between Brazilian and UK foot health care qualifications, I have gained approval from the leading UK Foot Health Practitioners body, attending a residential course at Blackheath, West Midlands in summer 2013.
Prior to arrival in the UK I worked for 2 different clinics in São Paulo between 2004 and 2006.
Between 2007 to 2011 I ran my own practice, where I built up a large and loyal clientele.
From June 2018 I started working in my own clinic called Happy Clinics Ltd., in the centre of Dundee, what made myself very proud of my hard work.
Foot Health Practitioners deliver routine foot care wherever it is needed.
We are trained to recognise and assess foot conditions, treat appropriately and refer when necessary.
Many people need simple foot care to maintain mobility and quality of life.
Being overweight or diabetic increases the need, and both of these conditions are rapidly increasing in prevalence in the population.
Happy Feet is fully insured and provides a highly professional foot care service, helping men, women and children to look after their feet with comfort and safety. We greatly value our customers and client confidentiality is of paramount importance to us.
Also from Brazil, Luciane de Paula has gained her qualification as a Foot Health Practitioner from Stonebridge Associated College in UK and joined Happy Feet in March 2014, being personally trained by Milena Thoms, to achieve Happy Feet's high standard and has been very busy since then, having had very good reviews from clients on Facebook.
