Welcome to Tauranga's expert in-home podiatry service.
Your feet make up a vital part of your well-being. With a range of natural changes happening to our bodies as we age, taking excellent care of your feet in your golden years is more important now than ever. We understand the large impact that thoughtful, safe and meaningful podiatry care has on a person’s health, mobility and independence. That's why we're committed to delivering the very best foot care by highly experienced podiatrists who work from the warmth and comfort of your home.
We take the time
We don't rush, instead choosing to work carefully and gently while getting to know each patient and building genuine, meaningful relationships. Aside from providing a thoughtful service, this enables us to talk through your concerns and notice problems that would otherwise get overlooked. We believe the little things matter.
More than just skin & nails
Aside from all aspects of skin and nail care in older feet from corns and calluses to thickened nails, our podiatrists also perform specialised falls risk assessments and care, testing and treatment for fungal nail infections, and offer the #1 leading painless and non-surgical treatment of ingrown toenails, Onyfix.
Our podiatrists provide exceptional medical foot care, holding either a PhD or first class Honours in podiatry and specialising in older feet. Our services are superior too nurse-based pedicures or beautician services. Seeing us gives your feet the best experience and expertise possible - and the peace of mind that you're in safe hands.
Meet your podiatrist, Dr Angela Brenton-Rule
Angela is a NZ-registered podiatrist, senior lecturer and member of Podiatry NZ. It was Angela’s belief in providing an exceptional podiatry service and the highest quality care that led her to join Vital Feet Podiatry.
Angela has a specialist interest in the older adult, understanding the impact that foot problems have on a person's quality of life and their ability to keep active and independent. Angela's passion for older feet has seen her become only the second podiatrist in New Zealand to achieve a doctoral degree which looked at the foot and ankle characteristics associated with falls in people with Rheumatoid Arthritis in New Zealand.
Providing expert and professional care in the comfort of your own home, Angela enjoys meeting new people and having a positive impact on their lives.
The full clinical experience, the highest standards
Every treatment delivers a full clinical experience as opposed to a limited mobile service, performed using the highest level of safety, sterility & hygiene protocols. We’re first aid trained, highly experienced with older feet & mobile home-based foot care, and hold a very high standard of equipment and products. All our staff are fully vaccinated and always strictly follow all COVID-19 guidelines.
Pricing, appointments & payments
Our Home Visit appointments cost $80.00 and include all travel costs, consultation, treatment and GST per client. This is comparable to an in-clinic price, meaning we don't charge any premiums for in-home care. This is so that all Tauranga residents have access to top quality podiatry care without any barriers caused by transport or mobility issues. Additional fees apply for extra non-standard services and products including Onyfix, strip testing for fungal nails, and our foot cream range.
We always endeavour to be on time for each appointment, meaning that we may be slightly early or late, but will always provide our full, comprehensive service. We do our best to run on time but given the nature of mobile health care services, we can sometimes run late as we strive to give everyone the best service possible without compromise.
Contactless eftpos payments are available during your visit. We do not run accounts and payment are to be made on the day. We do not accept cheques.
Excellent foot care made easy
Our goal is to make your experience with us as easy, simple and relaxing as possible. There are three steps to having your feet care for by us:
Book your appointment by phone, email, online booking form or filling out the contact form.
