What better way to get rid of that pesky dry skin on your feet than plunging them in a tankful of hungry nibbles fish? Garra Rufa are a species of fish that gently nibble and bite away dead skin, leaving you with perfectly soft and smooth tootsies.

I am glad I've experienced it, twice.

Ah, ticklish! Ticklish! Smiley

This pedicure is certain to bring a smile to your face.

Rest assured, these inch-long fish have no teeth! Smiley

Within seconds the feast began! Smiley *controlled giggles*


And 30 minutes later, I walked away with happier feet. Smiley

Thank you Doctor Fish! Smiley

But the spa we went to kan, didn't have many fish in the kolam... and they all seemed to favor my sister's feet... cos only a few nibbled at my toes... grrr... >:o >:o

cornyman said... @ 19/4/10 3:36 AM

My wife and me liked it very much as we did it once in One Utama or Mid Valley in 2008. It's a good laughing therapy, too for the first five - ten minutes.
Only heard afterwards that Singapore and some US states banned fish spas because of health risks. So not sure if it's because of the fishes or because of the other persons feet (as they can't put chlorine in this water, otherwise the fishes would die)

Ori said... @ 20/4/10 10:52 AM

I've been wanting to try it, but...but...the thought of those fish crowd around my feet....I feel the panic attack already heheh

This does perfectly makes sense to me 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-)
