Fish Spa pedicures provide a fun and unusual way for you to clean and exfoliate your skin.
Customers place their feet in warm freshwater tanks containing dozens of toothless Garra rufa fish, which are about the size of minnows. These little guys are known as doctor or nibble fish and they provide an excellent service. Here are some of the benefits of a fish pedicure:
1. Fish do an excellent job of nibbling away the dead skin all over your feet.
2. After the fish have finished nibbling your feet will be soft and smooth.
3. Fish therapy can help help psoriasis but it does not cure it.
4. A Fish pedicure is a great stress reliever because the nibbling generally makes you laugh and giggle.
The Dr fish exfoliation is believed to stimulate blood flow and improve circulation, remove bacteria, reduce foot odour and help with athlete’s foot.
They can also stimulate acupuncture points, helping to regulate the nervous system, relax the body and release fatigue.
Most traditional spas use a loofah or a pumice stone to exfoliate feet and get rid of dead skin but for a fish pedicure instead of a pumice stone sloughing off your calluses, the Dr fish nibble it off to give you soft feet and lovely new skin.
We are not saying its better than a full pedicure at a traditional spa, but its certainly more fun.
