DR. FISH TREATMENT

Saturday Fun

If ever you feel that your legs and feet need a thoroughly cleaning, and you have nothing to do over the weekend, then go to Dr. Fish SPA. You hang your legs in a bassin and little sweet fishes will nibble at your legs and feet and eat up everything which doesn't belong on a smooth leg skin, except probably the hairs which you should shave off before. I doubt that the fishes eat hairs, but I am not sure.

I have seen this in Eastbourne on the Pier, there was a beauty shop which did such a treatment. I could take the pictures through the window, as the two women were so busy with chatting that they didn't even see me.



I have to admit that I prefered to save the 10 £ for 10 min fish feeding. I mean if I feed already the fishes with my skin it should be free because I make the fishes happy !

Somehow it reminded me the use of bloodsuckers which centuries ago were put on people for all kind of diseases and apparently this treatment comes back too.

That is a weird way to destress, Gattina! Yes, I remember my grandmother telling me about the leeches used to cleanse people who were ill - gory, ugh. Anyway, I hope you're rising from your blue mood and ready to take on Belgium again! Have a great weekend. Jo

Never heard of this before and hope this new treatment never comes here. Is this fish cruelty I wonder??.
Lucky for me I can paddle in the ocean, a much better treatment for feet and legs and It's free.

The first time I saw this advertised I thought it was a joke! I think I'll stick with the pedicure my dogs give me - not good for ticklish feet but I'm not ticklish, so that's all right;-)

I tried it once and I had to bite my fingers coz it was SO ticklish! It was a fun experience though. Try it!

Ugh! Yuck! No way! I always tried not to have fish nibble on me when I went swimming!

Leeches are still used in modern medicine.

Using fish to defoliate skin looks interesting. Do they not offer a whole body treatment? :)
