The process is simple. A species of fish known for their healing methods are introduced into a small tank or pool of water. Here, you either put your feet in the water, or hands. The specific Garra Rufa fish are known to heal ailments like psoriasis (a chronic skin condition), warts and dead skin.
To begin with, these fish are extremely friendly, so NO, they don’t bite! If you fear the ‘uncontrollable tickle’ on your feet, well that is a part and parcel of a service like this. Secondly, when they feed on the dead skin of your body, especially your feet, they are eliminating any chances of fungal infections and foot odour for you, which is awesome. Apart from this, these fish spa therapies help greatly in stimulating blood flow, circulation and acupuncture points in your body. It is almost like a nature pedicure, without the headache of chemicals and hour-long procedures. Since it includes exfoliation as well, you never have to step foot in a parlour again. Lastly, this is particularly known to give your feet or hands a completely rejuvenated feel.
