Fish Pedicure in Cape Town

Have you heard of the fish spa, also known as fish therapy or doctor fish? If you spent a holiday in Thailand, you might. You put both your feet in a fish tank of warm freshwater for 15-30 minutes and hundreds of garra rufa fish will gently nibble at your skin (they are indeed attracted to skin). The fish eat dead skin cells, but don’t worry, they also get food.

As a result your feet feel refreshed and healthy. This treatment has been very popular in Asia and is now spreading in the US and all around Europe. The fish tanks are connected to a filter where the bacteria is eliminated. In order to keep the water clean, for your health as well as for the fish, each patient will have a complete foot cleansing and disinfection prior to the fish therapy.
