The fish only consume the dead and affected skin of the feet, leaving the skin healthy and glowing. It is also believed that the fish secrete a special enzyme which has healing properties and works well on infected skin. It is not a curative treatment for any skin disorder; however, the visible benefits are easy to see and feel. A session with the aptly named doctor fish can leave your feet feeling alive and smooth within half an hour to 45 minutes.
The attendants at the spa ensure that the customer’s feet are cleaned before they dip them in the tank containing the fish. Also the water is constantly circulated to prevent any infection from setting in or the water getting dirty. After the fish have worked on your feet, the attendants follow up with a soothing cream massage, often using some form of acupressure to add further benefits to the entire experience.
So if you are suffering from any skin infection on your feet, have calloused and rough feet or simply want to relax the tired muscles – then the fish spa is the one-stop solution for you.
