Fish Feet

Ok, so another new beauty secret...Fish Spa Therapy.  Fish spa therapy, what is that?  Basically, its a spa where you sit with your feet in a large fish tank and fish eat the dead skin off of your feet. Let me quote here, "Let these little 'masseurs' nibble away your dead skin and pamper your feet to a pleasant sensation and relaxation of 'micro-massage' that is followed by a tingling sensation.  Your feet will emerge with baby smooth skin and make your pores unobstructed to promote blood circulation of the skin."

In the mall they have these fish spas.  I've been dying to try this since we arrived in Penang.  This sounds like a great symbiotic relationship, the dead skin gets eaten off my feet and the fish get fed.  Sounds like the perfect therapy for a social worker.  

Yesterday my friend Sally and I decided to pamper ourselves,  and sat with our feet in the fish tanks, followed by a shoulder massage and foot reflexology.  It was a great way to spend our morning.  We had the luxury of choosing which size fish we wanted to have nibble away our dry skin.  We started small and worked our way up to the big daddies!  It felt like someone was tickling my feet but with purpose.  Surprisingly, my feet do look and feel better.  The dead skin on my toes and heels is better. I think this may get added to my list of guilty pleasures.  To top it off, our hour and a half plus of pampering set me back $24 USD!
