Fish Spa Therpy is a feet or full body massage given by Turkish fish which reactivate the regenerative skin cell mechanism, leaving it soft and smooth. These fish do not have teeth so they harmlessly suctions dead skin cells without touching inner layers. Throughout this process, it generates an enzyme which has a regenerative effect on skin. each fish tank has ultraviolet water sterilization, which eliminates 99.9% of bacteria, virus and other germs.

So many people have told me they would NEVER do this. Boy, are they missing a truly unique experience! I guess it could be described as ticklish, but that's not accurate. My husband says hundreds of little kisses! Uh - not sure of that either....More

Passing thru the airport, my wife saw this and someone else having it done. Decided it looked fun. The whole time she said it tickled, don't know if it works, but the fish feasted on her feet.
