Today at lunch time, me and Nina went to the Jungle Fish spa at The Mall. This shop is like the cheaper spin-off version of Kenko Fish Spa, all the rage now in the Pavillion. It cost us about RM28 each for a half an hour session. So we sat down at the pond, pull our sarong till up on the knees and gingerly dipped our feet in the pond. OH MY GOD! So damn geli, ok!!! Nina was screaming, "This is the last time that I will go to the fish spa!". Twice. Hehe....
Seriously, it felt like your feet was being electrocuted by hundreds of small fish, sucking at your toes and foot and calf, only that it didn't hurt. Ticklish is more like it. Nina said it was the blood circulating. If you guys ever had the foot messager with the infra-red thingy, it also felt like that. Only your feet is in the water. 10 minutes or so, we began to relax our feet. I began to really look at the small fishes. They're called the Garra Rufa. They only eat your dead cells, and leaving your healthy skin, that's why they are also called the Doctor Fish. The Garra Rufas are small, like ikan tamban, and eagerly gnaw at your skin. My feet felt smooth and tingly after the treatment.
The only sad thing was, two little Garra Rufas died during the session. Maybe they overeat my dead skin cells or something. Oh well, the hazards of working in that environment....hehe
Next project: ear candling treatment.
