Fish spas, the newest craze

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but fish spas are the hottest thing to hit the beauty/skincare scene!  They’ve  been quite popular in many parts of Asia and I had been intrigued for many months before I finally got a chance to try it out when I was traveling in Thailand.  Singapore also has a fair share of fish spas, as does most of SE Asia.  I don’t know about China, since it seems they’re more caught up in the blind masseur thing.  But in case you were ever so curious about what in the world “doctor fish” are and why in the world people would go to a fish spa, here’s a little preview!

Fish spas are supposed to be great for your skin, because these little fish come and nibble away your dead skin cells.  They claim that people with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and the like should get this type of treatment to help with breakouts.  At the very least, you sure do leave with soft feet and a unique experience behind you.  I’m sure you can read more about the actual types of fish and why it’s purportedly good for your skin, so I just wanted to share my own experience at the fish spa.

When the fish swarm at you, it really tickles! I couldn’t help but giggle out loud. 😛  After awhile you get used to it and occasionally there’s a little bite that hits a nerve, but overall it’s very gentle and immensely amusing. If you happen to know of one in LA, please do let me know! The only one in the states I found was in Virginia…
