shocking Fish Pedicures

Fish pedicures: Carp rid human feet of scaly skin
By Mathew Barakat

Ready for the latest in spa pampering? Prepare to dunk
your tootsies in a tank of water and let tiny carp nibble away.
Fish pedicures are creating something of a splash in the D.C. area, where a northern
Virginia spa has been offering them for the past four months. John Ho, who runs the
Yvonne Hair and Nails salon with his wife, Yvonne Le, said 5,000 people have taken
the plunge so entire article.

Would you take the plunge? This is not for me! This just gives me the shivers. lol!!

Not for me either. Though I do need a good pedicure!

No way but I do get regular pedicures and need one now. Can't do it anymore like I use to be able to. I saw this on the View yesterday I think ugh!
I will take what I am served knowing someone out there is being served MUCH less

I saw that story on the news. I have to say it sort of grossed me out. In some ways the fish do a fantastic job but all I can think about is that fish poo in the water. Eeeewww! guess it just isn't for me.

We even saw that story here! Fresh batch of fish for each new set of feet, what do the do with the fish already used?

I think it would be a bit freaky knowing little fish are nibbling at your feet but I guess it's one of those things that you'd have to try at least once?

Meg I've only heard the US story not see a place here that does it.

Is it a bit chilly down south?

It's so funny.. When I worked at Girl Scout camp, the girls swam in a sandy-bottomed lake, and if you stood still in the shallows for a while ( as you do when lwatcing little kids) the fish would nibble at your feet. It tickled, and we used to joke about aquatic bottom feeding pedicures.

I think it would probably feel the same, but there's no way I'd:
a) spend money for it
b) trust a re-used tank of fishy water to soak my feet in!
