Fish spa not for the squeamish

Have you ever jumped when your foot touched something wiggly while swimming in a lake? If so, you may not want to try a new "fish spa" where hundreds of tiny cleaner fish nibble the dead skin off clients.

Fish are the hot new exfoliant, and fish spas are springing up in China, Japan, Korea, and elsewhere. The claim is that cleaner fish nibble off dead skin and produce a "pleasant tingling" feeling. They leave people feeling rejuvenated, and even help treat psoriasis. The fish work well in hot water so you get a hot soak out of it too.

Hey, it beats using chemicals or abrasives, and it sounds like fun to this fish guy.

hat tip: mental floss

I think the original form of relaxation, although I do not think I can have as many fish around me because I get very scared, tndria to prepare myself psychologically to endure treatment like that!
