Doctor Fish and Butterflies…………..

November 30, 2009

Do you know about this? It is called a fish spa. You put your feet in water and these fish eat your dead skin cells. I know it sounds really icky – but it is very relaxing! And you leave with smoother skin – it is a pedicure a la fishies.

The little fish come nibble on your toes and feet and calves. They create a vibration sensation. The spa will serve you tea and you just sit back and relax. It is good to know that the tanks hold different size fish and they all feel a little different. The larger ones were my favorite. It does tickle a little at first, but you get over that quickly.

I am sure it is all hocus pocus jibber jabber – but it was fun to try it once. Here is what they claim…

We did this while we were in Singapore. I understand these spas exist all over the world. I will definitely do it again.

We also went to the Butterfly Park on Sentosa Island. It was magical – very large butterflies flitter and flutter by you and might even land on you.

There were also other creatures like turtles, birds, lizards, and even some snakes (in cages).

There is also a tremendous insect collection inside the park. They are all pinned to boards – which sounds mean – but these are some big arse bugs – you will be v.e.r.y. thankful they are not alive and cannot move. And FYI, if you live in Colombia or Brazil, you might want to invest in some industrial strength bugspray and be very careful where you walk.

    We experience it daily at KAHULIHOHA, Alegria Murcia, Philippines. Having nibbling fish create a very happy environment… everyone giggles… you see smiling and laughing face around you! It is not only a stress reliever… it invigorates you as well… you feel the electricity… the lady in front of me started to move her numbed shoulders… with Just Enough Gentle Touch by these nibblers! Try it!

    And to think I used to float on Cumberland Lake until the fish nibbled….then I jumped out of the water and back on the houseboat….but that was years ago.

    I’ve heard about that foot nibbling fish thing, and you’re the first one I’ve known to try it. Cool! Love the butterflies, too.
