Customers soak themselves in a small pool full of Garra rufa (or doctor fish) while dead skin cells get nibbled off their feet / entire body. 
(extracted from My Paper Thursday July 17 2008 P. 22-23)

I have always been curious and wanted to try this since I knew of it.  It was last Saturday when I walked past a Tanning Studio near Bugis Junction.  The trial pice is SGD10 for 10 mins, not cheap but not deep, so I gave a go.

The salon staff asked me to rinse my feet then can soak into the pool full of doctor fish.  When I put my feet into the water, the fish would first go away, a bit cautious for awhile.  When my body remained still and the didn't detect any danger, they would then started to gather around my feet and nibbled around my feet. 

The feeling is weird, I felt unbearably ticklish.  But since I have paid for the money, of course I would not give up.  I just forced myself to stay in the water and let them tickling my feet.... I even submerged my kneecaps into the water as I thought the dead skin cells at the knee cap area should be the worst. 

Finally 15mins past (staff said extra 5 mins for free), I got out of the water and rinse my feet.  Touched my feet, it felt softer and silkier.  Too bad I didn't have a pedicure section followed with this. 

If I would like to try the body exfoliation, it would be SGD49 for 30 mins, and I will have to wear bikini to get as much skin exposed as possible for the treatment.  I don't think I could bear the ticklish feeling beyond my feet.... :) emotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotion

看過雜誌報導"魚毛去死皮"覺得很有趣, 可是最初只有聖淘沙島上的美療中心才有, 價錢並不便宜. 只有作罷.

上星期湊巧路過武吉士的一所美容院看到有這個療程的推介 - 新加坡10元/10分鐘足部護理....10元也不是大數目, 姑且一試.

沖洗了雙腿之後走進一間像溫泉個室的房間, 溫泉水裡就有無數的魚毛在游戈...抱住好奇的心情, 雙腿慢慢下水~~

最初雙腿浸在水時, 魚毛們稍為謹慎, 先遠觀, 數秒後發現沒有危險便馬上蜂湧而上,飢餓地啜吸我那雙金華火腿的死皮.....我不是怕咯吱的人, 可是魚毛那麼樣的"吸啜, 啜吸", 實在受不了!!!!!!!!emotion 想把腿提出水面避開襲擊, 想到已付的銀兩," 唉!頂硬上啦!!", 慢慢適應了些, 把注意力放在閱讀報紙, 加上拍照留念, 終於捱完了[欲仙欲死]的煎熬, 上水!!!

除了腿部療程,還有全身浸泡療程,但就算是免費我也不會試,因為實在太受不了!!emotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotionemotion
事後摸摸雙腿, 不知是心理作用還是什麼,好像是嫩滑了也白晢了....emotion
