After a tiring (but exciting) wedding day, we both think we deserve a special treat so we headed to Kenko Reflexology Fish & Spa at Pavilion for a foot therapy, called the Fish Spa Therapy. It is not like any other foot therapies bcoz the masseurs are not human, but fishes - lots and lots of 'em!
The fishes are called Garra Ruffa (sounds like Piranha-ish ey?) or also known as Doctor Fish. What they do is, they will nibble away the scaly and dead skin on your feet, and also ease the symptoms of skin conditions like psoriasis and abscesses (whatever that is). The nibbling process feels like micro-massage, and it promotes healthy blood circulation of the skin.
Here's a short clip of the Doctor Fish that I managed to record:
