It was a dread whenever the weekend is here.  My usual weekend yoga routine now is replaced with loitering routine at the mall and not forgetting, spending more $$$ buying more shoes! Sigh… Wondering how long do we have to wait for the classes to resume.

One of the weekend when I was loitering in Mid Valley, I stumbled upon a very interesting foot reflexology called Kenko Reflexology & Fish Spa.

The Garra Rufa fish foot spa has been an ‘in’ thing nowadays. Since we have nothing much to do, we decided to gave it a try. We just did it for fun and out of curiosity. Not a bad experience after all having your foot nibbled by fishies. Those tiny fishies you see in the above pic is nothing. You should try a bigger ones and I mean really big ones like the size of two thumbs putting together!

The fish spa is supposed to be good for those with skin problems like eczema and psoriasis. Apparently, the Dr. Fish helps to clear away scaly and dead skin by nibbling on your foot thus allowing new skin to grow. For a 30minutes session, RM38 is not cheap but it is definitely worth the experience.  The whole 30minutes fish spa included a routine of occasionally leg lifting (hey, this is part of Yogaing), lots of squealing and controlled giggles.  After a while the foot started to get the hang of these nibbling.  It is quite therapeutic I would think.

The end result – the skin is smoother and cleaner especially on the back of the heels.  I would advise you to apply some moisturizer after the session.  Not sure about you but I do felt my skin is a bit dry from all the nibbling. I would return for another experience, simply because it is such a bizarre and amusing way to have my legs exfoliated.
