With the opening of London’s first ever fish therapy spa, the Good Spa Spies were quick to plunge into action, and fight over which one of us would make the splash (I know, groan away…)
A new fish therapy spa, Aqua Sheko, just opened its doors in Kensington, on Monday 7th June. A popular beauty treatment in Asia, fish therapy is a relaxing way to remove dead skin from your feet as tiny fish gently suck and nibble away the dead skin, leaving your feet smooth and revitalised.
Fortunately, the fish have no teeth. They use a sucking motion to lift away dead skin painlessly, without damaging the new healthy cells underneath. This gives you, apparently, a pleasant tingling sensation similar to a light massage.
I took the bait and am booked in next week for a nibbly treat. I’m sure this is going to put my ticklish tendencies to the test, but I will keep you posted as to exactly what it en-tails. OK, OK, I’ll stop now!
