Exotic Foot Spa

Who wants a foot spa?

What do you have in mind?

…jojoba oil, olive oil, Vitamin E, lavender oil, tea tree foot soak, peppermint, lemon foot soak…
Do you have a favorite foot spa salon or do you want to do it at home?
A few weeks back, my students and I went to songkhla aquarium for an educational tour. As locals here they definitely know the place better than I do. They introduced me to this exotic foot spa where they frequently come. It is a fish foot spa to be exact. I couldn’t have imagined a foot spa in an aquarium park.  But anyway, it’s,  I think,  creative somehow as it doubly boosts tourism in this place.  While the kids are enjoying inside the aquarium Mom and Dad could have a bit of a bonding in the fish foot spa, or all the family members could enjoy this after a tiring tour inside the aquarium.

In a fish foot spa you are going to soak your feet in a tank of water for 20 to 30 minutes. In just a few seconds your feet will be swarmed by fish nibbling at your feet. This dead-skin-nibbling fish are called garra rufa popularly known as Doctor fish. If you’re ticklish then you’ll have endless time giggling.  I did not try it though I got scared. My imagination went overdrive lol. I thought of the movies “Piranha” and “Jaws”.  Yeah I know it’s really a bit too much of me to think that. Despite the realization of the superfluousness of my imagination, I still could not bring myself to do it. On a serious note, I had a bit of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) syndrome attack. I was not particularly sure if they change water in the tank. If they do, how often? What if I precede someone who has athletes foot for example.  Anyway,I was just being cautious.

My kids had a blast.

It was approved by their parents. So I did not stand in the way of their enjoyment. ^_^
