Fish Spa? Really? Yay or nay?

So fish spar's have been around in the UK for some time now. Im not sure just how long but just last month my town opened a store which has a fish spa in one of the side rooms so i just had to check it out.

So a fish spa is there you sit down and have tiny little fish called Doctor fish feed on your skin. They take away all the bad or infected skin leaving fresh soft skin. Great if you have hard heels!
Doctor fish are made up of two different species Garra Rufa and Cyprinion macrostomus.

Iv never, ever had a fish spa and i never will. Like several american states and Canada provinces i feel the fish spar is totally unsanitary and is a risk to peoples health.

Think about it. If a doctor fish feeds on an infected wound or piece of skin that person may get rid of whatever problem they have. But the same fish is then going to feed on the next customer which may just have dead skin and no big problem. Therefore that person is in serious risk of then getting that infection.
The staff do not change the water in the tank either so your putting your feet in dirty water that all of their customers prior to you have had their feet in. Disgusting huh?

So next time you feel like going to take a fish spa or if your thinking of taking one for the first time, Take this post into consideration.

So here is the question...Fish spa...Yay or nay?

What do you think about fish spas?

Have a brilliant day.
