decided to try out the new fad of the fish pedicure after studying animal care at college and covering the new practice. I will be honest I was a little dubious of the effectiveness of the treatment to start with, but there is no question of the quality.
we dropped in out of the blue and booked an appointment for 2pm, the staff were already very friendly and welcoming.
upon returning we were ushered to one of the seating areas, and removed our socks and shoes. the friendly assistant checked our feet over, making sure that they were okay to go in with the fish. after the check we had our feet washed and it was into the tanks.
being a guy, and a ticklish one at that, it wasn't the easiest thing to go ahead and do, but I am so glad I did. the fish do tickle a little bit, but the sensation is different from a tickle, and is more tingly and pleasant we had our 20 minutes in the tank, and an extra 5 minutes while some other customers were taken care of.
after that our feet were dried and we were taken over to receive our leg and foot massage, as well as a complimentary drink. the staff are incredible easy to talk to and experts at their craft, and the fish work brilliantly at making feet soft and smooth. I wasn't expecting my soles to be as soft as they are now, and the treatment is definitely worth it.
and after 20 minutes in the tank and a relaxing foot massage with foot cream, it only came to £15, which topped off the day perfectly.
overall there is no way to beat the quality and atmosphere of the salon, and even though it seems to be an effeminate thing to do, it is perfect or guys as well. well worth the visit, and I will definitely be going again!
