Somefin to touch your sole

Aug 3 2008 by Nathan Bevan, Wales On Sunday

HAVE you heard about this new beauty therapy where people stick their feet in warm water to have them nibbled by tiny, hungry fish?

No? Well I promise you that’s what’s happening.

In America (where else!) garra ruffa – a toothless water dweller known as “doctor fish” (that’s one of the nippers above) – nibble away at dead skin while leaving healthy flesh untouched.

Unsightly calluses will be a thing of the past and they’re even thought to cure psoriasis.

But, apparently, even people who don’t have anything wrong with their feet are going along to have a session with their tootsies in the tank, purely because of their love of fish.

Just for the halibut, as it were.
