it was not the fi that put me off but how many other feet have been in the tank. it did have a water pump but it did not make me faal better

I really want to have that done, there is a place near me that has just started doing it.
I must get round to booking it.

I've done it - twas lush!
Although then I came home and googled it and discovered all the people that are trying to ban it on the grounds of hygiene and animal cruelty.
On balance, it wasn't a good enough treatment to push all those other 'issues' out of my mind. I did really enjoy it though - DSis hated it and got all squirmy.

It's just like being tickled under water, doesn't hurt at all. They don't bite at you, they just suck the skin off. I have to say, for it to be really effective, you need to do it 2-3 time a week for at least 30 minutes.
