Has anyone heard about the use of small toothless carp as a pedicure? I have just posted a bit about it on my blog

I am still waiting for permission to post an image illustrating it.

so you put your feet in a pool and the carp nibble at the dead skin?
what sort of facilities would you require to set that up as a business?
can't see it taking off tbh.
unless the carp do tips as well

I've experinced this - it sounds sooooo weird I know, but it is brilliant, tickly and really funny.

I went last year with a group of girlfriends to a Spa in South East Asia (when I lived there) and they had this big pool, we all sat on the side chatting with drinks with our toes in the water while the little fishys nibbled our toes, ankles and legs for about 20 mins, such a cool experience and the smoothest my feet have EVER been.

It's sounds weird, but if you ever get the chance to try this you must grin

I can feel my gorge rising

I would be kicking like a donkey. And probably killing most of the fish.

I liked it better before I read the link and
just thought that if theres one thing fish
need even less than a bicycle...
