Give Your Feet A Treat
At Silky Feet you can enjoy natural pedicures using Garra Rufa fish. During the treatment, the fish suck and nibble away the dry skin from your feet leaving healthy and rejuvenated skin. Our treatments are a great individual or group pampering experience and are quickly becoming very popular.
Submerge your feet into a warm pool of finned therapists for an exotic exfoliation by a team of tiny mouths. All you do is sit back and allow yourself to be mesmerized by the flash of silvery scales as they dart through the water.
Originally from southern Turkey and northern Syria, for centuries Garra Rufa fish (also known as Doctor Fish) have been known for softening and cleansing the skin of people who bathed in hot springs where the fish darted about. As the legend goes, the healing powers of the fish were discovered in modern times by a shepherd and his flock in Turkey in 1917. Apparently he stumbled into marshy ground with an injured foot and found the open wound besieged by these little fish. The wound healed and eventually word got out to the outside world about these efficacious little "man-eaters".
Worldwide, these Dr. Fish have made a name for themselves as "bio-therapists", "dermatologists" and "pedicurists". Members of the carp family, this species of fish thrives in hot water (up to 43 degrees centigrade!), which make them ideal "hot plunge pool companions"
It sounds crazy, but don't knock it until you try it – it is surprisingly fun. These normally vegetarian fish home in on areas of dry skin, especially around heels and soles of the feet and finger nails. For a psoriasis sufferer, the fish target the plaques (areas of sore, red and thickened skin.
Even The British Association of Dermatologists believes that this gentle, comfortable removal of superfluous skin aids exfoliation, particularly for psoriasis sufferers, since "it may help topical medications to penetrate". While it has reputed medical benefits, this is also a relaxing and effective beauty treatment, meaning it's for anyone with an enquiring mind, a taste for the exotic and a penchant for pumice stones.
