Life is all about new experiences.

Winter might be good for watering crops and making puddles for kids to get muddy in, it can be hell for your body’s most abused appendages – your feet. After spending three months shoved into patent-leather prisons, it’s no wonder they sometimes feel the need to wave angry metaphorical placards and generally get up to cracked and dry shenanigans. The Dr Fish, like a superhero, riot policeman and expert beauty therapist all rolled into one, calms rebellious paws better than a pumice-stone. While you kick back in the warm and soothing atmosphere of a chic salon and suspend your feet in the water – like everyone does at the pool in summer – the Dr Fish goes to work on your feet, leaving them soft, smooth and rebellion free.
Smaller than your average chocolate bar and often naturally found in the outdoor pools of Turkish spas, the Dr Fish is nature’s very own exfoliator. More effective than walking barefoot on beach sand, the Garra Rufa literally nibbles away dead, dry or otherwise unhealthy skin. Many people say that Garra Rufa possess some sort of healing powers, probably because even the flakiest feet are magically refreshed, renewed and reinvigorated after a treatment.Fishy Fact: The first Garra Rufa fish used in spas in Eastern Europe belonged to Ernest Crotzchikie, a baker who also specialized in breeding exotic fish. After the explosion of Garra Rufa popularity, he took to hiding the fish behind a pot-plant whenever people visited him.
