Garra Spa - Fish Pedicure

Last week I experienced my first ever Garra Spa treatment at the gorgeous Taylor Made Salon on Wigmore Street.

There has been a lot of media coverage on this treatment in magazines recently so I was keen to try it out and see if it lived up to the hype. It certainly did!

The treatment itself involves the tiny garra rufa fish eating the dead skin off your feet, leaving them silky soft! Fear not, it isn’t as scary as it sounds. The fish don’t have teeth, they act more like a little vacuum sucking away the dead skin. I thought I’d find the experience extremely ticklish but it was actually very relaxing, it felt as though the fish were gently massaging my feet. I’ll definitely be going back and having this treatment done before I go on my holidays.

What I thought was lovely about this Garra Spa treatment was that the tank is designed to be big enough for two people, so you can go along with a friend and make a girly day of it. I think this would also be good if you were a little bit nervous to try the treatment, having a friend with you for a little bit of reassurance. I however, was far too fascinated watching the fish to even read a magazine, never-mind remember I was actually a bit scared of fish! 

The tank is dark enough to allow you privacy whilst receiving the treatment, but still allows you to see the fish working away at your feet. I totally understand the hype and will be recommending this treatment to all my friends.
