Improving the appearance of your feet and hands with a pedicure or a manicure is a very relaxing process. It's a way most of us pamper and de-stress ourselves. But, have you ever thought of the same process done by fishes? Yes, you heard me right; it's called ‘Fish pedicure' or ‘Fish manicure'.
Garra rufa, is a kind of nibble fish also known as doctor fish which is used for fish pedicure or manicure. This practice originated in Turkey about 400 years back where these fishes were used for various healing processes. With the increasing demand in therapy, they are now exported to Asian countries. These fish survive in warm water and are toothless. They nibble away the dead skin of your feet or hands leaving them clean and soft thus aiding in growth of healthy skin. As they are toothless, they cannot bite on live skin and hence are safe.
