Did you guess? Wahanda Mob Deal – Fish Pedicure!

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 24 - 2010

Remember this post?  I hinted at today’s Wahanda Mob Deal.

How cool (and completely freaky) is this?

Aqua Sheko are offering a 30 minute fish pedicure treatment for a pretty amazing price of £12.  Saving 60% off the usual price of £30.  I’m in London and away from home today and tonight, but if I can get my iPhone working on the Wahanda site, I’m totally in!

From the Wahanda site:

The Garra Rufa, a native Turkish fish are also known as doctor fish, the tiny toothless carp thrive in warm water and live off anything available – including dead, flaking skin.

I’m having an “OMG that’s gross but I wanna try it anyway” moment.  I’m guessing that if you’re REALLY ticklish, you may want to give this one a miss… but I kinda like it *blush*.

Mr. L hates anything touching his feet, so I think I’d be going on my own… which doesn’t sound half as much fun – spoilsport!

Anyone else up for a nibble?  I mean bite?  I mean… um…. anyone else fancy it?

    I am addicted to pedicures, particularly during the summer when flip flops seem to destroy my heels, however this is one thing I won’t be going for.
    I’m super hygiene conscious and this just doesn’t seem hygienic to me. At least when you have a normal pedicure they can sanitise the foot spa and heat treat the tools or throw them away. How do you sanitise some smelly fish that have been sucking at someone elses toes?
    I’m sure the fish could spread infections. I read that the salon covers feet with plasters for anyone with open wounds, but what about tiny cuts in the feet that you can’t see.

    They’ve already banned the treatment in 14 US States.

    Maybe it’s just me being a bit OCD, but count me out on this one!
    I do love Wahanda though, being a London resident it’s perfect!
    I’m just waiting until my hair needs it’s next cut so I can use a hair voucher that I got for a cut and blow for £19. Luckily it is valid for 6 months! :-)

    I bet the fishies love it, a great source of yummy dead skin for their little fish tummies :D

  13. From the very first time I heard about this treatment I’ve been intrigued. But I’m the type of person who has a hard time even swimming in lakes because of the fish-skimming-past-me factor. So I’m far too wimpy and creeped out to do it. But I cannot wait to hear all about your experience. :)

  14. When I was out our friend’s lakehouse, the minnows come and nibble off your dried skin (for free – well, I don’t own the lakefront property). It felt weird, like I had an insect on me and I constantly looked down to make sure there wasn’t something else “kissing”. interesting though and between the sand and the fish, my feet and legs looked pretty good afterwards. =)
