Today Yu, Danni, Lisa and I went to try out the Garra Rufa fish treatment at a local spa as a way to celebrate and relax now that it's getting towards the end of term. I have heard wonderful things about these treatments and despite being a little bit nervous I was really looking forward to it. The spa was really nicely decorated and smelt amazing and the atmosphere was really relaxing. The lady in the spa was also really nice and friendly and made me feel a lot less nervous about it all!

When I first put my feet in the tank I was completely freaked out- The feeling of all these little fish was very tickly and I pulled my feet out straight away. Luckily, when I put my feet back in, I soon got used to it and began to relax as the little critters nibbled away at the dead skin on my feet and legs.
After a 15 minute treatment, I pulled my feet out of the tank and dried them off before applying a peppermint and lemongrass moisturiser. After doing a bit of shopping (pictures of my purchases at some point this week!) I came home expecting to unveil completely dry skin free feet. Unfortunately whilst my toes seemed to have less dry skin, there appeared to be very little noticeable difference to the rest of my feet. I guess if you went on a more regular basis it would have more of an effect but I don't know if I would. Saying that, it was very relaxing and it was nice to take the weight off my feet for a while and I think if you went for a couple of sessions you would start to see a difference.
Would you ever try this out? How do you look after your feet?
