Kenko Reflexology and Fish Spa

No, i am not going to talk about food today. Even if the fishes are edible, i would doubt you will want a bite after i tell you what they do as a job and in their free time.

The fishes that i am blogging about are no longer a stranger to Malaysian waters and feet. Yes you read right, feet. Imported all the way from the land of "Turkish Delight", Turkey, this fishes are bought in to bite away dead skin.

They look like tiny vacuum cleaners sucking away at your feet, telling you that you are the King and he/she is to serve you by kissing you at your toes.

Before i put my feet in, it was all peaceful.

Then i squirmed and laughed away, getting tickled where it felt the most. Apparently, the more fish you attract, the more dead skin you have. Go wonder why i was surrounded.

Among the ripples, spot the big brothers, these fishes were a good 2-3 time bigger then the small little anchovies in the beginner's area.

Verdict: For RM38, you are entitled to be tickled by fishes for 30 minutes, with the amount of dead skin i have, it was barely visible that they had done a job, let alone a good job. Bear in mind, you will be lifting your legs in and out of the water due to the tickling, that is going to waste you some time. Other then that, it is a good novelty to just seat down and relax in a pool of common water soaked by many other people's feet, may i add with fishes serving you.

Address:
Lot 5.01.09, Level 5, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur
10am - 10pm (I advice you to go early, when the crowd is less so more attention can be given to you, and of course less embarassment when you start bursting in tear of laughter.

Wow! You've actually tried it eh? So better than having a foot scrub then?? Hahhaha!!! Just sit there and relax rather than do the job yourself.

Ever since I read Jackson's blog about this unusual form of pampering, I have been wondering... is there such a thing as a fish bath? WHat happens if you immerse yourself fully? Surely there is dead skin all over your body, rather than just at your feet.
