One of the craziest things our family saw in Southeast Asia was the whole Fish Massage for your feet in Cambodia!
Imagine a big tank of water sitting in the middle of the street. Sometimes it’s not even a tank but the inflatable pool your kids had in the backyard last summer. Then hundreds of fish swimming around waiting for someone to stick their hands or feet in.
Fish Massage for Your Feet Now Big in NYC
A friend said fish massages for your feet are now big in NY with the upscale spa centers costing hundreds of dollars per hour. Well friends, in the overwhelming heat of Cambodia’s night scene, you can not only find a way to cool off your feet but have your skin cleaned up too for $3.
20 Minutes for $3
The fish will nibble away at all your dead skin cells at $3 for 20 minutes. And when all the dead skin cells are gone, they swim away. 🙂
I have to admit, Fish Massage isn’t my thing. It doesn’t sound appealing to me. But Pascaline went crazy over it! If it was up to her, she would have put her whole body in! She said the feeling of all those wiggly, tiny mouths sucking on her fingers was the BEST feeling in the world.
What do you think? Does a fish massage for your feet sound appealing? Can you imagine the summer festivals having big tanks of cleaner fish this year, selling Fish Massages?
The locals love fish massage for your feet. They’d get in line and just dangle their feet over the edge of the tank…completely relaxed as gobs of fish nibbled on their toes.
I LOVE Thai Massage, but when it comes to a fish massage for your feet…I think I’ll stick with Swedish Massage.
