Over the weekend, I went for a fish spa session at Farmart.

What is fish spa?

“(Nov 11) SOME people squirm wildly and cry out as they thrash in a treatment pool. Other alarmed types thump the walls. Strong men, meanwhile, have been known to giggle.

These reactions are from Singaporeans being eaten alive by fish.

No, it’s not some sort of bizarre Jaws experience involving sharks and hot tubs. It’s a new craze catching on in a big way – fish therapy.

Tiny toothless Turkish spa fish, of the Garra rufa species, nibble off the dead skin on your hands and feet, leaving healthy skin to grow.

The feeling? Something between hundreds of tweezers and tiny suction cups gently pecking at your feet.

According to enthusiasts, the feeding sessions by these 9cm- to 12cm-long fish can leave you feeling massaged, glowing and with improved skin.

Many people also believe that the Doctor Fish therapy can cure problems like psoriasis, a disease that causes red, scaly patches to appear on the skin.

It’s become popular in Japan, South Korea, China and Europe, and three places offering this service have sprung up in Singapore over the past year.”

It was a fun couple of hours. Farmart is more then just a place for fish spa. There are also farms, shops and restaurants.

I think it’s true that children brings joy to our lives. It was certainly a fun day out!
