Fish Pedicure: Would You Dare?

Michele Zipp

OK, this isn't exactly new news, but Daily Buzz wasn't around when something really fishy became a "hot" spa treatment. It turns out that if you stick your feet in a tank of garra rufa fish, also known as doctor fish, the little buggers will nibble away at the dead skin and calluses for an ultimate pedicure. This practice, according to CBS, started in Turkey and then became popular in some Asian countries.

The fish are toothless and some ladies who had the treatment (5,000 as of late-July in a Virginia salon) say it was the best pedi they ever had. 

Um...I am all about getting pedicures, but toothless fish nibbling on my tootsies? Not so much.

What do you think of this? Would you try it?
