My first trip to a fish spa in Singapore

Ever been to a fish spa?  Do you know what a fish spa is?  When my friend, Taiwanna, was visiting in Singapore we visited Kenko to see what all the fuss was about.  I can't really remember but I think we spent 30 minutes with the fish. I can't recall what we paid, but it wasn't anything relative to the experience. 

At the start, the employee washes your feet and you're given slippers to wear.  Since we paid a little extra for a shoulder and neck massage, we had that service while we started with the smaller fish.  Approximately half way into our service, we were asked if we wanted to transfer to a different tank with larger fish. 

Personally, I think the smaller fish were ticklish.  The larger fish definitely have a stronger "bite", but there's no pain.  Think pins and needles after your arm goes numb, but much much less severe.  I could handle it, but Taiwanna didn't like it and just kept me company while waiting. 

The fish are thorough and go after your cuticles as well.  If you're sharing a tank with someone who has feet that are worse than yours, take note that the fish may abandon you for more "food".

All in all, I'd do it again ~ but I haven't.
