I personally think it's..

Disgusting, this is the right word to describe it!

A friend of mine was recently in Japan, and told me about his spa experience there. Apparently they have what they call 'the magic fashionable fish spa', where small fishes would be eating the dead skin on your toes and legs. I would never imagine myself doing such a thing! He described it as ticklish, but I would say ewww..

if you're interested to know more, or want to go to Japan and experience something different, you can read more about it...

'At such a spa, many Garra Rufa, a type of small tropical fish, also nicknamed Chinchin Yu, nibble fish or simply doctor fish, are put in hot springs. As they can live and swim freely in at least 43-degree-hot waters, they are naturally used for the treatment of skin diseases in such spas.

When placed in the spa, these fish can feed themselves on the dead cells of the human body, since they only consume such cells, leaving the healthy skin of the human body to grow. The whole process is reportedly free of pain. It won't hurt and the bather might feel a pleasant tingling on his or her skin.

The fish species are often found in the river basins in the Middle East, including Syria, Iraq, Iran and Turkey, and thus is also called Turkish Fish. It is legally protected from commercial exploitation in Turkey due to concerns over harvesting for export.'
