Have you ever had your feet nibbled on by little fish? It’s amazing! I had a Fish Pedicure tonight and I can’t believe how soft and beautiful they are. I’m rubbing my man’s legs with my feet, and he’s enjoying them as much as I am. I wouldn’t have dreamed of brushing my calloused feet up and down his legs last night. My feet were dreadful. I think they scared the manicurist when she saw them today. I’m a high heel and boot wearer, and my feet show it after the winter months. When the weather breaks, I treat myself to pedicures regularly. I start off the season with a Fish Pedicure. I’m telling you, it’s so relaxing. Once you have one, you’ll make an appointment for another before you leave the salon.
Yvonne’s Hair and Nail Salon in Alexandria, VA is the only place in the country that uses this method. Yvonne’s has been featured on The View, CNN, and in major newspapers around the country. Her shop is 1 1/2 hours away from me, but it’s so worth the trip. I usually schedule a manicure, The Fish Pedicure as well as their regular pedicure when I go. The Fish Pedicure consists of a 15 or 30 minute foot soak in a tank full of tiny carp, who eat off the dead skin. The carp had their work cut out for them today, I choose the 30 minute session. My feet are as smooth as a baby’s butt now.
The salon serves wine, water or soft drinks while you’re indulged. Between the wine and the carp nibbling at your toes, there is alot of giggling going on. They also wrap a warm and soothing towel around your neck to help you relax. Next, they bring trays of lotions and salts for you to smell and than choose your pleasure. The flavors consist of citrus, sea breeze, cappuccino, and lavender. They’re used to massage your feet and legs after the pedicures. I choose the citrus this time.
Once your Fish Pedicure is completed, they move you into a massage chair. Your back, butt, and thighs are massaged while they continue to buff your feet. Once that is completed, they lay you completely back in the chair, oil your feet and wrap them in plastic for 5 – 10 minutes to allow the oil to pentrate. They buff them again to ensure they’ve removed all layers of dead skin. You are truly pampered from head to toe. My feet feel like I’ve lost 30 lbs off of them. Oh, how I wish that were true for the rest of me. I was driving home thinking, how light they felt. I have an appointment for a regular pedicure in two weeks. I can’t wait to go back.
This technique has been used in Turkey and Asian countries for years. The owners of Yvonne’s Hair and Nails decided to try the technique in the States and it became a major success. Approximately, 10,000 women from across the country have taken the plunge.It’s an experience that you won’t forget. If you’re ever in the area, you must make an appointment.
