Dr. Fish

Dr. Fish is an interesting experience. You put your feet in a shallow pool of water and garra rufa fish - which nibble on the dead skin. Its fairly popular in Korea- they are big on skin treatments and exfoliation in general. So I had to try it out, and ended up going with Corinne this week. It reminded me of when we would put cheese between our toes and feed the fish, back when Dad had his boat. Only there were a lot more fish, and they actually chewed on your foot, not cheese.

Corinne took me, and had been before. She likes it and is less ticklish than I am.

This is me trying to be a good sport - holding my hands over my mouth so I don't yell and laying down so I can't see the fish. I tried hard, but was not a trooper. I wouldn't go back, but am glad I tried it out once. I think I will be just fine with scrubs at the jjimjilbang, or public bath, and a pumice stone, thank you very much!


  1. Bathtub: Check
    Tiny Fish: Check
    Dirty Feet: Check.

    I'm doing this. Right now.

  2. Loved the video!!!!! I don't want to try this. give the fish some food! They must be starving to attack new comers in that way. yuck.

  3. oh britney, i'll bet that does tickle. gram

  4. I would actually love to try this. But I am super ticklish too, so I understand your hesitation to go back again. I'm so glad you're having fun and trying all these new experiences. :)
