It was one of the most disgusting experience I've ever had. I hated the view of that much fishes sucking my feet. Ewww! But the result was quite nice, smooth skin. I did it because my son really wanted, what can you do when you adorable son ask you something that really sounds reasonable?! You JUST DO IT! It does... More

What a unique experience! I love trying new things so this was right up my alley. It feels like tiny little bubbles on your feet. The store was very clean and the staff was very professional. You even get a nice foot massage after your feet are done soaking.

Yes, it tickles like crazy. So what's so bad about the giggles? The staff at Wayan are so friendly and nice and I picked up some nice woven jewelry to take home. Was told by others that the treatment was very expensive in Europe and elsewhere. Very inexpensive, but my husband's expressions were priceless! Fifth Avenue was delightful and the... More

So many people have told me they would NEVER do this. Boy, are they missing a truly unique experience! I guess it could be described as ticklish, but that's not accurate. My husband says hundreds of little kisses! Uh - not sure of that either. The small ones get between your toes and flutter their little fins. Just don't know... More

Passing thru the airport, my wife saw this and someone else having it done. Decided it looked fun. The whole time she said it tickled, don't know if it works, but the fish feasted on her feet.

I have contemplated doing this several times. This was not exfoliating experience like it was said to be. My feet got softer only due to soaking them for 20 minutes. I got a little grossed out thinking about how many others before me had fungus feet, warts, etc..I am sure it is safe and I am glad I tried it... More
