A spa or water treatment is an effective relaxation especially this summer. Yas Waterworld in Abu Dhabi introduces “Fish Spa”.
A fish spa has thousands of tiny fish called Garra Rufa or the doctor fish nibbling away at dead skin on the feet.
“Few people know that the Garra Rufa treatment is native to this part of the world. It is a fun experience — and could be quite funny as the nibbling fish can leave you with a tickling sensation. The first few park visitors to try it this weekend absolutely loved it!” said Mike Oswald, Park General Manager.
The spa, named Pedi Pond, was welcomed by visitors, many of whom queued up to try the unique pedicure experience.
Pedi Pond uses more than 13,000 Garra Rufa fish in its tank at all times specially bred on a farm in Germany and is the first ones to be available for commercial foot spa treatments in Abu Dhabi.
Additional exciting activity is the park will allow everyone to take pictures of the moment when fish spa clients first experience the fish and the tickling sensation brought about by the nibbling.
“Few people know that the GarraRufa treatment is native to this part of the world with the fish originally coming from Turkey, Iraq and Syria. It’s a real fun experience – and could be quite funny as the nibbling fish can leave you with a tickling sensation. The first few park visitors to try it this weekend absolutely loved it!” said by the Park General Manager.
