Foot-eating fish

File this one under disgusting-but-on-second-thought-I-might-try-this.

Since razors are no longer a legal way for pedicurists to remove dead skin from callused feet, there hasn’t been a good alternative way to do the job... until now. In a spa in Alexandria, VA, customers can soak their feet in a tank of tiny carp, allowing the “doctor fish” to nibble away only at the dead skin, leaving the live, healthy skin behind.

Slightly nauseating but intriguing at the same time, this method has proven itself to be quite effective not only at giving people smooth feet but also at bringing attention to the Yvonne Hair and Nails Salon, the only place at the moment that offers this treatment.
