Fish Spa Exfoliation

Spa treatment in China pushes the ewwww! limit

If you're partner leaves for work before you've had your first coffee, kiss your chance for a quickie body scrub goodbye - and put up with scaly elbows for the day. Until now.

The Fish Spa in Huizhou, south China's Guangdong Province is marketing itself as the hippest way to shed your snakeskin ways.

The Garra Rufa, a small tropical fish found in the Fishy Spa TreatmentsFishy Spa TreatmentsMiddle East, eats dead skin from trend-setting spa goers. All you have to do is climb in the tub with them. The little critters thrive in hot water - at least 109F (43C) - and feed on dead and diseased flesh. They claim it doesn't hurt, and you're left with softer, smoother skin in under an hour.

Personally, the idea creeps me out. There's no way I want to re-enter the food chain as fish food. But my curiosity is peaked.

Wonder if a snug fitting rubber suit keeps them from camping out you know where???
