Swimming With the Fishes

Latest spa craze: fish pedicures. SAY WHAT??

Turns out DC Area spa, Yvonne Hair and Nails, is using tiny carp (aka garra rufa or doctor fish) to nibble off dead skin cells from clients' feet. According to reports from customers it doesn't hurt, the sensation is close to the way you feel when your feet fall asleep. Plus, people swear the fish have been able to rid their feet of unwanted calluses and corns. Not too bad...

Anyone up to take a road trip to DC for a first hand account?
