Ever pay good money to get bitten?
Now’s your chance.
Trust me, it’s fun.
Okay okay, getting more serious here. I was invited to Kenko Fish Spa at Pavilion not too long ago to enjoy a full day Fish Spa Top to Toe package service.
Located on the fifth floor of Pavilion, right next to Red Box, Kenko is a 4 months old one-of-a-kind spa that breeds fish to ‘feed’ on humans and built in a shopping mall (believe it or not it’s the world’s only shopping mall’s spa centre).
I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived at the centre, all I know there will be a lot of small fishes nibbling at my feet. Sounds… erm… cute~~~? So I followed exactly what the spa lady old me to do, wash my feet and slipped into a pair of light green flip-flops.
I supposed they don’t want my stinky feet to kill the fish.
I later pranced onto the wooden plank and began feasting. Or being feasted on.
Kenko has a very nice oasis kinda setting for people to relax and let these little lovelies do the exfoliating for you.
The moment I got near the edge of the wooden plank, the group of fish swam close by as though knowing there’s food. It scared me a bit.
As I sat down crossed legged beside the huge aquarium, I observed these adult Garra Rufa fish as they circled beneath me, as though calling out for me.
I descended my left foot slowly. Here’s a video.
Saw or not, I kicked at the end because it was so ticklish
The moment you enter the tip of your sole, group of fish came up sending electrifying current up your nervous system.
It was ticklish!
I can’t help but to draw my feet up again. But it was fun. Ticklish, scary, but fun.
And oh so cute!
Apart from piranhas, this one the only types of fish I know that loves the sight of human flesh, or more so, skin.
Soon I was enjoying the sight, feel and experience of being nibbled on. It was utterly refreshing! Though it looked as if my legs have been mutilated into something hairy with swaying large tentacles sprouting from every corner.
“Help I’m morphing into something horrendous!”
The Garra Rufa fish originates from Turkey Hot Spring, brought in by the Koreans and Japanese and used to treat skin disorders which have improvised into a lifestyle spa treatment as it is now.
In Kenko, you can choose between the adult fish, or the baby fish. For the faint hearted, I suggest to start with the babies.
“oh.. my thick swaying hairs have reduced to thin swaying hairs”
After the adults’ attack, these felt like small nibbles only.
Kenko charges RM38 for a 30-minute fish spa which I thought was very cheap considering it’s situated in the hearth of KL and inside one of the most expensive shopping malls.
After the fish spa, my legs felt dead skin free. Man that felt good. It was time to move on to the next step - the Foot Massage.
Leslie was my masseur of the afternoon. If any of you visit Kenko, call for Leslie, he’s good. I fell in love with his fingers.
“I used to massage till my fingers bled, because you need to use a lot of finger-tip strength; but now I’m better in techniques, it doesn’t hurt anymore.” Leslie said.
My eyes nearly bulged out but Leslie just smiled in response. Did I say he’s good in making you feel good?
It was from this,
The towel looked like baby footwear
And finally to this,
Leslie, I have one thing to say to you.
You have orgasmic fingers.
Two and a half hours of sheer bliss. I came out refreshed, relaxed and in a dreamy state.
