They ate my dead cells

Before leaving Manila last Saturday, my friend, Cluadette, invited me for a stroll at Ocean Park. My flight was scheduled at seven in the evening so i still had ample time. After fetching her in Makati, we went straight ahead to Ocean Park. Been to Manila several times but this was our first time to visit the park. Weve heard so much about it and it did impress us when we were there. No wonder they call it the first "state-of-the-art Oceanarium, open water marine habitat,." Aside from marine attraction, it also contains boutique mall, restaurant row and function facilities all located in one complex. As we went inside, Claudette and i was so amazed with so many species of marine creatures, big and small. It was so entertaining that we forgot about what we wanted to try here, the fish spa.
After the tour, we went staright to the second floor for the fish spa. They say its good for those who have skin desease. the spa utilizes what they call Doctor fish. "The fish are like combfishes in that they only consume the affected and dead areas of the skin, leaving the healthy skin to grow, with the outdoor location of the treatment bringing beneficial effects. These little dermatologists are used there to give relief to people with various skin disorders, including eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis."
As i soaked my feet in the pool, school of Doctor Fish immediately swarmed my feet and start working. It tickles and we were so noisy at pool spa, laughing as the fish slowly scraped the dead skin out of our feet. Its refreshing and it really cleaned our feet. I can't wait to visit again soon.
