Garra Rufa

Garra Rufa


This relaxing treatment begins with washing the area of the body to be treated, to remove any remaining creams or chemical products that might affect our Turkish fish. We then submerge your feet in the fish tank and the “experts” begin to work. After thirty minutes of tickling, your skin is ready for a massage with moisturizing cream that reaches all the way to the dermis layer since your pores are completely clean.

The result: exfoliated, deeply moisturized skin and a relaxing feeling that extends to the rest of your body.
