Sole fish like a nibble in Stevenage
THERE were fishy things afloat in Comet country as a company offering a new spa treatment opened its doors.
Shoal to Sole in Stevenage offers a foot treatment with a difference – a fish pedicure.
Clients submerge their feet in a square sterilised tank filled with 110 – 120 small fish called Garra rufa or Dr Fish as they are sometimes known.
The fish, which have no teeth, then surround the feet and exfoliate them.
The centuries-old treatment originates from Kanga in Turkey where the fish are found.

Owner Sasha Walker from Letchworth GC said: “We have had a fantastic response and great feedback from people. This is what these fish naturally do, the natural enzyme that they produce helps produce new skin regeneration.
“The treatment is good for hard skin, psoriasis and eczema. A lady came in earlier who had never had it done before and immediately booked again for tomorrow.”
