Splashdown! New Fish Spa lands prime position in Chesterfield Market Hall

My Fresh Feet, a revolutionary new fish spa, has opened at Chesterfield Market Hall. The local Member of Parliament, Toby Perkins, was reeled in to officially open the store last Saturday as he set the example for those locals not entirely forthcoming about its river-sourced method of foot relaxation and exfoliation. Customers can submerge their feet in tanks of Garra Rufu fish, before enjoying a foot massage to help ease those aches and pains of daily life.

Although the fish spa concept is relatively new to the UK, many of its practices have been used around the world for centuries. Spanning over the past 400 years, fish spa treatment is a unique and natural pedicure method originating from the outdoor hot springs of Kangal, Turkey and practiced all over the Far East. My Fresh Feet uses Garra Rufa fish for pedicures which quite literally eat away any toxins and dead skin, improving blood supply and wellbeing.

Mr. Perkins, one of the first people to visit the store after the fish arrived literally days before the official opening, said:-

“Looking down at the water tanks full of Garra Rufu I was a little hesitant, but after a few minutes when it became clear that the fish were not direct descendants of Jaws himself, I enjoyed the treatment which did make a difference. On a serious note, it is great to see new and exciting businesses come to our town and I think Chesterfield itself should be proud that emerging industries want to make the most of the many opportunities which have been created here over the last 13 years. So many local businesses are feeling the pinch at the moment, so it is encouraging to see new enterprises like Fresh Feet bringing jobs and proving new and exiting services to local people”.
