I’m constantly checking to make sure the water doesn’t go below 70 degrees, and I don’t want them to work too hard. One pedicure and they get a rest.

Arlington, VA (PRWEB) March 7, 2010

On Saturday, March 6 Yvonne’s Day Spa opened at Market Square at Potomac Yard, complete with 10,000+ employees, most of whom are garra rufa fish. The fish, well known in the Middle East and Asia as “doctor fish”, are minnow-like and toothless, and gently ‘kiss’ the skin of the feet delivering an invigorating pedicure. Customers immerse their feet in individual baths of warm water and 200 garra fish, and relax while the fish clean their feet.
