Is there an ongoing investigation as to whether these treatments can pass on diseases like Hepatitis?

Dunno, link?

OMG this has to be one of most gross things sweeping this country at the moment. Why would you want to put your feet in a big bowl that has had other peoples feet in and god only what they had. Sorry but I do have standards Ewwwww makes me shudder the thought. PS read this.

Yeah, there was an article on the Beeb's website - bbc.co.uk/new…809

This was up about 2-3 days AFTER me and t'other half had one!! It was pretty cool but the potential health issues have put us off. Might be 'health and safety gone mad' but I don't think they change the water between sessions or anything so it can't be 100% healthy.

Interesting experience nonetheless!

I guess it depends on the place.

From what I understand, most places check people's feet first. Plus I'm sure these places have been given the OK by environmental health, etc.

Won't be using it myself, but thought it was still a good price compared to what you'd normally pay.

Seems a good price but:

* New innovative treatment * Salon with 15 years of experience


Isn't that a bit of a contradiction?!?

This procedure has been outlawed in many US states because of the potential harm.
No thanks.

Tried it, its ok, but the same price you can buy a top quality exfoliant and seems to do the same job. I.e. the fish just eat the dead skin. Wouldn't go again.
