The idea behind it actually comes from Turkey, even though most people think it is a tradition started in China or Japan. In Turkey the fish live in large outdoor pools at Turkish spas and are used after Turkish baths.
So we arrived at Strands and we were taken upstairs to their beauty area. They offer nail extensions, spray tans and upright sunbeds. We then sat down in some very big and very comfy leather chairs and instructed to remove our shoes and socks. The beauty therapist whose name I cannot remember (sorry!) then used hot towels to cleanse our feet. The tank was a very large rectangle shape with a padded bench over it. We then had to climb on to a padded bench via a little padded box and dangle our feet into the tank.
