Doctor Fish

Kangal fishes originate from the Middle East (in rivers and springs of Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Turkey & Syria.)

These fishes nibble on your dead skin cells by scrapping their tiny mouths against your skin, sort of like exfoliation, the natural way!

Now used in some of the more expensive spas in the world and the subject of much medical research, this fish supposedly releases some enzymatic secretion and dithranol – a component of dermatological creams which enhances the skin condition and helps new skin cells regenerate a little faster than usual.
