Somefin to touch your sole.

Byline: nathan bevan

HAVE you heard about this new beauty therapy where people stick their feet in warm water to have them nibbled by tiny, hungry fish?

No? Well I promise you that's what's happening.

In America (where else!) garra ruffa - a toothless water dweller known as "doctor fish" (that's one of the nippers above) - nibble away at dead skin while leaving healthy flesh untouched.

Unsightly calluses will be a thing of the past and they're even thought to cure psoriasis.

But, apparently, even people who don't have anything wrong with their feet are going along to have a session with their tootsies in the tank, purely because of their love of fish.

Just for the halibut, as it were.
