Hope the IVA rise doesn't knock Shirley's business too badly. 8 to 21%, that's a substantial increase, given the competition from the low-cost hairdressers.

True, but hopefully quality and professionalism will win out, and they appear to do a variety of treatments too, so fingers crossed.

Have waited for a good Fish Spa to open up as wouldn't touch the one in the souvenir / clothes shop with a barge pole!  So I was thrilled to see the Fish Spa & Wellness open along Pine Walk, where the estate agents shop used to be.  Very clean, the fish are healthy, UV working well in the tanks, water changed regularly through filter. There are sinks, soap, towels and foot covers to clean your feet before you have the treatment.

As we were the only two who go in (followed about 15 mins by a few locals who had been humming and haaing about it until they saw us go in),  we actually had each foot in a separate tank which allowed more fish to nibble away at any dead skin.  I know some people wont like this treatment, but I love it - as long as the environment is clean and healthy all round.   We were settled in by Helena and given a glass of cava each.  One of the locals suggested putting the cava into the water to make the fish happier!  :o  We had the 20 mins treatment, and loved every second of it.  I do hope it keeps up its high standards as I will definitely be returning!

20 mins €15
30 mins €20

Wow! That looks fun! Like the glass of cava too. Never tried this as the health issue worried me but this place looks nice and clean.

Did it feel strange Bella? Not sure how I would feel having something nibbling my feet - maybe thats why they give you the cava as after a couple of glasses - who cares!  ;D

It doesnt feel like any sort of bite at all, as the fish have no teeth thank goodness!!  More like a lot of very gentle pinching I suppose. Obviously strange for the first minute or so if its your first time, but quite soothing when you have accepted that it wont hurt!  ;)
