Foot massage for Father’s Day
15 June 2018 | Life Style
Father’s Day is a day when fathers are celebrated for all the efforts they have mustered up for their families throughout the year.
Since the reopening of the Bonus Mark in the central business district of Swakopmund, the Zen Fish Spa provides services which relax both women and men.
The spa uses freshwater fish which are sourced from a river in the south to eat dead skin off the client’s feet. This provides a wonderful opportunity to spoil your father with this rare foot treatment which will leave him feeling so much better.
“The fish are found in local Namibian dams. They are vegetarian bottom feeders. They do not have teeth, therefore they cannot bite you.”
“They peck the dead skin from your feet as they see this as a source of food, which in turn benefits you and them,” explained the Zen Fish Spa’s owner, Kelly Beukes.
For kilometres dads walk around making ends meet to ensure that there is food on the table for their families and they are often subjected to stressful situations at work. The Zen Fish Spa treatment would be one they would definitely enjoy.
Beukes further explained that Zen Fish Spa makes sure that the fish are well taken care of. This ensures that clients receive the best experience when the make an appointment for the treatment. The treatment is so unique that it is the only place in Namibia where it is done.
“Our fish are kept very clean, we do a 50% water change to our fish bath every third day. These are not the Garra rufa fish found in Thailand, as they are illegal in Namibia, so please do not expect the same treatment as available in Thailand, our treatment is unique to Namibia, and only available at Zen Fish Spa,” said Beukes.
