Be Sure to Get the Right Doctor Fish!!!

Controversy: “Doctor” Fish Reflexology Spas
A fish reflexology spa controversy has erupted. In addition to concerns about the cleanliness of the water and spread of disease, there are reports of the wrong fish being utilized. Instead of the correct garra rufa fish, fake garra rufa are being employed such as chin chin fish which can bite hard enough to cause cuts. In addition, reviewer Pink Elle advises “More reputable members (of Spa Association Singapore) use filtration systems and ultraviolet light to kill bacteria in the water and also check that their customers are clear of wounds.”

I wonder what it would be like to do Thetahealing while in a tank filled with Garra Rufa. Would it help reach the state of theta. Healing is easily attained when the brainwave theta is utilized. Especially in the case of Thetahealing, wherein relaxation is important.
