Likened to a “fish pedicure,” fish spa involves bathers dipping their feet into a pool filled with fish that nibble away dead skin to leave feet clean, soft and smooth. The flesh eating fish is safe for all ages since they only nibble the dead layer of the skin and leave healthy skin to grow. The most that one can feel is a irresistible tickling sensation when the fish comes in contact with the bather’s feet. It can take a short while to get used to but after the initial tickling sensation subsides, bathers can fully enjoy the relaxing effect of the fish therapy.

Aside from its relaxing and cosmetic effects, the fish spa also has its health benefits.The action of the fish stimulates acupuncture points on the feet thereby improving blood circulation and overall physical wellness.

The Tibiao Fish Spa has different types of fish pools to offer. The beginner pool is filled with small fish,  which gently nibble on the layers of dead skin cells. The fish spa’s more “demanding” clients can head over to  the extreme pool for the heavy duty work of removing calluses and thicker patches of skin. For those who really want to maximize the “fish-tastic” experience, Tibiao Fish Spa also offers a VIP service where bathers can comfortably sit on soft leather sofas in a private curtained area. Cap things off with a full body massage and reflexology therapy to truly give your body its much deserved pampering.

The Tibiao Fish Spa also offers a whole-body fish spa and a mobile fish spa service for clients who want to bring the fish spa to their special occasions or in the comfort of their own residences.

The Classic Fish Spa Area consists of a Beginner Pool and an Extreme Pool filled with varied sizes of fish

Fish Spas are widely popular in Asia, Europe and America because of its many health and cosmetic benefits. Most Fish Spas use a variety of fish called garra ruffa, also known as Doctor Fish or Nibble Fish. This kind of fish is expensive to acquire and maintain, which is why “fish therapy” is generally considered an expensive form of treatment. The Tibiao Fish Spa, however, is able to offer its services at very affordable rates because they use a local variety of fish sourced from the highlands of Antique. The price for a classic fish spa treatment at Tibiao Fish Spa is only P120 for the first 30 minutes.

The Tibiao Fish Spa originated in Tibiao town of Antique Province. The Tibiao branch, conveniently located along the National Highway, is known for offering the cheapest fish spa treatment in the world at only P20 for the entrance fee and an additional P2 per minute (P1 per minute for students!).
