Tibiao Fish Spa- GenSan offers a special exfoliating experience
Something “fishy” is arriving at SM City General Santos and it will sure delight mall-goers who are on the lookout for an experience that will benefit their health and well-being but will be surprised at something very different from the usual.
Generals, get ready for the TIBIAO FISH SPA exfoliating experience!
Instead of the usual foot scrub by therapists, Tibia Fish spa offers their clients the experience of dipping their feet in pools of water to allow thousands of little fish kiss, tickle and nibble them.
This specially hybridized species of fish feed on the dead layers of skin cells leaving the feet smoother and softer, while at the same time stimulating pressure points to relax the body and help relieve stress.
While some people are skittish at the start, they soon find out that the ticklish sensation is a lot of fun and that is why the mall’s newest fish spa will soon always be filled with laughter and occasional shrieks from thrilled guests.
“Aside from the fish cleaning your skin, laughter itself is good for you. It relaxes the heart, boosts our immune system, and reduces the level of stress hormones. Plus, we all know it feels good to laugh especially in the company of our family and friends,” explains Flord Nicson Calawag, General Manager and Franchisor of Tibiao Fish Spa, the company behind this literally “fishy” business.
“The ticklish experience lasts for only a few minutes before the sensation of hundreds of fish nibbling on your feet like little THERApists will slip you into a deep sense of relaxation,” Calawag adds.
While fish spas are not entirely new especially in Malaysia and Thailand where they have become very popular as natural means of exfoliation and relaxation, Tibiao Fish Spa stands out because they use fish locally found in the town of Tibiao, Antique. Mr. Calawag calls it THERAfish due to its sandpaper-like teeth that may render therapeutic benefits.
“We proudly offer our services at a very affordable prices because we breed our own THERAfish back in Tibiao, Antique,” adds Nick Calawag, TFS Technical Manager.
“Aside from fish spa, we will cater to other services such as foot and full-body therapeutic integrative massage to give our guests a total relaxation and pampering experience,” comments Roberto E. Benedicto, Tibiao Fish Spa Franchisee for SM General Santos. Furthermore, he explains, “I am excited to be part of the first mall-based fish spa in Mindanao”.
Tibiao Fish Spa started its venture in Tibiao, Antique back in 2009 before opening a branch in SM City Pampanga in 2012 where it became a hit among locals and tourists alike. For sure, in no time at all, the same will happen when the people of GenSan and SoCCSkSarGen finds out about the existence of this unique spa.
