Fish pedicures are old news. You can get them as easily as a can of coke now, even fitting one in while buying a pair of shoes in your local shopping centre. The intrigue and excitement of a bizarre treatment no longer pulls in the punters – it’s about the experience that goes with it. I’ve had a fair few fish pedicures myself now, enjoying the tickling sensation and baby smooth tootsies I’m left with, but a visit to Anesis spa in Clapham left me feeling like I’d experienced something unique. The spa is situated right on Clapham Common between cake shops and fancy bars, standing out with it’s glass frontage and chic design. This is no ordinary fish spa, but a fish spa which reminds you of being in Marbella with it’s soft dance tunes, bright lights and subtle luxury.
Anesis is a franchise which has reached far afield, with spas in Ibiza, Marbella, Ireland and now in Harvey Nichols. The experience you get is different from anything else, not only because of the top notch service and attention to detail, but because of the extensive treatments that are on offer to complement the fish pedicure. So many times I’ve come away following fishies eating my feet only to wish they could paint them with little nail polishes too – Anesis offer a unique service which includes a post-treatment file and paint, meaning your feet not only feel fabulous, but look fabulous too. You can also pop in for an appointment with HD Brows, book in to have your lashes dyed or extended, or even relax with a full body massage.
The decor makes you feel at ease and that the experience is a totally enjoyable one – something that I’ve struggled with in the past in dingy or uber public spas. The bright lights and soft tunes, as well as the open spaces and clear detail about what the fish are actually going to be doing, make this a spa worth travelling across London for. I’ve never experienced a spa which offers so many fab services under one roof! With new franchises opening all the time, I would totally recommend you look out for an Anesis spa near you.
