In 2011 the Sudwala Caves became the first venue in Mpumalanga to offer a Garra Rufa Fish Spa. The spa is scenically situated out of doors, with a panoramic view of the valley below.
These tiny fish are known for their habit of gently nibbling away at and feasting on dead skin – and only dead skin. For centuries, people with psoriasis and other skin disorders have visited outdoor hot springs near Kangal, Turkey, where the Garra Rufa live and breed. Sudwala gets their fish from Singapore. Once they have consumed dead areas of the skin, healthy skin is free to re-grow.
As a bonus, in the process, acupuncture points on the soles of the feet are stimulated, and blood circulation improved. The spa invites visitors to spoil themselves in a foot spa with a difference, allowing these unique little fish to nibble gently at tired feet to revitalise them and leave them feeling just gorgeous, while the guest enjoys stunning views of the valley
The water in the Sudwala Spa fish baths is constantly filtered through bio-filters, and UHF rays are used to kill any bacteria in the water. Customers are also required to wash their feet in an antiseptic bath prior to dipping them into the fish bath.
I treated myself to a few hours at the spa recently, I go there as often as I can to revive my feet and to enjoy the tranquillity of the spa. Next time you visit the Lowveld, why not try something different?
I can ensure you, you will have an experience of a lifetime.
