Old school comedian Ken Dodd was famous for his tickle stick but he is maybe not the first person you would think of if you needed a pedicure.
Instead, take up today’s Big Deal with Tickled Tootsies in Glasgow’s Southside where you can enjoy a fish pedicure and nail treatment without listening to any hoary one liners.
Pedicure and polish
Taking place in the tranquil spa-environment of Tickled Tootsies, today’s Big Deal is for a 20 minute fish pedicure and an OPI file and polish for either your hands or feet.
Alternatively, there is the option to have a 20 minute fish pedicure followed by an application of Gellux Polish for your hands or feet.
Gellux is a gel polish (a cross between normal nail polish and gel nails), which means that you can brush it on like polish, but it lasts like a gel. It won’t chip or fade and will look great for up to two weeks.
Both deals include a glass of fizz for you to sip while the fish get to work.
Fish pedicure spa
An independent fish pedicure spa in the Southside of Glasgow, Tickled Tootsies offers a private, relaxing spa environment.
Unlike fish spas in shopping centres, it provides a calm space in which to be pampered without crowds of people staring at you.
Just a five minute walk from Hampden Park and the Victoria Infirmary, Tickled Tootsies uses tanks of little Garra Rufa or doctor fish to gently exfoliate their clients’ feet.
The fish have no teeth and, as they vacuum the hard and dead skin from your feet, it is a little like being gently tickled.
It is not unusual to hear clients laughing and giggling as they lower their feet into the tanks and the fish get to work.
Health and hygiene
Health and hygiene are paramount at Tickled Tootsies so the water in the fish tanks passes through a UV sterilisation and filtration system before reaching the treatment pools. This process happens at least eight times per hour.
By the end of your twenty minute Big Deal session, your feet will feel smooth, soft, clean and fresh.
The last time we ran a Big Deal with Tickled Tootsies, it was very popular. This is what recent users of the 5pm health & beauty site had to say of their experiences at the salon:
‘Fish. Fab experience, well worth a go!’
‘Fantastic Little Find. This is a great little place just round the corner from work. Fantastic value and the quality of the nails are second to none. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.’
