If you have a wound, they will put a band-aid over it so the fishies can carry on with their skin-munching activities.
If you're ticklish, this may not be a great option for u. Can't tell the fishes to stop tickling you at the sensitive spots!
There are 3 Kenko outlets at Marina Square
After a long day walking around in the hot, humid climate of Singapore, two friends and I saw the sign for Kenko Fish Spa, located on the 2nd level of the Flyer ticket area, and, having never done this before, we checked it out. First you have your feet sprayed with sanitizer. Barefoot, we sat down side by side on the edge of one of two water filled pools in which small (about 2 inch) fish are swimming around. The little fish nibble off the dead skin on your feet and toes - it tickles a little, but does not hurt. After 15 minutes, we were switched to another water filled pool with larger fish (about 3") for another 15 minutes. We then took our soft, clean feet to the reflexology treatment. You can specify whether you like light, medium or heavy pressure during the foot massage which lasts for 15 minutes per foot. Warm oil is applies and the whole process is wonderfully relaxing and refreshing and you are ready to continue exploring Singapore.
While waiting for our plane to board at Changi airport, my husband & I found the Fish Spa. We originally were going to do a package deal of a 10 minute neck massage & fish spa, but they were unusually quiet that day & they talked us into upgrading to a longer massage for only a litlle more. I was so glad they did, as it was worth every cent! We ended up having a neck & back massage for 30 minutes, which left us very relaxed before our long flight home. Afterwards they washed our feet & we sat with our feet in the ponds with the fish. It is a very unusual feeling with the fish nibbling away. I thought I wouldn't enjoy it, as I have very ticklish feet, but I never once felt like removing them from the spa. While we were sitting there, they brought us a lovely herbal tea. A great experience overall.
I get the feeling this is a touristy thing to do, but that shouldn't stop anyone from trying it! I went to the one in Marina Square. There were three different sizes of fish in three different tanks, and everyone who entered at the same time (me and a couple) sat in there at the same time. They rinsed off our feet first and then we were free to move from tank to tank.As others mentioned, it's a bit strange at first but you get used to it. The smallest fish tickle, the middle ones are a bit nippy, and the largest ones feel like a buzz. There was a monster fish when I went (~7 inches) that was kind of disturbing. Helps to go in order from smallest to largest fish.

I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! Ok.. First the foot message are Great. But I love the Fish foot spa. When I first saw this my look was ( O.o ) ok interesting.. After reading this and learning about it (O.O) oh must try this because they don't have anything like this in the states. They are Garra Rufa fishes and the origin of the fish spa was from Kangal, Turkey. These fishes eat your dead skin and are able to ease the symptomsof those suffering from skin conditions. They are very popular in Asia by the Japanese and Koreans. By the fishes eating the dead skin they are able to lighten of minor scars. It's a micro massage sensation from these"little masseurs to promote blood circulation. Natural form of exfoliationof dead skin from our legs and feet for smoother skin. I'm going to find a way to get these fishes here so I can start one of my own.
