Punta Cana Ocean Spa and Doctor Fish

Punta Cana Ocean Spa & Doctor Fish

Come and join us on the Punta Cana Ocean Spa & Doctor Fish excursion, a unique spa and wellness experience in the Dominican Republic.

The Doctor Fish (Garra Rufa) is also known as the Pedicure Fish. This small fish is popular and famous for its ability to graze on dead skin cells from humans. Therefore, many clinics use them to treat psoriasis and other human skin problems. When you visit Doctor Fish, you will sit on a platform and dip your feet into a tank with water where the fish are swimming around. The small fish will soon start to swarm around your feet and graze on the dead skin. But do not worry, it does not hurt! You will feel a slight tingling and tickling sensation as the fish work their way around your feet.

Enjoy all of the other spa and wellness activities as the spa catamaran sails gently along the coast. The group Pilates/Yoga session will boost your energy levels. Our instructor will conduct the session on a beginner level and guide you through the movements.

Afterward, you have earned some meditation time on a floating mattress. Gently drift on the ocean and let the soothing sounds and rocking motion provide you peace of mind and total relaxation.

Back on the catamaran, our massage therapists are ready to take care of you! The highlight of the excursion is our two full-body two massages. One is a more traditional full-body massage with a masseuse and the other is a deeper massage performed on an electronic massage bed. Bother of these incredible massages will help your body release tension, stress, and muscular pains.

Finally, prepare yourself for our electronic ionization machines that will assist in removing and eliminating all the toxins in your body.
