By 2020, more doctor fish spas started in China, Hainan, Belgium, South Korea, Netherlands, Hungary and Singapore. India, Thailand, Slovakia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Philippines are other countries which came up with this concept. Romania and Bucharest also emerged with this technique of spa treatment.
There are several women in my personal life that refuse to leave their homes sans makeup. If they are not made-up and I ask them to go to the gas station up the street with me, I have to wait for them to paint their masks on. Just as we walk around wearing our emotional masks with smiles on our faces like everything is hunky-dory, I believe that makeup can also act as a mask. It makes us look “better” than we really are – we can hide the bags under our eyes that give away how tired we are and fill in the frown lines that have formed over the years from stress.
