AquaArt, a Qatar-based distributor of top aquarium brands and exotic aquatic fish and plants, will showcase the health benefits of ‘Garra Rufa’ - more popularly known as ‘doctor fish’ - at the upcoming ‘Aquariya Expo 2009’, the premier ornamental aquatic event and the largest consumer event for the marine aquarium industry in the Middle East. AquArt aims at introducing alternative health and beauty treatments, using this unique aquatic species, to spas and hotels in the UAE. In addition to ‘doctor fish’, AquaArt will also exhibit a wide range of unique aquarium products and design services during the event’s three-day run, from March 4 to 6, 2009 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dubai.
Native to the hot springs of Turkey, ‘doctor fish’ has been known to help alleviate a medical condition called ‘Psoriasis’, by encouraging them to feed on the psoriatic skin of people afflicted, making it a popular attraction among spas, manicure and pedicure centres, and health and beauty salons in Asia and the US.
