A nail salon in Alexandria, Virginia, is employing some unusual helpers to deliver a pedicure like no other.Salon owner John Ho traveled all the way to China to learn the art of using the "Doctor Fish" to nibble the dead skin off his customers' feet.

He claims it's more sanitary than using a razor and gives smoother results.

"They love it. I have people coming back many, many times," he said.

"It's starting to feel like a massage more than a pedicure," said one customer.

Ho says the flesh-eating fish never get full, so they're always ready for another pedicure.
