So, here is the list of therapy and therapies that help you to get out of your daily stress and tiredness.
Fish therapy, also known as a fish pedicure, involves an individual placing their feet into a tub of water that contains small fish of the species Garra rufa. Sometimes these fish are called “doctor fish” due to their ability to eat the dead skin on the individual’s feet, revealing smoother, newer skin. The act of the fish eating away at the dead skin creates a tickling sensation on the feet. The pedicure is relatively expensive, as it can cost anywhere from Rs. 600 to Rs.1000, depending on the country for approximately 200 Garra rufain the tank. The duration of the fish pedicure is limited to anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes to ensure that bleeding does not occur.

Art therapy involves the use of creative techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, coloring, or sculpting to help people express themselves artistically and examine the psychological and emotional undertones in their art. Art therapy helps children, adolescents, and adults explore their emotions, improve self-esteem, manage addictions, relieve stress, improve symptoms of anxiety and depression, and cope with a physical illness or disability. Art therapists work with individuals, couples, and groups in a variety of settings, including private counseling, hospitals, wellness centers, correctional institutions, senior centers, and other community organizations. No artistic talent is necessary for art therapy to succeed, because the therapeutic process is not about the artistic value of the work, but rather about finding associations between the creative choices made and a client’s inner life.
