Adeje Ayuntamiento has declared the municipality’s feet nibbling outlets a health risk. In a press release today, the concejal de Turismo de Adeje, Miguel Ángel Santos, said that the centres lacked regulation and specific rules and therefore should not be allowed as a public activity.
Sr Santos said that many of these types of premises had opened in the last year in the Costa Adeje’s tourist areas, as well as in Playa de las Américas, and that the Public Health Board had indicated that if the activity was offered as a therapy, it had to submit to regulations in place to control health service outlets.
At present, he continued, feet nibbling centres do not have the appropriate authorizations, and must undergo checks and controls to ensure they do not pose a health risk for users, in particular in their capacity to transmit skin diseases and infections from wounds. PV
