The most exotic spa treatments
We present you a list of the strangest spa treatments you have ever heard about. And he is not for disgust sovsm. But why not go to look a couple of years younger:
1. Massage cacti
You probably think that this does not happen? However, in Mexico it is believed that cactus massage moisturizes the skin and helps rid the body of toxins. The Mexican resort of Punta Mita offers a wonderful massage with warm meringue of cactus and tuna or with cactus flowers and tequila.
Cactus needles are naturally removed, so a massage can be much more pleasant than you think. There are many varieties of such a massage, from hakali massage using a warm mixture of cacti to more standard procedures with tequila and sage oil.
Also, this resort offers treatments based on local materials: volcanic ash, chocolate, vanilla and honey.
2. Beer massage
Czech beer baths are a kind of interpretation of milk baths, which have become so popular thanks to Cleopatra.If milk seems too banal and boring to you, maybe a beer bath is exactly what you need.
The Czech family brewery "Chodovar" offers therapeutic beer baths. An amazing opportunity to plunge into beer! Since 2006, the brewery has been offering 20-minute baths in specially brewed beer, which stimulates the skin and internal organs.
During this bath you can also enjoy a mug of this drink. They say that water-based minerals that interact with beer are very useful for hair, skin, nails and blood circulation. This strange procedure is carried out by nurses who specialize in beer therapy, which is still damn good!
3. Moisturizing snail mucus
Sometimes the nastiest things turn out to be the most useful, as, for example, in the case of a moisturizing cream made from snail mucus.
You probably had to see the trail left by the snail. So, believe it or not, this unpleasant substance can be used to moisturize the body.
Chilean snail farmers in Chile noticed that the cuts healed much faster and the skin on their hands became more tender after they had fidgeted with snails for several days in a row.
But you do not have to immerse your hands in a container with snails, because the cream on the basis of snail secretion is sold for only $ 28.99 for a small jar. Moreover, snail mucus is a renewable natural resource, and not a single snail has yet been damaged during cultivation. It sounds just perfect.
4. Leech therapy
Blood-sucking parasites, leeches, have long been known. There are more than six hundred species of leeches, but only fifteen of them are used for medical purposes.
And thanks to the actress Demi Moore, leeches began to use a completely new way. Demi swears he uses them as an alternative cosmetic procedure.
Leech therapy helps rid the body of toxins. Once the ancient Egyptians considered leeching to be a cure.
Today, leeches are also used in reconstructive surgery for more rapid tissue engraftment. At first the leeches crawl on you, and then they stick and start to swell, being filled with your blood. Such therapy is not cheap, the New York Health Center holds a session for $ 600.
5. Thai face massage with blows.
A masseuse from Bangkok offers this procedure in her salon in San Francisco.The massage consists of tingling, rubbing and light slaps, it is believed that it restores the skin of the face. This type of massage smoothes wrinkles and reduces pores on the face.
The price for it is $ 350 for 15 minutes. If you find yourself having masochistic inclinations, this procedure is definitely for you!
6. Pedicure fish
Turkish salons were the first to start using miniature fish to remove dead skin. The practice, also known as “doctor fish,” has become very common in recent times.
Many consider this procedure to be soothing, although at first it may be a little ticklish. Tiny fish have no teeth, they just pinch off dead skin, they can't bite you, so don't worry, it will hurt. The Ivonne Spa Center (Alexandria, Virginia, USA) offers this procedure for $ 65 per 25 minutes.
7. Placenta for face
It seems that this practice came to us from Singapore. There she was engaged in a company that provides treatment of the face with a human placenta. It’s hard to say how they managed to get it, maybe we shouldn’t know about it.
There are plenty of placenta-containing products: soaps, tonics, and even face masks. These products are said to stimulate brain activity and cleanse the skin.To try this procedure, you can visit, for example, the skin center in Beverly Hills, which offers procedures based on the placenta, obtained, according to their assurances, from Russian maternity wards.
8. Hair treatment with bull sperm
Yes, you all understood correctly: treating hair with bull sperm. It sounds a bit strange, but people really smear their hair with it so that it is soft and shiny.
California's Santa Monica Salon specializes in completely natural hair masks and offers its clients a procedure using bull sperm.
Do not worry, the sperm is really taken from the bulls, and not from men, thank God. It is believed that such masks strengthen the hair roots and promote their growth. This is a bold procedure for those who are ready for much. Maybe it's better to take their word for it?
9. Facial care with bird droppings
Sometimes bird droppings are really used for very unusual purposes. Japanese geisha once applied white toxic cosmetics to their face. Then they began to use the mask with droppings of the nightingale to protect the skin from damage.
Bird droppings contain enzymes that help cleanse the skin of dead cells. It also contains guanine, which gives the face freshness and natural color.I must say that before applying for cosmetic purposes, the litter is necessarily treated with ultraviolet light. However, even after this, not everyone will dare to try such a procedure.
Proponents of this strange therapy claim that urine, if properly applied, can cure skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, and even acne. If you want to try this so-called “treatment” on yourself, try collecting your urine. It is better to do this in the morning, since it is at this time that it has the strongest properties.
