For those who are bored with their routine run of the mill wax or facial at the spa there are some more unusual treatments available that may be worth a try. From snake massages to bathing in wine, the website Bing recently released a list of some of the most “extreme spa treatments” available around the world.
Perhaps the most goosebump inspiring treatment; a snake massage offered in an Israel spa where non-venomous snakes are placed on an individuals back in order to relieve tension. Though spa-goers say the treatment is relaxing, it may be hard for those who fear snakes to sit through.
One spa in Japan encourages guests to take a dip in one of their many “beverage pools”. The amusement park-like spa offers green tea, wine, and coffee baths for adults and a wide array of water slides and rides for kids.
You don’t have to travel to another country to partake in an unusual spa treatment. Chicago’s Galos Caves offers guests 45-minute relaxation sessions in their floor-to-ceiling black sea salt covered rooms. The salt is believed to help with many ailments including skin and sinus issues.
For the rough-heeled set, a spa in Turkey (as well as a few here in the U.S.) will smooth the driest feet with their fish pedicure. By soaking a guest’s foot in a vat of water and allowing small toothless fish to nibble off the dead skin, the treatment is said to leave feet softer and smoother every time.
