I love a great massage and a fabulous pedicure. A great hairstylist is worth their weight in gold as far as I am concerned. Recently, I read an article about some of the following really super bizarre spa treaments :
- snakes that relieve tension (I don't think so) for about $70 one can have non venomous snakes slither across your back thus massaging it and relieving tension. Um...no thanks!
- take a bath in tea, coffee, red wine, sake, or ramen noodles. (Japan) Sake is supposed to be good for your skin...green tea boosts the immune system. I honestly don't know what to think about soaking in a vat of ramen noodles...ewww! The Czech Republic offers tubs of dark beer!
- the Hershey's Chocolate Spa (finally an idea I can wrap my brain around) perhaps a Whipped Cocoa Bath, Chocolate Bean Polish or a Chocolate Fondue Wrap
- 24-karat gold facial treatment (for the mere price of $250) said to date back to Cleopatra, said to accelerate cell renewal and reverse oxidation.
- The Geisha Facial - sterilized Nightingale excrement (contains important enzymes for your skin) at the mere cost of $180 you too can rub bird poo on your face!
- Viagra for your hair...yes you heard it here...it is actually bull sperm combined with Katera root??? Try it and let me know.
- Cactus massage - yes a cactus massage opposed to a stone massage or a snake massage...$245 smackers and you can have prick-free (oh don't go there) cactus pads blended and massaged into your skin.
- A butt facial (there has got to be a good joke in there somewhere) exfoliation and microcurrent (sounds electric) therapy to remove any bumps or lumps finishing with an organic spray tan. Yep, I need my butt spray tanned...solve all my problems.
- Caviar Firming facial...fish eggs for the face (guarooonteeed to transform your dull complexion to firm, radiant skin...how's that for a fish story)
- Get wrapped in wet hay...whilst lying on a water bed you will be wrapped in wet hay which has been harvested from the meadows of Alpe Di Siusi...the only plus side for me is that you have to go to Italy for the treatment...I guess hay from the meadows of Alpe Di Siusi harvested at only certain times is better than hay harvested any ole time in the good ole USA...not a go for allergy sufferers!
And last but not least...a friend tried this in Singapore...the photos gave me the willies:
- Garra Rufa fish (Doctor Fish) feet are placed into a small pool and filled with these little carp who eat the dead skin on your feet and legs...picture me shivering at the very thought!
So...my lovies...your assignment should you choose to accept it...try one of these fabulous treaments and report back to me!
