Weird Spa Treatments

With spa treatments becoming more popular, the search to find new treatments to offer either inspired by the past or by modern research is on the rise. When a spa finds a new treatment they are often pioneers and the only ones to offer a unique service. Sometimes, more than often, being original can also mean being weird. I now present to you the strangest of the strange.

Spermine Facials: If you are good at breaking down words then you probably noticed the sperm in spermine. You guessed right, your esthetician will be using human synthesized sperm to treat your face. There’s a lot of jokes to made here but I will leave that up to you. This substance has anti-oxidant properties that can smooth the skin and diminish wrinkles. Once the product is layered on the skin, ultrasound and infrared light will be used to allow the product to penetrate and work out fine lines.

fish reflexology

Fish Reflexology:This treatment, mostly popular in Asia, uses Turkish spa  fish to give the treatment. The clients puts their feet in a pool of water while the fish work away at nibbling dead skin. After about 1o minutes the client moves on to another pool with larger aggressive African fish. In this case aggressive simply means that it tickles more while they swim around your feet. Once these steps are done, a softer skin is revealed and it’s time to complete with a reflexology session. This treatment can be very beneficial for helping people with psoriasis while the extremely ticklish may find it hard to relax.

Geisha Bird Poop Masks: This facial was commonly used in Japan by the Geishas to keep their skin clear. The main ingredient is droppings from the nightingale bird which is known to have powerful cleansing properties. Today in spas, the aesthetician will apply an odorless layer of the mask on the face so that client can enjoy the calming effects. They may also choose to enhance the treatment with a rice rub for an exfoliating effect.

Snake Massage:No need for a massage therapist here, the snakes get to work on your body. The client lays on the table while a variety of these reptiles slither all over the body. This sensation has been noted to be very relaxing for many but I’m not sure I could sit still and let go. The only thing that could comfort me is that none of the snakes are venomous.

If you are interested in really alternative treatment and trying new experiences then I hope this list has inspired you.

  1. As weird as those treatments may sound ,there is so much in this world of ours that still need to be discovered that I know these people are not any weirder than the scientist who made medicine with a horse’s urine. Hell , if sperms are good for wrinkles, bring along the treatment, ill use it. Thank you for the information. I was altogether amused and illuminated…and ready to try it.
