Fancy soaking in some red wine or noodle broth? Don't mind having your face smeared with a paste made out of bird poop? Want to experience snakes slithering over your bare back? Not a problem, if you're up for a challenging adventure, following are 5 bizarre beauty treatments you need to try out, that will make your flesh crawl.

Snake Massage Therapy

snake-spa Do you call yourself a fearless swashbuckler who's always up for an adventure? If yes, unleash the daredevil in you and go get yourself an ultimate adrenaline rush by indulging in an insane spa therapy – snake massage therapy! Head to Jakarta, Indonesia, for a bizarre spa treatment that involves a variety of snakes slithering all over your bare torso. Non-venomous snakes such as the California and Florida king snakes, corn snakes, pythons, and milk snakes coil around your body to relieve you from tension, stress, and muscle pain. Snakes of different size and weight create unique pressure which relieves the stressed muscles of the client, and normally, there are masseurs around who keep an eye on the snake's behavior and facilitate the therapy.

Coffee, tea, or ramen noodles?

coffee-spa So what do you prefer? Coffee, green tea, or some wine? Or, how about some ramen noodles instead? No, we aren’t talking about breakfast or your tea-time snack. You need to decide which one of these you fancy bathing in! Yes, that’s right; if you think deciding what beverage to drink was hard enough, try making up your mind which one you'd like to bathe in. Yunessun resort in Hakone, Japan, is an extraordinary spa and amusement park which allows its visitors to pick a pool to relax in, from pools of green tea, sake, red wine, coffee, and ramen noodles. As some of us already know, wine and coffee are known to be good for the skin, while green tea is great for the immune system and helps in flushing out harmful toxins from the body. As for ramen noodles, apparently the ingredients in noodle broth such as pepper collagen help in enhancing the body's metabolism and also cleanses the skin!

The Geisha Facial

facial-spa Want to have skin that is smooth, glowing, and blemish-free? Sure, how about smearing your face with some bird poop? Yes, as outrageous as it may sound, the Geisha facial which is popularly known as the "bird poop" facial, is a treatment that is supposedly known to be one of the ancient secrets behind the beautiful Japanese Geishas. The treatment includes a steam treatment, aroma therapy, and smearing the face with a paste made out of powdered and sterilized nightingale feces. The treatment allegedly gives the complexion a boost and helps in exfoliating and brightening the skin. It seems that nightingale poop consists of enzymes and guanine that help rejuvenate the skin.

Beer Spa

beer-spa If you thought red wine, coffee, green tea, and sake were not interesting enough, how about soaking up beer instead? No, once again, you don't have to drink it - you've got to bathe in it! A beer connoisseur's dream come true, head to the Chodovar beer spa in the west of Czech Republic to lose yourself in a heavenly beer spa. A place where you can let go of stresses and tension, the spa is known for its "curative" beer baths. Taking a dip in the beer bath apparently improves hair and complexion, relieves stressed-out muscles, improves the body's immune system, and warms up the joints – how cool is that! Well, this certainly calls for a huge round of "cheers"!

Urine Spa

urine-spa Did you ever, even in the wildest of your thoughts, imagine that urine could be used a healing ingredient? Well, apparently it can be! Known as urotherapy, urine therapy basically involves using your own urine to treat and heal your skin. It seems urine contains 95% of water, 2.5% urea, and the rest is a mix of salts, minerals, hormones, and enzymes, that are rich in nutrients. The therapy involves applying urine onto the skin with a damn cloth as a beauty treatment, which can help you get rid of eczema, acne, and psoriasis. For better results, use morning urine, since hormones apparently build up over the night!

Urine contain bacteria too, how can it be used for healing? And snake massage? The thought itself is hair raising for many.
