The world's most unusual spa treatments

There are people among us who will go to extreme lengths to get their skin looking younger or their face feeling softer, but the spa treatments we’re about to show you would make even the bravest spa-goer feel squeamish. Forget hot stones and sauna rooms, there are spas in the world that offer venomous snakes and even bird poo to those who are looking to iron out those wrinkles and return to their youthful looks. 

Enduring unbearable temperatures and painful facials will seem like a cake-walk after you’ve seen our list of the most unusual spa treatments. So join us as we take a look at the most outrageous and bizzare spa services in the world for those on holiday in Italy, Israel or Asia...

Wet hay wrap
Hay

Cling film body wraps are so last year, according to Hotel Heubad in northern Italy. Instead, this hotel and spa offers a unique treatment that involves covering the body in hot, moist hay, harvested from the meadows in Alpe di Siusi, and lying still until the hay has drawn out all the nasty toxins in your body.

Boozy beer bath
Leffe

Beer baths can be found in spas in the Czech Republic, Austria and Germany. Apparently, sitting in a barrel of Europe’s finest beer can enrich the skin, eliminate toxins and even exfoliate your body.

Serpent massage
Snake

If you thought we were kidding about the snakes, we weren’t. The small Israeli village of Talmei Elazar has used snakes to give people massages for many years!  

Taurus treatment
Bull

Probably the most bizarre treatment on our list is the bull sperm hair treatment at Hari’s salon in London. Labelled “Viagra for the hair” by the salon’s owner, this treatment revitalises the hair and brings dry, damaged locks back to life.

Nightingale facial
Bush Warbler

Last on our list is the bird-poo facial popular with celebrities such as Victoria Beckham. This Japanese face cream is made from the droppings of the Japanese bush warbler, which is found only in Asia.
