Spa Treatments With A Twist
The five treatments written about in the article are:
Getting a butt facial, indulging cactus massage, freezing you skin and getting your body's biochemistry tested are really taking spa treatments to the next level! I never would have imagined those services.
In this post, I would like to highlight #2 on the list.
The Yunessun Spa Resort in Japan sparked my interest the most. How fun and bizarre (in a good way)! Japanese creativity is top-notch.
Who doesn't want to bathe in red wine?
On their website it says, "Bathing in wine is a rejuvenation treatment for the body, and it has been said that the Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra loved to bath in wine."
GREEN TEA SPA
This bath contains green tea from the Tanzawa and Hakone mountains which contains Catechin, a powerful anti-oxidant fighting tumors as well as enhancing the immune system. It is also beneficial for your skin.
Totally down for this! I am sure other spas around the world offer this.
Yunessun describes the benefits as, "is an effective treatment from the recovery of fatigue, and also adds beauty to the skin. The aroma of the coffee will also perk up your senses."
I don't drink coffee but it would be cool to try.
Japanese Sake Spa
This spa is described as a "unique Japanese experience" which makes it sound a bit gimmicky. Nonetheless, sake is supposed to be good for your skin.
Sidenote: I wonder how much alcohol they put in the baths. Maybe you can get a little tipsy...!
Not only can you dip yourself in beverages, you can go au natural at their more private and secluded Mori NO YU resort zone. Guys and girls are separated.
You can also bring your children along, it is a family-friendly resort and amusement park. They will love their heated water slides and jungle gym attraction.
I want to go! They have over 25 water attractions. In addition to what I already mentioned, I would love to try their Finnish bath, Turkish hammam as well as the Hakone Geyser. I'm assuming the Hakone Geyser is more natural.
It costs 2,800 yen (=$27 USD and change) for adult admission and 1,500 yen (approx. $14.70 USD) for children.
Going here would be a perfect day-trip to add on to your Japanese Zen Getaway! The spa resort is located in the area of Hakone where they are beautiful mountains, hot springs and picturesque views of Mt. Fuji from away.
