The Derma Roller

The Derma Roller Designed to improve the appearance of your face. Don’t ask me how I know this, but I believe this implement is used by certain people to inflict pain on other parts of your body. Hmmm.

Fish Yes, fish. Not eating it, not taking fish oil capsules, but dipping your tootsies in a bowlfull of ‘Doctor fish’. These tiny creatures feed on dead flesh, and the treatment is said to help those who suffer from eczema and other skin diseases. Not for the ticklish or anyone who’s seen ‘Piranha’.

Nightingale Dropping Facials

Nightingale Dropping Facials Popular in Japan. Never mind ow, how about ewwww? The dropping may be sterilized, but why would anyone want to cover their face with bird doodoo?

Gold Leaf Wax

Now you can have your legs defuzzed with wax that includes 24-carat gold leaf, at 24-carat prices. Claims to ‘leave you with a gentle shimmer’. Not sure about leaving you pain-free though.


Snake Massage

Snake Massage Clearly not for the squeamish or phobic. The snakes are non-venomous, and presumably highly trained professionals.

Breast Milk Soap

Breast Milk Soap Yes, apparently someone makes soap from their own breast milk. Should you want to order …

But don't the fish have some sort of poison that can lead you to the hospital or have they already taken care of that problem?

I also have tried the doctor fish. It is really ticklish but those fish only eats dead skin cells in our body and I love to do it again.

I want to try the fish thing! Actually I saw it in a salon in my city. Must remember to book an appointment.

oh wow i've done the fish thing on my leg and feet before...at a hot spring..soo ticklish then it hurts after a while. but fun.
