10 Weird Spa Treatments

Cactus Massage

Mexico's spas combine familiar beauty treatments with indigenous rituals, using local materials like cactus, volcanic ash, chocolate, vanilla and honey. For example, the Four Seasons Resort in Punta Mita, Mexico, offers a tequila-and-sage oil massage, but if that sounds a little too rowdy for your taste, try the hakali massage instead. Hakali involves the application of a warm mixture of cactus. The treatment supposedly removes toxins and rehydrates the skin, leaving you feeling rejuvenated. It costs $180 for 50 minutes of treatment [source: Four Seasons Resort].
