Exfoliating eel baths, $1K-$1.5K If you're having a difficult time choosing between a fish pedicure and a snake massage, China offers a happy medium with full-body eel baths. Instead of getting your body exfoliated with sugary scrubs, clients are submerged into a tank full of pencil-length eels. Their job: to nibble away dead skin cells to leave the bather with smoother, softer and more radiant skin.
One major downfall to this treatment: You can't control where the eels decide to wander. One man in China bathed with the mini exfoliators, only to have an eel settle in his kidney (by way of his genitals), leading to severe pain and a three-hour operation. He's fine now, though no word on if his skin is any smoother.
