There are various body treatments offered at spas. Some of them are rather unusual. They are in fact strange. What is important though is that they actually work to achieve desired results.
One such treatment is the Petriolo candle massage which is offered at Petriolo Spa Resort. This massage brings every sense alive. It is done with unique cosmetic candles that are made out of vegetable oil butters, essential oils, Oriental fragrances as well as spices. The mix is a potent one that leaves the skin very well nourished and deeply hydrated. Drops of it are applied on the skin when warm which induces a feeling of deep relaxation. The scent of the mix is divine and when inhaled during the massage,it is utter bliss.

Another novel treatment that works very well is offered at Etruria Resort and Natural Spa in Montepulciano. The treatment is done with a scrub that contains Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a red wine that is produced in the town of Montepulciano in Italy. When added to a scrub, the effect is that skin is left silky smooth, baby soft and clear thanks to the grapes.
The red wine is combined with an exfoliating body scrub which is a practice known as vinotherapy. Apart from the wine, other components like grape skin and the seeds are also mixed into the body scrub. The vinotherapy trend has grown as the effect of grapes have been discovered. They are very rich in antioxidants which nourish the skin and fight the signs of aging like lines and wrinkles.
Another strange but very effective treatment is the stimulating and energizing spicy body treatment. This treatment is available at Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort and Spa in Castelvecchio Pascoli, Barga. The spice treatment is one of the treatments that is tailored for men. It is a body scrub that is mixed in with ginger, black pepper, lemongrass and argan oil. The scrub stimulates circulation and is very energizing. It is washed off with a ginger shower and finished with a relaxing ginger and honey back massage.
