We recently asked celebrities to tell us the weirdest spa treatments they'd experienced. I was impressed by their yogurt body wraps, live fish pedicures, and bamboo massages. But for the beauty editors at Allure, that's just another Tuesday. Here, the absolute strangest stuff we've done behind closed spa doors.

"The weirdest spa treatment I've had-and I've had many-was at an old-school place in L.A., in the valley, that claimed to break up fat and cellulite. There were army cots lined up in a big room. As you lay on a cot, the technician took wet knotted towels and thwacked them against your thighs and butt. Then she massaged the area using Crisco from a can. Then she applied electrodes to give the muscles little shocks, turning up the dials until we tasted metal. It was something out of Twin Peaks. And, guess what? My cellulite was unchanged." -Linda Wells, editor in chief

"I once got a tuning-fork facial, where they hit the forks and then placed them on my forehead, nose, and face to help the penetration of whatever creams they had just applied. I felt the vibrations in my teeth for hours after the facial was over." -Patricia Tortolani, beauty director

"On my honeymoon in Italy, my husband and I visited a wine-themed spa in the Piedmont. The first service was a bath. The two of us had to strip down and climb into a wine-barrel-shaped tub that must have been designed for 5'2" Italians, not a couple of hulking Americans. I think we were supposed to be submerged up to our shoulders, but we were actually exposed from the waist up. Then two young aestheticians came in and gave us very greasy head massages while we tried not to knock knees." -Jenny Bailly, deputy beauty director

"I had a two-hour facial from Isabelle Bellis, and she actually massaged the inside of my mouth. She put on latex gloves and massaged my 'tense' inner cheek and lip muscles, which is something I have never experienced before or again." -Meirav Devash, contributing editor

"I was at the Dead Sea, and the thing to do was get covered in clay. The problem was washing it off. You're supposed to go dunk yourself in the Dead Sea, but it's almost impossible to submerge yourself. It's so salty, you kind of float like you're in a chair. I was picking clay out of my hair all night." - Danielle Pergament, contributing editor

"I had a hot-stone massage on my face with Ling Chan in the East Village. I had no clue what to expect, but it was super amazing, especially along my jawline (which I clench), temples, and all around my eyes." -Elizabeth Siegel, senior beauty editor

"After roasting in a sauna at a spa in Istanbul, an attendant led me to the cool-down area. It was a cabin full of snow-with snow actually falling from the ceiling. I felt like I had fallen down the rabbit hole." -Alexandra Owens, assistant editor
