MASSAGE PLEASURE -- OR PAIN? LARGE PAINTBRUSHES ON BREASTS, CHINESE SEEDS, HOT OIL AND WAX ARE ALL THE RAGE AT NATION'S TOP SPAS

 NEW YORK, June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Swirling large paintbrushes on one's breasts, a Chinese seed pressed into the ear, or even having one's hands and feet immersed in melted wax might sound uncomfortable, but women searching for a totally different massage are braving this and more -- and are finding these new spa techniques surprisingly pleasurable.
 The July issue of SELF magazine (newsstand date 6/29) reports that the new breed of "weird," but exotic, spa massages are all the rage. Highlighting some of the top spas in Florida, New York, Arizona and Hawaii, SELF recommends trying the bust massage, which uses large paintbrushes to swirl moisture cream on breasts, before wrapping them in toner-soaked tissues and plastic; the tropical island massage, in which a small, Chinese seed is pressed into the ear for relaxation, before a hula-dancing masseuse vigorously massages the back a la "rolling pin" style; the head and neck massage with hot oil drizzled onto the forehead; the coma, during which the hands and feet are immersed in melted wax, and then covered in heated mitts; and the ice massage treatment, which involves pressing chunks of ice into sore muscles for numbness.
 Like they say, "Don't knock it 'til you've tried it."
