These photos were taken at a Russian spa. The water in each of the bathtubs is called naftusya and supposedly has healing powers. It tastes like shit, but people drink it fanatically.

These photos were taken at a Russian spa. The water in each of the bathtubs is called naftusya and supposedly has healing powers. It tastes like shit, but people drink it fanatically. The photo where the lady’s legs are getting covered in goo is an ozocerite treatment. That’s this petroleum-based, clay-like mineral that allegedly cures rheumatism and arthritis. Fifteen minutes a day like that is supposed to do wonders.
