Great balls of fire!!!
That was only one pun of literally a million available on the heels of this story!
A spa in China's Fujian province is doing things that no where else has done before, and we're not sure why anywhere else would actually want to.
"A rope made from various herbs is placed on the patient's body and covered with plastic wrap. Then, two wet towels are placed over the wrap and the herbal coil. Alcohol is poured on the towels and then set ablaze."
The crotch region isn't the only area where the fire therapy is used — the back, shoulders, etc. can also be effective starting points, but the crotch region is the part that scares us the most!
At least they have a lot of water in a bucket nearby in case the flames get out of control!
The previous sentence most definitely just gave us the shudders!
We would think twice about this if someone offered to pay us to do this - let alone paying to do this ourselves!
