There are dozen of Spas operating in Russia’s Caucasus Mountain region due to the mineral springs in the area.
As with many fancy spas these days it seems that colonic treatments are a specialty.
In June, the Mashuk-Akva Term Spa in Zheleznovodsk unveiled a large monument to the enema.
It’s an 800 pound brass syringe bulb held aloft by three angels. Sounds like quite a strange tribute if you ask me! The monument was apparently inspired by Botticelli.
One banner near the monument says “lets Beat Constipation”.
