Health and beauty are back! And by that, we mean spas have reopened, and we can once again enjoy relaxing massages and skin-saving facials. There are, however, some other treatments that might spark interest – a little fat-freezing, sensory deprivation, or vitamin IV drip perhaps? But before you go ahead and book one for yourself, check out our picks of the best alternative health and beauty treatments that are available in Hong Kong right now.

RECOMMENDED: Hong Kong gyms have also reopened, so you have every excuse to shop for some new activewear before you head to the city's best fitness studios for a workout.

Promising dramatic results, EstheClinic's EstheCryo fat freezing treatment is a non-surgical procedure that aims to freeze away stubborn fat deposits in a matter of 60 minutes. Using cryolipolysis technology's unique suction method, which gradually draws up fatty tissues instead of doing it in one forceful go, results in a more comfortable experience and means multiple areas can be treated simultaneously. Don't forget, you'll need to fast at least two hours before and after the procedure. The clinic also has a 'buy one get one free' offer running right now.

Price: $5,800 for a 60-minute session; Packages are also available
