OH MY GOOOOOD ….

Snake massage on menu in Israel

Sunday Jan 28 11:57 AEDT

Hold the Dead Sea salts and tea-tree oil. An Israeli health and beauty spa has introduced a new treatment to its menu – snake massage.

For 300 shekels ($A89.85), clients at Ada Barak’s spa in northern Israel can add a wild twist to their treatment by having six non-venomous but very lively serpents slither and hiss a path across their aching muscles and stiff joints.

“I’m actually afraid of snakes, but the therapeutic effects are really good,” customer Liz Cohen told Reuters Television as Barak let the snakes loose on her body.

Barak uses California and Florida king snakes, corn snakes and milk snakes in her treatments, which she said were inspired by her belief that once people get over any initial misgivings, they find physical contact with the creatures to be soothing.
