An Israeli health and beauty spa is offering a new service for its customers – a snake massage. The treatment consists of six non-venomous snakes massaging the client’s aching muscles and joints for $70.
Located in northern Israel, Ada Barak’s spa uses California and Florida king snakes, corn snakes and milk snakes for the massage.
Barak believes that physical contact with the reptiles can be a soothing experience. She says that she was inspired by her belief that once people get over any initial misgivings, they find physical contact with the snakes to be soothing.
