Ada Barak offers snake massages at her snake spa in Talmei Elazar, in northern Israel. The treatment, which costs about $70, consists of six snakes massaging the client’s aching muscles and joints. Big snakes are used to alleviate deep muscle tensions and small ones are used for light massages. All the snakes used for the treatment are non-venomous.
Barak claims she discovered that snakes are therapeutic after letting people hold them. She said: “Some people said that holding the snakes made them feel better, relaxed”.
Would you try a snake massage? Personally, no way! I’m scared of snakes and I could never relax knowing they are slithering on my back. Just looking at the picture makes me uncomfortable!
