An Israeli salon that offers snake massage for PS40!October 22nd, 2008 - 5:04 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 22 (ANI): A salon in Israel is offering customers a massage with six non-venomous snakes, for just 40 pounds.
Ada Barak’’s snake spa, in Talmei Elazar, northern Israel is offering the treatment that consists of snakes massaging the client’’s aching muscles and joints.
The health and beauty spa uses California and Florida king snakes, corn snakes and milk snakes for the massages.
According to Barak, physical contact with the reptiles can be a relaxing experience.
“Some people said that holding the snakes made them feel better, relaxed. One old lady said it was soothing, like a cold compress,” the Telegraph quoted her, as saying.
The size of the snakes depends on the type of massage - the larger ones are said to alleviate deeper muscle tensions and the smaller ones create a ”fluttering” effect. (ANI)
