Snake Massage

An Israeli health and beauty spa is offering a new service for its customers : A Snake Massage, located in Northern Israel. The treatment consists of six non-venomous snakes, massaging the client’s aching muscles and joints for about $70. 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.

  1. I don’t think I’d get much from this. I want a nice deep massage that snakes wouldn’t give. I do see how it could be soothing, though… gentle touching usually is, you know?

    A massage sounds good right now too. :)

  4. Hi Dunn ;)

    This is a really interesting subject – I have Arthritis and at the same time used to keep Royal Pythons.

    I used to let the wrap themselves round my knees, and arm joints.

    As they are made-up of many individual muscles and as they grip tight, but not too tight, they can give you one of the best massages ever!

    I have told friends about this and they thought I was weird, but here is the proof!

    Thanks for this!

    Andy :)


  5. I can’t even imagine how that’d feel. I think it’d totally creep me out. It’d be like fear factor!


  6. Oh no, this is not for me! YIKES! :(

    Cya, Andy

  13. A `snake massage’? Now that sounds like a hard thing to sell! I bet the people who do it feel great afterwards though, if only from the adrenalin!


  14. Ohhhh, no thanks!


  15. Isn’t all that crawling more ticklish rather than soothing?
