A salon located in Talmei Elazar, northern Israel, is offering snake massages to get rid of aching muscles and joints. The massage service costs just 40 pounds. Ada Barak's snake spa uses non-venomous California and Florida king snakes, corn snakes and milk snakes for the massage services.
Barak says that holding 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," British paper The Telegraph quoted her as saying.
