 Snakes Are The Ultimate Therapeutic Body Massagers!

For those seeking the ultimate in therapeutic body massages, a new form of massage has come up, which involves a nest of writhing snakes.

Ada Barak's Carnivorous Plant Farm, located on a moshav about an hour's drive north of Tel Aviv, provides the ophidian rubdown.

It all starts with a person lying down on a massage table set up under the shade of an umbrella, with a white baby's bath next to the table containing the snakes, which are writhing in anticipation.

The bath contains, among other snakes, a California king snake and an albino corn snake, both stretching to more than 1.5 metres in length.

Once the snakes are placed on the body, they start doing their thing, with the larger ones sliding confidently around the back, while the smaller ones wrapping themselves around the neck and poking their way into the ears and nostrils.

"It's a very sensual experience," theage.com.au quoted Barak, who is a 54-year-old biologist, as saying.

"Some have even described the massage as being something more than that," she added.
