Snake Massage Therapy

A spa treatment in Israel involves a writhing braid of live snakes. Meirav Stardinner receives a snake massage from Ada Barak at Barak’s snake spa in Talmei Elazar, Israel. Barack's income comes mostly from exhibiting her plants which eat everything from insects to small mammals. She discovered snakes' therapeutic value after letting people hold them. A plant farm in northern Israel offers the full-body snake massage for $70. Bigger snakes will knead the belly or back while smaller ones wiggle around your face.
