A Slithering Spa

At Ada Barak's spa in northern Israel, slithering snakes don't give people the creeps. They give deep-tissue massages. For several years, Barak has been entertaining visitors to her carnivorous plant farm by passing around samples of the small reptiles her plants will consume. When her visitors claimed that holding the serpents was soothing, she got an idea, and thus, the Slithering Spa was born. Barak claims that the heavier king and corn snakes produce a kneading sensation as they move across your body. Want to get your own Snake Massage? Time magazine has more information.

Hmm...I wonder if size matters in this instance. Of course, if you get too big of a snake, the kneading sensation may very well be around your neck.

BTW, I offer a snake massage to any woman who kneads to be kneaded.

I'm with you Wayne, I'd go to see the carnivorous plants.

I may start a spa that offers cockroach massages! Uh, it's an art thing.

This actually makes Japanese massage robots appealing by comparison

Cockroaches are the only thing that will make me scream like a little girl. Then, I cannot rest until I know that little bastard is dead.

'Take off your clothes and let my snakes slither all over your naked body'

This just creeps me out on so many levels :gulp:

I question if she really got the idea just because some of her visitors said holding a snake was soothing ... I bet she really came up with the idea for another reason entirely :lol:
