Snake Massage Might Not Be the Perfect Valentine’s Gift
Massages always seem to be popular gifts for Valentine's Day. Everybody loves a massage. However, there is one massage therapy that certainly isn't for everyone. It's the snake massage at Ada Barak's Carnivorous Farm.
You'll find Ada's spa in the northern part of Israel. The big attraction is her collection of plants, which eat everything from insects and reptiles to small mammals. But for just $80 you can enjoy a wonderful snake massage. These king and corn snakes are apparently heavy enough to produce a kneading sensation and provide soothing deep tissue therapy.
Some of the regular customers at the spa claim the snake therapy helps to ease migraines and soothe sore muscles. And why wouldn't it? Having a tangle of creepy, slithering reptiles crawling over my back, neck, and face would quickly make me forget about any other sort of ailment I might be experiencing at the moment. If I can choose between snakes and sore muscles, I'll take the sore muscles. And for Valentine's Day let's just stick with a box of chocolates.
