Is This For Real?

Getting A Snake Massage Is Good For You


Have you ever been massaged by a snake?

No, that’s not a metaphor. I mean a real live snake massage.

No Metaphor In Sight

There are some places, like Dresden, Germany, and the Philippines, where they offer massages with their snake. A real live snake massage.

Again, that’s really not a metaphor. We’re talking about a real live snake.

For example, The Haar Mode Team Salon lets their customers choose whether or not to get a neck massage from Monty after their haircut.

Monty is the salon’s python. He’s been there 13 years and made the place famous.

Since snakes are approximately 90% muscle, they make excellent massage therapists.

A Killer On Your Neck

Pythons kill their prey by wrapping themselves around it.

They squeeze hard, eventually suffocating their victims.

However, if it is any consolation, incidents of pythons killing human beings are extremely rare.

Now full grown pythons (6 feet +) have teeth, but the places which offer massages with pythons this large tape their mouths closed.

So, there is no chance of being bitten. It’s just the life crushing ability you have to worry about.

In fact, as you’ll see in the video below, the handlers wash and dry the snakes before draping them over your body.

This video, if nothing else, is interesting to watch and shows us another element of the beauty of nature while you dream of getting a snake massage.
