Ever since that run-in with Adam and Eve, snakes have gotten a bad rap in the Holy Land. But at Ada Barak's spa in northern Israel, slithering reptiles don't give people the creeps. They give deep-tissue massages. 

Barak figured out several years ago that heavy king and corn snakes produce a relaxing kneading sensation. For years, she's been entertaining guests at her farm where she cultivates rodent-eating carnivorous plants. Strangely, she found a sideline that's even more bizarre. 

"People either like it a lot or they hate it," she tells Time magazine. For $80, a tangle of creepy-crawlies can wriggle their way up your spine and across your face, and you can decide. Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

Would you get a snake massage?

Can't I just stick with a regular massage?

Sounds kind of weird but intresting. I doubt most can overcome their phobia of snakes or creepy crawly things. looks like it would be a poor business investment. I'd give it a try so onlg as they stay away from the shorts.

Maybe, but I definitely wouldn't pay $80 for it.

When I get $80 to blow I will =P

That sounds awsome.

I'm not afraid of snakes, but I feel like I'd still prefer a massage from a human :)

I'm not too fond of snakes, and I wouldn't waste $80 for that, so that would be a no.

a snake massage sounds ridiculous. What a racket.

That would be kind of cool actually. It does feel nice when snakes crawl around on my hands at work.

I'd rather get massaged by a lady's breasts. Much rather actually... I don't see how the snakes do much though, they look rather small and light.

If it can't understand "don't touch my feet that hard...thanks," it's not touching me.
