Just as the world keeps changing, the spa trade has also evolved from a bare hand massage into a Reptilia massage therapy.
An Egyptian spa deploys live snakes to slither on the backs and faces of customers looking for pain relief.
Masseurs use pythons and 28 other types of non-venomous snakes for customers who sign up for a session. The spa owner and customers say the strange sensation of snakes on the skin gives them a feeling of total relaxation.
The spa charges around 100 Egyptian Pound(about $6) for 20-30 minutes session.
The spa owner, Safwat Sedki said “The use of snakes is a type of massage and it has two aims, physical and emotional. The physical aim is to improve blood circulation and mental stimulation.
” The emotional aim is that it releases endorphins that help with the happy hormone which helps people regain confidence and strengthen the immune system”
