#9 Covered with Snakes: Talmei Elazar, Israel
Just an hour north of Tel Aviv in Talmei Elazar, Israel, therapist Ada Barak offers a $70 spa treatment at her Carnivorous Plant Farm which uses six non-venomous California and Florida king snakes that slither up and down your back to help you relieve tension.
Ada Barak’s Carnivorous Plant Farm and Spa in Northern Israel sells a slithering, slinking massage featuring one of the planet’s most feared creatures. Travelers who’ve got the guts for it can experience a snake massage in which a half dozen of the things will crawl and writhe across one’s back. Why snakes? TIME.com reports that “Many of Barak’s regular clients claim that the snakes help ease migraines and soothe sore muscles.”
