Philippines Zoo offering 'snake massages'

18 posts in this topic

If you've ever wanted a big pile of snakes heaped on top of you then Cebu City Zoo has just the thing.

The bizarre massage service is provided by four giant pythons weighing a total of 550lbs that are unceremoniously draped on top of the recipient. The writhing weight of the massive reptiles is believed to offer therapeutic benefits to those who are brave enough to try it.

I like the way they say they feed the snakes first just to make sure :D That inspires a lot of confidence (not), anyway you won't catch me doing this, no way!

Might one assume that this is followed by cognitive behavioral therapy for the treatment of the resulting PTSD.

It's probably done for the drama. You can get a perfectly good snake massage from smaller snakes.

The problem's going to be to keep them in one place on your body.

(yes, I like snakes.)

It just looked like a heavy weight on her body. Not enough writhing. The "masseuse" needs more training.

Do snakes "lie low" or sleep after eating? They feed them first.

I have zero confidence in that guy being able to pry that huge thing off me if it didn't like my perfume.

Poor snake. The woman is free to leave.

Amazing creatures, but I like them better when they're not piled up on my back.

i misread the title, and assumed that it was the snakes themselves who were receiving massages. alas, it was not to be.

Awww I thought they were going to give massages to the snakes. They probably deserve it more! And um... how is that beneficial? They don't move much, nor do they know 'where' to apply pressure. Its just a heavy thing sitting on you.
