EGYPTIAN MASSEURS USE LIVE SNAKES TO CUSTOMERS TO RELIEVE PAIN
In a small Cairo spa room, soothing tunes play as live snakes slither on the backs and faces of customers looking for pain relief.
The procedure begins with, masseurs first rub oil on clients’ backs and then use a combination of Pythons or around 28 different types of non-venomous snakes for those partaking in the adrenaline-fueled thirty-minute session.
Diaa Zein came across the new service while browsing through his social media and was instantly eager to try it.
According to the spa owner and customers the massage gave them a boost of self-confidence as well as a feeling of total relaxation due to the unusual sensation of snakes on the skin.
Snake massages are also proven to reduce muscle and joint pain while improving blood circulation and releasing endorphins, Owner Safwat Sedki said.
