A BRAVE volunteer lets giant pythons slither over her bare skin, as she takes part in the latest spa craze - SNAKE massage. The reptile sessions are being offered by a massage parlour in the Indonesian capital Jakarta for just £30 a time.
Visitors are given a traditional rub down, before the masseuse lays several of the giant snakes all over their naked body.
|Therapy ... several snakes are laid on woman's back|
Managers at the Snake Spa claim the pythons' presence triggers an adrenaline rush that benefits the human metabolism.
|Mad as an adder ... weight and movement of the reptiles manipulates muscles and joints|
|Scared stiff ... spa staff say pythons' presence triggers adrenaline release|
Staff are kept on standby for safety purposes and the pythons are well-fed before each session - to make sure they're not tempted to tuck into tasty clients.
