Snake Massages Grow In Popularity For Relaxation
Looking for a new kind of therapy and don't mind if your masseuse slithers over your body? Maybe it's time you visited a snake priestess.
Apparently snake massages help relieve stress and can loosen up your tight muscles. Serpentessa has been working with boa constrictors for 25 years. "[The snakes] tone and stimulate the vagus nerve in our body that releases endorphins and oxytocin — the feel good hormones," she told WLNY.
Serpentessa says that people usually reach out to her for healing and empowerment. Some people even schedule massages to help overcome their fear of snakes.
For about $300, you can stop by Dreaming Goddess in Poughkeepsie, New York and get a snake massage of your own.
