Those seeking a different way to relax may find what they're looking for with a slithery new massage method.

A spa in Cairo is introducing a new snake massage. Live snakes wriggle on customers' backs as well as faces to relieve pain.

Oil is first rubbed on customers' backs. Then around 28 different kinds of nonvenomous snakes are placed on the client for around 30 minutes.

According to Reuters, the owner of the spa claims snake massages are a proven way to reduce pain in the muscles and joints, as well as improve blood circulation and release endorphins.
