Massages: Relaxing.  Snakes: Kind of Terrifying.  Combining the two?  Terrifyinging Relaxing?

That's pretty much the goal at Wholeness Center in Valley Cottage, New York.  They lay you down on a table and then plop a gigantic boa directly on your face. Serpentessa has been administering snake massages for 15 years, and claims they contain a ton of health benefits including "toning and stimulating the vagus nerve," which releases endorphins and oxytocin, which are "feel-good" hormones.

We bet some people would feel really good if those snakes just kept away, however! 

So the snakes seemed pretty chill.  Would you try it?
