Pythons used to give massages at Philippines zoo

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED May 26, 2014

A new trend in massage techniques has made its way into a zoo.

At the Cebu City Zoo in the Philippines, the zoo's Burmese pythons give visitors a 15-minute massage by slithering on their bodies.

Participants lie on a bamboo bed near the zoo's entrance, and then zoo workers put four snakes on top of them, one at a time.

The snakes' kneading and trembling sensations on the skin are reportedly calming and therapeutic.

In case you're wondering, they feed these snakes beforehand.
