Hold the Dead Sea mud mask, the latest beauty treatment from Israel is a massage with live snakes. The snakes exfoliate the skin with their scales as they slither over the bodies of the strange people that pay $70 for the pleasure. In the ultimate oxymoron, the snake massage is billed as "relaxing" .

The inventor of the treatment, Ada Barak, appeared on the Tyra Banks show. A chaotic mass of writhing serpents certainly didn't chill Ms Banks out. A hilarious clip from her show is here.
