The spa day. When you hear those words one tends to think of a relaxing time, being pampered. Many spa hotels offer treatments that are designed to stimulate your senses and relax your muscles. Sounds like paradise, doesn’t it?
Many meeting and event planners also include spa treatments as part of spouse tours and attractions offered to their meeting’s delegates and their spouses.
A Spa in Bali Offers a Very Unique Spa Treatment
Snakes! Yep, you read that correctly: snakes. As I’m writing this I can’t help but wonder who would get such a treatment. I’m thinking about all of the people that I know and I am pretty sure that none of them would undertake this procedure, no matter how soothing.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Apparently there are people that are flocking to the Bali Heritage Reflexology and Spa in Jakarta to get these unique treatments. The rationale behind the treatments is that by placing pythons directly on your body, your body’s natural reaction would be fear. It’s the adrenaline that is triggered by the fear that’s the key to the treatment with this procedure. With adrenaline having a roller coaster effect on your muscles you couldn’t help but feel relaxed afterwards. But I’m also told that many people need a traditional massage after receiving the Python treatment.
Oh and by the way they don’t use just one Python, they use three for the treatment.
Here’s a video (if you can watch it without squirming) which shows the treatment:
It’s safe to say that the Bali Heritage Reflexology and Spa in Jakarta has certainly drawn its fair share of attention (after all, this blog piece is about them). But I am left wondering just how many of you would opt to have the Python treatment as part of your spa day.
