A hair salon in Dresden, Germany is offering what many would instinctively say no to—a neck massage by a 161-cm python.
Falk Döhler, the Haar Mode Team salon’s owner, says he offers the unusual service twice a week at a cost of 35 Euros (Ksh.3,800) per 30 minutes.
He adds that the python, named Monty, is 90 percent pure muscle and gently wraps itself around a client’s neck while contracting and relaxing its muscles. The experience, Falk says, is relaxing.
Falk said he got the idea from a South African salon when he visited the country recently. While many might be uncomfortable at the thought of a snake around their neck, he says the service is proving popular among his clients.
A TV reporters tried out the massage in camera and said it was “relaxing.” She also stayed on for a hair cut afterwards.
