Lookout, Thailand! Israel has just leapt ahead in the international competition to snag tourists seeking massages!
Israel's contribution to the world of massage tourism is a spa in northern Israel called "Ada Barak's Carnivorous Plant Farm."
Among the shadows of Israel's famous orange groves, Ada Barak has long opened her home to curious travelers to see her collection of carnivorous plants and other natural oddities. When snakes became part of the exhibition, she noticed the effect they had on visitors - and the snake massage was born. (Rats balanced on one's feet during the massage are apparently optional.)
