This bizarre massage method uses snakes to heal depression

A woman in Brazil has taken to using snakes in holistic therapy – and even says that the serpents can help to cure depression.



Sarah Zaad, 43, uses up to six pythons and boa constrictors to massage clients. She said: “I am known as the snake queen. I do this massage with snakes because it is a beneficial treatment to many people. People who have issues with touching and also other types of disorders, such as depression. And I have achieved amazing results with this type of treatment, reaching 100 per cent success in all cases I’ve had.”

Sarah was taught the unusual technique by a fellow gypsy in Buenos Aires when she was 20. She added that the method works because snakes have lots of muscles – so parts of the body you can’t feel during a normal massage are reached.

Sarah said that the snakes follow the rhythms of her dancing. Interestingly, Sarah’s main focus as a masseuse is to help women who have been physically abused.
