Thai Face Slapping Massages Hits The States

The traditional yet rare Thai face-slapping massage has gone international thanks to a Thai beautician who has set up shop in the Richmond district of San Francisco.

Tata originally from Bangkok, is one of just 10 people who are officially trained to perform the alternative therapy of face slapping, and the only face slapper in the west.

When applied to the face the beauty therapy is a said to reshape and firm up the skin. As little as four sessions are need to see the results, but with each session costing around $350 only time will tell if the public see the worth in the alternative therapy.

Surprisingly, the face is not the only area of the body that can apparently benefit from the art of slapping.

Practioners in Thailand regularly perform the technique to enlarge the breasts or reshape the buttocks. At the Ban Tobnom in Bangkok, Khun Ying Tobnom even offers courses to teach other how to perform slapping massages, but again, prices are not cheap. The standard face-slapping course costs around $162,000 (5 million baht), and the breast slapping $260,000 (8 million baht), and the buttock and body slapping $325,000 (10 million baht).
