    Foreigners queuing up to be hit in the back by monk with a hammer!

    Foreigners queuing up to be hit in the back by monk with a hammer!




    Up to a hundred people a day – including many foreigners – believe a monk with a hammer can rid them of back and neck pain.
    The monk – known as “Phra Maha Si Phrai” will give you a few supposedly healthy whacks at a clinic set up in Pak Kret, Nonthaburi.
    Someone went on Facebook to say the treatment had given them a new lease of life after they lost their job.
    But netizens were skeptical – some liked the treatment but many said it was quackery.
    Reporters went to the Avatar Clinic to see for themselves and found one room kitted out as a traditional massage place.
    Here the monk was giving a foreign man a few hits.
    The technique that targets the nerves rather than the bones is supposed to be helpful in the treatment of various back and neck pain especially a condition known as cervical spondylosis or neck arthritis.
    The owner of the clinic said that at least 40 people and sometimes as many as 100 were coming in every day – and they all came back for more saying it did them good

    The Thais love to laugh at whacky races reassures their superiority in the land of the free.

    Indeed.
    And most don't retain the ability to recognize as such within themselves......in a general manner.

    Acupressure is a very old medical art, predating acupuncture. It certainly can work, though I don't know if it always does.
    100 people a day @ 100 baht (guess)....not a bad living, even @ 50 baht.

    Makes a difference from reading about the ones that have been lining up to get hit in the wallet by Thai Ladies.

    The Chinese acupressure foot massage shop in Chiang Mai hits you on the feet with a rubber hammer. You can feel the impact all over your body. Feels nice and relaxing.

    Yeah, accupressure is real.
    The pressure point behind the web between your thumb and index finger works well for headache.

    Erasing lust is more than rubbing one out at a time, many romantic liasons start in bars, dancing places, karaokes and riscotheques I think the DJs are behind it and are in league with the engagement industry.

    Actually ...

    I've 'broken' my back twice. i.e. bulging discs, hospitalisation and put on the dreaded stretching rack.

    As long as it's not in a Catholic Church ...

    I'd plicate over a pouf on the promise of a pounding, even if it is postulation

    How much?
