Knife Therapy: Looks Bizarre but Clients Swear it Works
People are always trying to find better ways to relieve aches and pains caused by too much stress. This one is a cut above—literally. In Taiwan, some people have even taken to trying out “knife therapy,” a treatment wherein two sharpened cleavers are pressed in “chopping” motions all over the client’s face and body.
The video of this unconventional massage treatment had been viewed thousands of times and anyone unfamiliar with the therapy would definitely feel anxious just watching the therapist do its work.
“The treatment is originally from China and is 2,500 years old. But here we have created an original and new knife therapy. Everything has Yin and Yang, so instead of using one knife, we use two – this represents the Yin and Yang,” Ancient Art of Knife Therapy Education Centre Owner Hsiao Mei Fang told Caters News.
According to Fang, they used special knives for the therapy and every stroke helps the client to renew his energy and make him more relaxed.
“The knife is specially made so it’s very safe. We wouldn’t use a kitchen knife to do this,” said Fang. “The massage changes the energy inside the person and makes them more relaxed. A lot of people think it’s just for fun but people don’t realize this will change their lives. After they have experienced it they tell their friends and they all come to us,” she added.
Knife therapy may look intimidating at first but many clients vow that it works.
“At first, I was so scared because we use knives for cutting chicken and pork meat. So, I was afraid of being cut like that too. However, after I have tried a knife massage, I realized it was safe and actually quite comfortable,” shared one client.
