What are the benefits of Face-slapping massage?

Here at Daniel Beauty Ltd I am always on the look out for new beauty treatments to offer my existing 3D-lipo clients  - so this caught my eye.

A beautician in San Francisco has opened the first face-slapping salon in America named 'Tata Massage'.

Thai natural health practitioner Rassameesaitarn Wongsirodkul, known as Tata, charges £220 for a 15-minute session where she slaps, pinches, and smooths the clients face.

She and her husband Mawan claimed that this unusual technique is a natural alternative to chemical skin-firming treatments such as Botox.

She claims that it firms and slims the face as well as reducing wrinkles and make the pores smaller.

Despite the high price tag, the couple added that just a week after opening, they already had clients through the door wanting to try the treatment, which is already popular in Thailand.

There is no medical evidence to prove that face-slapping works; doctors say it could cause some temporary benefits such as swelling and a flushed complexion.

Tata plans to return to Thailand next year to expand her face-slapping skills, where her next venture will be learning the ancient art of what she calls 'butt punching'.

Sounds lovely - maybe I should get trained in this and offer it to my massage clients too. What do you think?
