Thai Beauty Technique Promises Tighter Skin, Smaller Pores

Some people will beat themselves up just to look a little younger. But at one Thai beauty parlor in San Francisco, you can pay other people to do the beating for you.

The Tata Massage salon in San Francisco offers a unique service to its clients: an old Thai beauty treatment that features repeated slaps to the face, which supposedly tighten up wrinkles and reduce the size of pores.

Co-owner Mawan Sombuntham says his wife Tata is one of only a handful of people in the world who are masters of the technique.

"This has been around for more than 100 years," Sombuntham said. "The reason why there are so few people who can do this is because [Tata's] teacher is very selective in choosing who to teach this technique to. She is only going to accept 10 students of face-slapping in her lifetime."

Folks looking to the alternative treatment for rejuvenation find themselves on the business end of Tata's hands. She delivers vigorous pats to their chins, cheeks and foreheads, then watches as shriveling disappears. The service costs about $350.

Sombuntham claims his salon is the only place in the Western Hemisphere to offer the service.

But if your saggy face isn't the only thing that needs attention, you're in luck. Sombuntham says Tata is headed back to Thailand soon to add the ancient technique of butt-slapping to her repertoire.
