Maybe what we all need right now to ease the tension in the world, is a massage. But not just any massage.

I love a massage. Working out the knots and stress with a massage is a great way to recharge and flush the toxins, as well as get some attention on a couple of troubled spots on my body, but...with a meat cleaver? I'm not so sure this is what I'd have in mind.

From the BBC, it looks like the new trend in body massage is meat cleaver massages. Apparently these have been popular in Taiwan for a while and are starting to pop up all over the world.

The process is just like a regular massage. You lie on the table and the masseuse covers you with a towel, then goes to town with a couple of dull meat cleavers.

Those who enjoy the meat cleaver massage say it feels good and helps with the spiritual energy stuff. I'll stick to the skin on skin contact.

Have you had a meat cleaver massage? How was it? If not, would you get one? Let us know in the comments.
