Would you go under the knife for a massage?

National Geographic Travel takes you to Taiwan for this unique massage experience.

Using a pair of cleaver knives, massage therapists perform the Dao Liao, a traditional knife healing therapy that originated from China some 2,500 years ago. Dao Liao was originally used by monks to heal themselves inside monasteries.

Two cleaver knives are used, representing the complementary forces of yin and yang. The therapy has the effect of changing the body’s energy and making you feel more relaxed.

Massage therapists assure that the knives are very safe. The knives are also meticulously sharpened before each session.

So would you want to try it?
