Breast Slapping: A Career That Could Pad Your Wallet In A Huge Way
In the classic 1959 surfer girl movie "Gidget," Sandra Dee performs bust exercises before bed to fill out her petite frame. The desire for many women to enhance their chests has a long history, and has only intensified over the decades. There are pills, pumps and creams, and now a new technique known as "breast slapping." This one's different, however, in that government medical agency has confirmed that it's not a fraud. And now just 10 lucky pupils will pay over a quarter-million dollars to learn the government-approved procedure.
Khemmikka Na Songkhla might be the only woman in the world to know the treatment, which consists of patting and pinching the muscles and fat of the breast tissue in a rhythm that goes very well with Thai dance music. Women have experienced two-inch increases in their breast size, and can also have the treatment done to firm buttocks and slenderize the face. The Thai Health Ministry decided to check it out, and after a six-month study, confirmed that it's just so crazy it works.
There will of course be skeptics, but millions swear by similar kinds of alternative medical treatments that seem to contradict Western understanding of the body, health and science, like acupuncture, reflexology or reiki. But it's unlikely that breast-slapping salons will be popping up around American metropolitan areas. The 44-year-old Bangkok-based beautician, better known as "Khunying Tobnom," is choosing her successors almost as selectively as Willy Wonka. "I believe that my wisdom is very valuable," she told the Bangkok Post. "It's a heritage from my grandmother."
Why would such a miraculous procedure be undiscovered until now, while other natural wellness wonders have ancient roots? Apparently it had made the rounds. "But ancient people didn't share it much," Tobnom says, "because back then people didn't care about breast size."
While women getting slapped around in the name of desirability might be an uncomfortable thought, it's certainly less brutal than a scalpel.
