A Thai natural health practitioner claims she can boost bra sizes by ‘breast-slapping.’ The traditional therapy is said to enlarge the breasts with no surgery whatsoever – just a good deal of kneading, massaging and pummelling of the area.
Khemmikka Na Songkhla learnt the unlikely technique from her grandmother, who intervened after seeing the flat-breasted teenager attempting to boost her assets with creams. The 44-year-old, better known as Khunying Tobnom, made a career out of the wisdom and has also cornered the Bangkok market on buttock-slapping, to firm the rear, and face-slapping, to tone the visage.
‘Ancient people didn’t share it much because back then people didn’t care about breast size,’ she told the Bangkok Post. But now, it seems her skills are much in-demand.
The slapping works, she says, by shifting fat from one area to another, kneading excess fat towards the breasts. Doubters of the treatment’s efficacy may be assuaged by the Thai government’s endorsement of Khunying Tobnom’s trade.
