Some of us treat ourselves to a nice meal or take a well deserved nap or take a walk, while some others have two knifes rubbed all over their body as a way to relax.

Knife massages are drawing hard-core spa enthusiasts to have cleavers chopped across their faces and bodies in a bizarre new wellness trend.

It shows customers ‘relaxing’ as sharpened cleavers are pressed in rhythmic motions all over them – with nothing but a thin piece of material separating their skin from the blade.

I’d be too afraid.

Hsiao Mei Fang, the owner of Ancient Art Of Knife Therapy Education Centre, in Taipei, Taiwan, has been performing the strange procedure for more than 13 years.

She said: ‘The treatment is originally from China and is 2500 years old. But here we have created an original new knife therapy.

‘Everything has a Yin and a Yang, so instead of using one knife we use two – this represents the Yin and Yang.’

Would you try this?
