Knife massages, or dao liao, sound like a gimmicky tourist trap, but the tradition is actually over 2000 years old. The tradition died out in China, but not before spreading to Japan and Taiwan — the latter of which being the only place where it is kept alive today.
Knife massages purportedly enhance metabolism, improve blood and sleeping quality, aid in fat loss, and provide relief from sore muscles. Although it may sound scary, the knife blades are totally dull, so there is zero chance of being accidentally sliced. Instead, the metal blades are aimed in a quick, chopping motion, apparently removing negative energy while they pound your pressure points and relax your muscles.
