Thai news sites and social media were abuzz yesterday after a video was shared of a Thai man who died while having a massage. 
 
Questions were being asked as to how safe a Thai massage is. 
 
"Ton" the assumed name of the younger brother of the victim explained what happened to Sanook.
 
Ton said that his brother had been playing football with friends and suffered a twisted ankle. He went for treatment at a doctor. 
 
A week later the victim and some friends went to the floating market where the victim complained of being in leg pain and wanted to get a Thai massage.
 
After being in the massage shop ten minutes he stopped breathing. It was 30 minutes before an ambulance arrived. 
 
He could not be revived. 
 
Doctors said that he died from a blood clot. 
 
The victim's wife said she attached no blame to the massage shop and had not filed a claim with police.
 
She said she received 40,000 baht from the shop.

I witnessed an incident once at Mali Market near Impact Arena where a woman lost conscience during a dodgy spine massage using a piece of wood and hammer. After seeing that I believe that Thai massage can kill you if not done right.

A massage is not a good treatment for a twisted ankle. It does nothing to help the damaged tissue, and it can encourage blood clots to break free and hit vital areas, as what happened here.

I agree with the first line, but only partially with the blood clots part.

Would not blood clots "break free" eventually, with or without massage ?

I would not have a Thai massage if I was paid to, the last one in 2011 nearly crippled me. Too many of them at it are not qualified, even if they do have a certificate!

Got to agree with that, last time i had a Thai massage, some muscles in my leg were hurting for days.

Oil massage is not bad though.

Not a physician, but it is my understanding that most dissolve on their own.
