CHONBURI/PATTAYA: -- The family of a woman who had her leg broken while having a traditional Thai massage have gone to the media for justice after the owner of the shop went back on a promise to pay her bills.

 

Kapook reported that 59 year old Pimyanee Thanwongsakun had visited the shop in Samet district.

 

The massage was done by the male owner of the shop, a man called Thanaphop Klachingchai, 50.

 

Pimyanee's daughter Saranya, 25, told reporters that in the course of the massage Thanaphop broke her mother's right leg near the knee. She had to go to hospital to have it pinned and needs further urgent treatment.

 

Initially the owner of the shop promised to pay for the treatment but he has since reneged on this, said the daughter who added that a complaint had been filed with Samet police in the matter.

 

Pimyanee was a regular visitor to a massage shop but this washer first time at this particular establishment, said Kapook.

 

Thaivisa notes that the kind of massage advertised by the shop is referred to as "jap sen" in Thai and can involve considerable pressure being exerted.

I'm no fan either, you get the wrong person and it can be like being caught in machinery for an hour. 

Outrageous that the shop wasn't sued, let alone they are not paying for damages.

I dare say he got a little carried away, fortunately for me, I changed my mind about doing a Thai massage course, the reality being that I would have probably snapped a few female necks, because of the horny bugger than I am 555

There is no medical benefit in "Thai" massage at all. It's common sense but still people believe in it.

I am not sure if this was  the fault of the massage. Leg bones don't break easy.  I wonder if she had a problem with her bone may be a big cyst that was unknown - or even worse a tumour. The x-ray would show this clearly.

  My wife had a lady come to our house to give her a massage who would stand on top of her as she was lying on the floor, a largish lady 60 kilo at least.  

  Another time she went to see a blind masseur and came back with two red thumb prints from the pressure that he had been applying on her shoulders. A lot of power in Thai massage.

Considering the she of the woman. Suspect that she might have some osteoporosis an affection not uncommon in post menopausal women.

Meaning the bones have lost a lot of calcium and break easily.

I had massage once in Udon at a fancy spa place recommended by a mate.
I am a fairly big guy so they got the biggest strongest woman in the place to do the massage and she almost killed me....bent me in very direction she could...
Worst massage I ever had and it cost a fortune to get tortured in the process.
I now stick to the cheap little massage places and always try to young a young small woman....far safer

I think there are quite a lot of "traditional massage" joints that have no training at all, or certification from non-accredited "training schools".
I am often having to tell masseuses "not so hard!". They seem to think that just because I am very big everything must be done at maximum effort. Crushing muscles against the bone is counter-therapeutic, I do not care what "tradition" is involved.
The woman may indeed have a little osteoporosis going on. A truly trained person would take the client's age into account and not snap a leg bone to the extent of needing surgery and pinning. My personal masseuse will not do certain procedures simply because I am diabetic and bruise easily because of some meds. If we go out she always tells the shop people where we go.

She needs to get an MRI bone density scan as she may have osteopenia or  osteoporosis from lack of minerals and vitamin D.  If her bones are brittle, her hips could break next from her weight. 

 

If her bones are brittle, a defense attorney could argue there was no negligence on the part of the defendant. This is probably the reason why he declined to make any payments.

 

However, with said added stress procedure, they should always ask a customer if they have a history or ever been diagnosed with a bone density problem.   Especially with women.  If in fact she was diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis and he didn't ask, a plaintiff attorney would argue negligence.   Then a  contributory negligence argument could arise,  because of the fact that she didn't disclose her medical condition, depending on local laws.

There are actually a number of medical studies that contradict that.
While not the "miracle cure" that some proponents would claim, it has been proven to have a number of beneficial results, including beneficial hormonal changes which are quantitatively significant and not merely subjective "feelings".
"Feel good" hormones such as serotonin, oxytocin, and dopamine have been shown to increase, while the stress hormones such as epinephrine decrease in response to massage stimuli.
Particularly noticeable to me is a visible decrease in pitting edema in my feet and legs, which my partner has remarked upon as well. Good enough for me
