An agave boon massage is a particularly rare kind of massage that was created in Thailand in the 12th century for members of the Thai aristocracy. The message consists of three stages. The first is coating the subject in agave nectar completely, inserting reeds into their nose and mouth so that they do not suffocate. The second stage is a deep tissue rub down characterized by swift, chopping palm-strikes. Finally, the masseuse sets candles about the room and summons the ancestors, who grant a boon to the client of their choosing.
