This footage of Kazakhstan masseuse Larissa Orynbasarovna massaging a baby boy is taking the internet by storm.
The masseuse can be seen dangling the baby by its ankles, pushing his ankle to his thigh as she swings him from side to side. Larissa claims that the massage helps to ‘heal’ babies, but concerned experts have warned everyone that this kind of treatment could result in severe damage. Stuart Korth of the Foundation of Paediatric Osteopathy told the Sun “some of the movements are acceptable, but the more extreme ones risk dislocating his shoulders, or worst case causing damage to his spinal cord.”
