While some massages offer up a relaxing, calm experience to help all your worries simply float away, others are known for being the complete opposite - like the one YouTuber Faruk Acar and his pals recently had.
In a video, he explains how he and a group of friends went down to a Turkish bath, saying in the video: "We are going to the Turkish baths. I was tired this week - really, really tired - and we need the rest.
"And the Turkish bath is really good for this."
But rest was not what they got.
After enjoying a dip in the pool, lounging around on a hot floor and a session in the sauna, the lads were ready for their massage.
Lying on raised platforms, they were each scrubbed down by someone wearing an exfoliating mitt - at which point one of Acar's friends said he was feeling 'good'.
They then had bubbles rubbed over their bodies, before the slapping began.
At one point, Acar's masseuse even cracks his neck by pushing his head to each side.
Acar begins laughing as the surprisingly painful treatment continues - being flipped over onto his front so that back slapping can commence.
At one point, he yells: "Oh my God!"
As the others are being hosed down, Acar goes over to his friend and jokes: "Are you crying?"
Acar then says to the camera: "I can't walk," before going to watch another of his friends go through the same process - alternating between giggling and yelping just as Acar had.
Afterwards, he asks his friend: "Are you okay?"
His exhausted-looking pal replies: "No, I am not."
Since being posted, the video has been viewed more than 250,000 times, with hundreds of comments from people saying they couldn't stop laughing.
One person commented: "It's like a torture and massage at [the] same time hahahah."
Another said: "The spinning and slapping scene... Omg, it makes my day."
A third wrote: "I can't stop laughing!"
Another compared the experience to a carwash 'but for people', while a fifth said: "I was laughing for your friend Semih especially when he was twisted by the masseur."
