Thais set world mass-massage record

Thailand has long been known as the massage capital of the world. Now it has a Guinness World Record to prove it after some 641 massage therapists mass-massaged 641 people simultaneously for 12 minutes to win the honor Thursday at an indoor arena in Bangkok. The event was organized by the Health Ministry to promote the Southeast Asian nation's massage and spa industry.
