A member asked:

Can massage really change the skull shape? a korean massage claims to make people's skulls smaller but surely pressure would thicken facial bones if anything?

Nah: Got data to support the claim? If not (as i suspect), it's hooey. Once your bones are grown, they are grown (barring issues like osteoporosis, etc.).

No: I don't believe massage can significantly change skull shape/size.
