My employer does its best to provide all kinds of services to make life better for its employees. So now we're offering masage therapy as well. Yummy. You still need to pay the massage person, but still, it's nice idea. Only, there's something about the massage therapist that makes me skeptical that this was such a good idea:
(name witheld) is also trained in performing craniosacral therapy (for relief of migraines, headaches, head trauma) and visceral therapy (for relief of digestive or lung congestion).
Relief of migraines? Head trauma? Migraine is a neurological disease. Head trauma means injury either to the brain or scalp or the skull. If you have any of those, shouldn't you be seeing a doctor? Is this person a doctor? No. Should people who are not doctors be practising medicine in the workplace? I didn't think so.
If you don't think this is aproblem, just imagine "relief of digestive congestion" in your office. Actually, no, please don't.
Stephen Barrett, M.D. explains why craniosacral therapy is quackery.
It's a fun read.Posted by eliane at July 6, 2006 06:01 PM
