Excuse me, exactly how does that work? Hocus pocus in holistic healthcare


page updated

summary

Laura Allen’s book is unique. As far as I know, she is the first massage therapist to ever write one like it: a scathing and sassy denunciation of her profession’s love affair with crystals, chakras, and fringe science. Addressing her colleagues throughout, she tells them, “Our profession has turned into the snake oil medicine show.”

The book takes the reader on a tour of most of the weird practices that seem to cling to massage therapy like parasites, and asks again and again, “Excuse me, exactly how does that work?” In most cases, of course, the point is that they don’t.

Read the rest of my full review.
