“What is so strange about galvanic bath?”
A reader asked me that. It’s not actually quite as outrageous as it looks. It’s really just a whole-body TENS machine treatment (mild electrical stimulation of tissue). But it does reek rather amusingly of “What could possibly go wrong?” And, medically speaking, it’s waaaay out in left field, and unlikely to be good for anything. If nothing else, it was doomed to extinction by economics: the high cost of the infrastructure and equipment to deliver such treatments is way out of proportion to the slim hope of any significant benefit.
Plus, can you imagine the lawsuits it would generate today?
