National Holistic Service

Why is a Liverpool hospital offering dubious “holistic treatments”? Fellow blogger Peter M. Heimlich (Atlanta, GA, US) and I have asked UK oversight agency

A couple of days ago, I reported an item about how Aintree University Hospitals in Liverpool offers, apparently via the publicly-funded National Health Service, these “holistic treatments” (all links to Quackwatch.com):

“aromatherapy”
• “aromatic facial”
“reflexology”
“crystal therapy”
“reiki”
“colour therapy (chromotherapy)”

Today Peter and I co-signed (and are co-blogging) this request for a review to the Care Quality Commission, “the independent regulator of health and social care in England.”
