Thought Field Therapy (and More!)

Why is UK’s Hoveton & Wroxham Medical Centre offering dubious “alternative” therapies? US reporter and I have asked UK oversight agency

Hoveton & Wroxham Medical Centre

On April 25, my Atlanta, GA blogging buddy Peter M. Heimlich and I co-signed and co-blogged a request for a review of dubious medical treatments being offered by a Liverpool hospital. On May 2, we blogged about a similar request we made re: Derbyshire hospital offering “energy therapies.”

We filed our request with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), “the independent regulator of health and social care in England.”

Today we filed another request with the CQC re: Hoveton & Wroxham Medical Centre (see the map) which – according to their website – is offering these treatments (all links to Quackwatch.com):

“Hypnotherapy”
“Neuro-Linguistic Programming” (NLP)
“Time Line Therapy”
“Life Coaching”
“Emotional Freedom Techniques” (EFT)
“Thought Field Therapy” (TFT)
“Eye Movement Integration”
“Energy Healing”
“Mindfulness”
“Reiki”
