I have never seen massage therapy as a medical practice either, tbh. Yeah, massages feel fucking great, but what medical benefit do they have other than loosening tight muscles? The same for energy work, although I am willing to look into it more (as I am curious and know people who practice it), and acupuncture. I believe the more spiritual an "alternative medicine" practice is, the more "mind over matter" it feels. Will the ill away, I suppose, rather than trust the pharamaceutical boogeyman.


Like if something feels good and makes you feel nice that’s great, but it should never replace actual medical treatment if you need it.
