Health horoscopes next?

Letter to the editor

Posted: Monday, February 24, 2003

I am very disappointed to find this "Healing touch" silliness has crept into vogue in Juneau. This practice has been thoroughly discredited through any number of studies, yet still seems to persist among gullible patients and self-deluded "practitioners."

What is more worrisome is the acceptance by real medical scientists at Bartlett Hospital. Has no one even considered demanding testing of this wild claim? What next? Hospital staff astrologers?
