- With all this scrutiny going around regarding Reflexology claims in the EU, when you watch this what do you think?
Do you agree or disagree?
Another decision upheld by the authority concerned a website advertisement for Wonderful Works promoting the benefits of reflexology.
The website stated "some uses for reflexology we have done include but not limited to: diabetes ... cancer (all types) and breast cancer.''
The complainant said there was no evidence to support the claims made.
The complaints board said the advertisement contained unrealistic outcomes and exaggerated claims that were likely to mislead or deceive consumers and ordered the advertisement ordered to be removed.
Σας εκπαιδεύουν κατά τέτοιο τρόπο ώστε πιστεύετε ότι μπορείτε να "θεραπεύσετε" με την Ρεφλεξολογία?
have you been trained to believe you can cure diseases with Reflexology? "Current attempts at regulation have exposed these contradictions. The Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (or OfQuack, as they are affectionately known) has a Code of Conduct which forbids alternative therapists making claims without evidence. Blogger Simon Perry complained about every single reflexologist on the register, on the day they joined, if they were claiming to treat things like arthritis, infertility, babies with colic, and so on. All were told off, but the CNHC decided that fitness to practice was not impaired, because their reflexology expert said that the practitioners would have honestly believed their claims to be reasonable, since they would have been trained to believe that they could treat these diseases."http://www.badscience.net/2010/02/how-do-you-regulate-wu/
