Neighbor Lev wonders about a new business on Cortland:
I’m puzzled by the awkward, somewhat self-undermining slogan of the new Chinese massage parlor on Cortland:
Traditional Chinese Massage
We use only Chinese massage and energy to heal, not medicine.
What manner of non-medical healing does traditional Chinese massage bring about? Is medicine now something to be feared or avoided? Perhaps a medical doctor could open up shop next door under the complementary slogan: “We use only Western medicine and money to heal, not massage.”
Moreover, what kind of energy is involved? Is it adequately green and renewable?
Inquiring Bernal minds want to know.
