The primary purpose of this clearly marked "Homeopathic Stasis Clinic" would be to separate well-to-do stupid people from their money. People would be given a consultation with a white-coated "Special Cure And Major Medicinal Examination Reporter"

These highly trained specialists would, without making any actual medical claim, suggest a regime of magnetic resonance chambers, special nerve stimulation environments, sound chambers, Energy Pillows, and other environmental protocols. The "patient" would then be shown to a back room where he would be given a restful hour's nap. He would then be charged, a new appointment made, and put back on the street convinced he's feeling 100% better now.

       Not sure if this would work as well as just prescribing some stronger placebos, but [+] for unprincipled exploitation of the clinically stupid.

       Homoeopathy is spelt with a vanishingly tiny second "o".

       Expensive pseudo-medical treatment centers designed to separate the affluent and vain from their surplus cash are nothing new; southern California is full of them, and, strangely, we have one in Skowhegan, Maine (provided Irene didn't knock it over). The 'homeopathic sleep clinic' is just a new twist on an old idea. Sorry.
