Is anyone here a fan of any of these (acupuncture, homeopathy, etc) or think there is a single one that holds any merit? My SIL is a Reiki practitioner. I can all but not laugh out loud when she shows me her hand waving and listen to the bull shit about the energy around us and how one can learn to manipulate it with some hand motions and thoughts and symbols. I cannot believe she charges people for this. She's really a nice person, albeit gullible and truly doesn't feel she's ripping anybody off. She really and truly believes in this crap with all her heart. And she paid good money to take classes, so she's victim of the rip off as well and I feel bad telling her how I think she's a fool.
It's a bit hard to be polite and not laugh in her face, but she knows how I feel and just thinks I'm the misguided one, lol. Still, its amazing people can go for this junk science.
