A Man's Rectum is His Castle!
Now comes this story of a Scandi doctor who has an interesting technique for relieving headaches and back pain:
A doctor who received a warning for using a controversial 'anal massage' technique to cure various aches and pains has won an appeal at Stockholm County Court.
Several years ago, the man was warned by Sweden's Medical Responsibility Board (HSAN) on at least three occasions after using his method to treat an elderly woman's headaches and back pain.
At the time the doctor was working in the Stockholm area. The woman described his treatment as "an incredibly offensive encroachment".
The doctor has also run into difficulties in neighbouring Denmark and Norway.
The doc claims that the complaints arise not from his unusual treatments, but rather because he is a bad comedian:
The man described his dismissal in Norway as part of a witch-hunt against him, and said that his technique was successful.
The Norwegian counterpart to HSAN issued a warning after the doctor told Swedish jokes to a group of Norwegians who were mourning a death.
The man said at the time that he considered himself misunderstood.
"I have a personality disorder, or rather a syndrome, a form of Aspergers. Just like Bill Gates or Einstein, for example," he told Aftonbladet.
"I have made it impossible for myself within the healthcare sector because I behave childishly sometimes. I am different, but cleverer."
