From WeirdAsiaNews, with a fresh coat of Whitening to the International Liberty blog:
Police in Chiba Prefecture arrested three men this month on suspicion of violating Japan’s Medical Practitioners Law by providing coffee enemas without the proper medical qualifications, according to local media reports.
Chikayoshi Hishiki (55) and two associates offered coffee-based enemas as a beauty treatment at their now-defunct alternative medicine clinics, according to leading daily Sankei Shimbun.
The three suspects denied any wrongdoing, claiming they only provided the equipment and cleaned up afterwards, while the clients themselves administered the procedure, the report said.
George & Oliver Co., a Tokyo-based online marketer of health and beauty products, has jumped on this movement, offering do-it-yourself coffee rectal infusion kits for 9,240 yen (approx. $110).
Here's the International Liberty take on this crisis:
Too bad the gift-giving season is already over....
And now for a series of sentences I never thought I would type. Never, ever, never.... The picture of the coffee enema T-shirt came from here. The picture of the coffee enema kit and equipment came from here.
