Japs At It Again. This Time It’s ‘Ringtone’ Therapy

A while ago, I had posted about 'Number Therapy'. If that got you scratching your head, then this will make you want to pull your hair out.

Across Japan the arrival of spring is bringing out the cherry blossom but it is also making people reach for their handkerchiefs as, at this time of year, hay fever is rife.

A company called the Japan Ringing Tone Laboratory has developed what it claims is a cure.

For relief, sufferers need only wait for a call on their mobile phone. The sound is supposed to dislodge pollen if the user holds the handset up to their nose.

Another of the so-called therapeutic ring tones is for those trying to lose weight.


Now a ringtone to cure our headaches/common cold bla bla. Sure, why not? And you thought Aroma Therapy was a stupid overhyped concept… Ha!

Japan Ringing Tone Laboratory – That’s the best name you guys could come up with? Seriously?! Anyways, this gets better:

The company is being led by Matsumi Suzuki – who was also responsible for a device called Bow-Lingual – a device that claimed to interpret the meaning of a bark. !??! FREAK ALERT!
