I can hear Giuseppe Verdi's (that's Joe Green, you know) "Anvil Chorus" playing while treatment is administered.

Slamming the top of a tv or radio often worked, why not this?

This is one of those weird ones where the basic concept actually has merit (pressure waves can be beneficial, as in a Jacuzzi), but the implementation is so very, very wrong.

Well, it does work on legs bent the other way, so why not? Also, hitting on a sandbag can be very relaxing for patients.

£2: bag of sand.
£5: labour costs of hitting you with it.
£2,000: knowing exactly where to hit you.

Ah, the 60s and 70s, when you could take any kind of weird behavior and call it “therapy”...
