According to health minister Aurelijus Veryga, currently providers of
such health promotion services present their activities as educational,
body-welfare, and health promotion. And it misleads service users
because it becomes difficult to distinguish which practices belong to
the sphere of health promotion, and which not. It should therefore be
made very clear that such practices as dolphin therapy, hippotherapy,
leech therapy, acupuncture, and other non-traditional and alternative
forms of medicine are considered to be health promotion services.
