The Day Spa Association issued a release to its members urging them to take action against a new career-threatening regulation.

The subtle change of vocabulary from "alternative health care" to "alternative medicine" makes all of these industries subject to control by the FDA as medicine.

Anybody else who provided any of these services would be practicing medicine without a license, and subject to incarceration and fines.
