Can you believe it?

For the most, CES attendees are what you'd expect. Big corporate entities with gigantic, sprawling booths and smaller businesses with kiosks and tables. Everyone tries to put their best foot forward, throwing up impressive new products and trying to wow journalists with flashy demos and open bars.

But, at CES 2011, there's also at least one snake oil salesman. Meet Acu-Therapy, the only company I've seen selling products out of their booth on the show floor. And those products are an extensive range of electric back and foot massagers. Which doesn't sound weird, until you realize that Acu-Therapy touts their muscle-zappers as a miracle cure for damn near everything.

The banner behind their product table featured a huge list of the ailments the Acu-Therapy line can treat. Everything from Sciatica to TMJ syndrome and CES-back. I tried the product...and it was actually a pretty decent little massage number.

I think the salesman liked me, because he very proudly showed off a chart of the human foot that showed exactly which organs what sections of your feet corresponded with. He then explained how the Acu-Therapy can improve those organ's functions through the twin wonders of Acupuncture and Lies.

Ah well- let's just consider this a dose of 'flavor'. Crazy people need trade shows too.
