With everybody in Longyearbyen on pins and needles, Daniel Skyle picked a good week to visit in the hope of promoting his new business. The Swedish native offered two days of free acupuncture treatments at Guesthuset 102 in the hope of luring customers to what he said will be a visiting clinic four times a year. In addition to promising he can make back pain, headaches, depression and oh-so-many other miseries go away, he also says its a remedy for those out in the cold too long and it’s effective on sled dogs. Not all of it involves needles (and he starts getting emphatic about the word “painless” when the subject is brought up. The cold thing, for instance, involves waving some heated wand-like thing over the skin which, for whatever reason, supposedly works better than just huddling near the furnace or fireplace. For those happy to ignore the rather sizable amount of skepticism voiced about the practice in Wikipedia, he plans to return in January.

About Post Author

Mark Sabbatini

I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
