The Daily Dot reported that Goop later pulled the NASA claim in its piece while releasing a statement regarding the controversy.
Of course, Goop isn't the only site that has tested out the stickers.
The lifestyle website's explanation continues: 'Body Vibes stickers (made with the same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits so they can monitor an astronaut's vitals during wear) come pre-programmed to an ideal frequency, allowing them to target imbalances'.
NASA just called out Goop, the movie star's lifestyle brand, over wearable healing stickers that it promoted on its website.
You stick them on your left arm ("close to your heart") and they will then "rebalance the energy frequency" in your body. We will ignore, for the moment, the question of how you program a sticker, and instead contemplate how sticking "conductive carbon" on exposed skin can alleviate your ailments.

Mayor Karen Weaver said in a release the situation was "under control" but that officials sought to take "extra precautions". Law enforcement agencies in both the United States and Canada are working together to find more information on the suspect.
However, a new product Goop editors have recommended, Body Vibes Stickers, has come under fire by several organisations, including NASA.
Spacesuits are made from spandex, synthetic polymers, and other similar materials, none of which "deliver natural bio-frequencies through energy resonant exchange to optimize brain and body functions" like the site promises. "If they promote healing, why do they leave marks on the skin when they are removed?" NASA confirmed its space suits are not even lined with carbon material, and even if they were, it would have nothing to do with monitoring vital signs.
Perhaps we'll have to buy a pack of 24 for $120 (£95) to find out. "Wow. What a load of BS this is", he told the site.
"Not only is the whole premise like snake oil, the logic doesn't even hold up", says Shelhamer.
The Independent has contacted both Goop and Body Vibes for their reponses to NASA's comments but are yet to hear back.
