Shonky shamans taint aura of all 'healers'

Postby Nostradamus » 08 Dec 2009, 05:18

This is the sort of thing that I have mentioned a few times. It is the acts of the hooligans that overshadow anything that might be legitimate.

http://www.theage.com.au/national/shonky-shamans-taint-aura-of-all-healers-20091121-is81.html

From the article:
But Thunder Eagle, who speaks with an American accent and now calls himself Shamir Shalom, is not a shaman. He's not even American, native Indian or otherwise. He is Peter de Angelis, a Melbourne-born former plumber who allegedly had sexual contact with up to six women who paid him for healing services.


Mr Andrews' call comes after a Victorian company last week received a written warning from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission for peddling a $400 vibration treatment that it claimed could cure swine flu. Advertised as having a 100 per cent success rate, it was said to work even if the healer and client lived on opposite sides of the world.


When contacted by The Sunday Age, Mr Shalom refused to confirm he worked as a shaman and denied ever having inappropriate sexual conduct with women, claiming he had not had sex for 11 years. He said he worked as a psychic detective and the allegations against him were part of a conspiracy to silence him over information he had about underworld figures and police corruption.


Shamir Shalom masqueraded as an American Indian shaman, promising to cure a woman's breast cancer by sucking out the ''serpents''. He placed his hands on her ''chakra'' points to remove ''energy blockages''.


If you read the article be sure to read the last part in which some of the alternative methods are described.

I'm definitely in the wrong business... Now I remember why I had to give up my dream of being a massage therapist for the Miss Hawaiian Tropic Bikini Pageant.

Nope, not me.

My runway days were long before the inception of such things.
