'Breast-boosting' healer freed by police

A part-time painter who believed he had God-given powers to 'cure' small breasts and numerous bodily malformations has been released on bail by Barcelona police despite being accused of sexual abuse.


The 54-year-old man worked only with female 'patients', claiming "God had given him the powers" to heal women both physically and emotionally.

He claimed to be able to diagnose illnesses his patients were not aware they had, including fibromyalgia, tumours, deformations and future deafness.

His modus operandi for 'treating' small breasts and genital disorders involved massaging the 'troubled area' while "blowing his healing breath into it", Catalan daily La Vanguardia reported.

The healer's wife and daughter also carried out the alleged treatment, with patients as young as 13 sometimes being told to strip before being massaged.

Originally a housepainter, the accused had built up such a loyal clientele that he was eventually able to live off his healing sessions alone, charging €10 an hour.

His methodology and success were eventually called into question by his patients, who decided to file a report against him on February 6th.

The man, who has been accused of sexual abuse and betrayal of trust, is out on bail while he awaits trial.
