This is an incredibly disturbing news report, I think it is worth sharing here as my understanding is that this kind of crime is very much under-reported.

It also illustrates very clearly some of the dangers inherent in a situation where anyone can set themselves up as a "therapist", using  newage concepts such as parapsychology and discredited methods such as hypnotism.  Also the covert administration of powerful drugs, which IME is a feature of the MO of many of the worst newage predators.

The translation, via google translate, is not great but the story is an important one IMO

Story as follows:
