(Women of Grace – Welcome!.)

And it’s also why the Pontifical document, Jesus Christ, the Bearer of the Water of Life lists rolfing among many practices connected with the New Age: ”Advertising connected with New Age covers a wide range of practices as acupuncture, biofeedback, chiropractics, kinesiology, homeopathy, iridology, massage and various kinds of ‘bodywork’ (such as orgonomy, Feldenkrais, reflexology, Rolfing, polarity massage, therapeutic touch, etc.), meditation and visualization, nutritional therapies, psychic healing, various kinds of herbal medicine, healing by crystals, metals, music or colors, reincarnation therapies and, finally, twelve-step programs and self-help groups. The source of healing is said to be within ourselves, something we reach when we are in touch with our inner energy or cosmic energy.”

This is a lie and we know who is the “liar and father of lies.” “Women of Grace” blogger Benkovich is beyond her “pay grade” and out of her depth here. One can only wonder about her motivations, and the motivations of her backers, some of whom are connected with the pharmaceutical industry. It is a grave injustice to exploit those who are naive and impose this level of superstition on those who would benefit by “The Gift of a Gracious God.” (Homeopathy) I could dismantle her arguments on Rolfing, etc., (though I rarely recommend Rolfing, it does have a place) and so on. She has no background in science or medicine or alternative healing therapies inspired by the merciful Lord, and will be accountable for the suffering of those she frightens, spiritually blackmails and otherwise intimidates out of seeking appropriate, validated alternative treatments. In the fiasco of Ireland’s current medical services, effective alternatives to “conmed” are needed now, more than ever.

Talk about capitalising on people’s fears.
