A pair of well-known German spiritual healers subjected orphans and disabled children to a bit of “divine straightening” during a stop in Pattaya.

Alexander and Caroline Toskar were joined by Bangkok healer Vicky Weber at the Pattaya Orphanage and Children Protection and Development Center during the couple’s late January Thailand tour.

Not claiming to be physical healers, the couple practices what they call “divine straightening,” which purportedly “aligns the spirit, cleanses the soul, straightens the spine and creates harmony with the universe.” The two carried out their ceremony on 70 kids, of which 23 are deaf.

The Toskars said any healing was focused on “mental and psychological problems.”

Alexander Toskar is the son of the well-known Russian healer Pjotr Elkunoviz. The spiritual healing initiated by him twenty years ago became known in Germany and Europe through numerous television reports. The couple has founded centers for spiritual healing in Germany and Switzerland and in 2007 and 2008 were invited by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health to demonstrate the “straightening” on television.
