This strange video shows actress Julianne Hough receive an “exorcism” of her negative emotions by a Gwyneth Paltrow-approved “healer”.
The two-time Dancing With The Stars champion was filmed screaming and writhing on a massage table while John Amaral – described as an “energy practitioner” on Paltrow’s homeopathy website Goop– moves his hands above her body.
In the weird clip, filmed at the World Economic Forum in Davos yesterday, John floats his hand above Julianne's back, only for her to shriek and scream like she is in pain.
She can also be seen to squirm and shake while rearing her head up, while Amaral explains to the audience how his “treatment” works.
“This is spontaneous,” he claims, “It's not a placebo effect. It's reproducible.”
Many people who watched the video expressed their disbelief on Twitter.
A critic wrote: "We can all agree that Julianne Hough has lost her damn mind, right?
"Like full-blown Britney circa 2007 with a 'health & wellness' twist crazy."
"Thought I'd seen it all until I saw Julianne Hough being exorcised," mused a second person.
A third joked: "Where is Julianne hough’s Oscar nomination for her exorcism?"
John has previously told Goop that he “talks” with the “energy” of his clients.
He said: “When I’m working on someone, I’m looking to find the receptivity in their field of energy that allows me to start a conversation or an interaction with their energy.”
He added: “I might be two or three feet off the body doing something with my hands—which looks like I’m waving my hands over them—and then their body might start to move.
“They might start to cry; their body might start to shake.”
