Well, Looks Like a Wellness Exorcism Took Place at Davos

Every year, billionaires and humble millionaires from around the world gather in Davos, Switzerland, to discuss pressing global issues at the World Economic Forum. This year, teen climate activist Greta Thunberg took the stage to discuss the urgent need for climate action, Donald Trump compared Elon Musk to Thomas Edison, and according to this video posted on Instagram by The Bitch Bible podcast host Jackie Schimmel, Dancing With the Stars star Julianne Hough had negative energy pulled out of her butt.

During the demonstration, which appears to have taken place somewhere called the “Equality Lounge,” chiropractor and bodyworker John Amaral spoke about the body’s nervous system, and the huge feeling of relief and release that comes with a dissipation of energy, while Hough jerked and writhed on a massage table in front of him.

At one point, Amaral appears to guide something invisible (energy, I guess) from Hough’s neck, down through her spine, and then tug it out of the seat of her brown leather slacks. As he does this, Hough groans and screams.

“An expression of emotion may happen when the system moves,” Amaral explains.

Hough continues to groan, and then lurches up and off the table, her spine curving tightly, like some sort of wellness Linda Blair.

These results may not be typical, Amaral tells the crowd, which, tragically, does not seem to have been filmed. As a dancer and actress, he says, Hough has practice “just allowing things to move through.” Most people — “especially in Davos” — wouldn’t make that sound, so they would have physical pain and tension built up in their bodies.

In a testimonial on Amaral’s website, Hough wrote: “I’m forever grateful to have John by my side helping me connect physically, emotionally and energetically back to my true essence.”

His other devotees include Gwyneth Paltrow, who included the healer on her new Netflix show, The Goop Lab, and said, “The first time that John worked on me, I really just cried.”

Do you think other Davos 2020 attendees, like German chancellor Angela Merkel, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin also had negative energies pulled out of their butts between sessions? If you have video of them doing so, please email it to me as soon as possible.
