      Dutch Faith Healers Make Inroads
      http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/aponline/20001229/aponline100337_000.htm
      (...)
      The 52-year-old former ballet dancer, who goes by the name of Jomanda, is one of
      a host of healers, New Age and other, who are using radio and television and
      making inroads into Dutch society, deeply influenced by Calvinism.
      [...more...]

      In fact, Jomanda has been around for many years, and today is less ubiquitous
      than before. The exposure of most other "healers" appears to be mostly limited
      to public access channels.

      I have today added a short page on Jomanda:
