Turoff, Stephen
Contemporary British spiritual healer who practices psychic
surgery. His healing is through an entity claimed to be
‘‘Dr. Joseph Kahn,’’ whose healing resembles that of Philippine
healers. At times, a real scalpel is manipulated; at other times,
an invisible syringe or other apparatus is involved.
Purported healings effected through Turoff’s mediumship
include cases of fibroids in the womb, infected lungs, and liver
tumor. ‘‘Dr. Kahn’’ is said to be one of a team of 18 spirit helpers.
Turoff has demonstrated his healing before members of
the Noah’s Ark Society for Physical Mediumship.
