As we have established on this FACTS site, Esther Rockett and Lance Martin are the major coordinators of the hate and defamation campaign against Universal Medicine and associated professionals. This has been conducted online through vitriolic and false blogging with comments made with specific and deliberate innuendo to defame and cast doubt and suspicion as well as making outright false allegations of sexual abuse and openly alleging that those who support Universal Medicine are ‘sexual abuse apologists’.
The only one that needs to apologise is Esther Rockett, as she is the one who is making grossly unfounded comments – even abusing and deliberately misusing terms of anatomy to attempt to create a moral panic McCarthyism style, severely embarrassing herself professionally in the process by posting pictures online that do not indicate any sort of inappropriate touch, calling them ‘abusive’ and mis-labelling body parts that are clearly not being touched.
It is doubtful, if we consider this apparent misconception of body parts, that Esther Rockett would pass any sort of anatomy viva, something that is compulsory for practicing any sort of professional bodywork, including acupuncture.
Furthermore, the location of the vulva, anus and breasts are pretty obvious to people even with no anatomy training, and if Esther Rockett can’t even get that right, then what else is she getting wrong?
Esther Rockett has taken pictures from a Universal Medicine training manual from around 2005, which was specifically for use within the context of a course and not designed for publication outside of this context or to be used in isolation from the supporting text or indeed to be considered without the verbal instructions given during such courses.
Taking the pictures out of context as she has done is a bit like taking pictures out of a medical training manual, where for example someone might be trained how to respectfully examine a breast, the abdomen, or examine for a hernia, as part of an overall training, and then posting these images online, accusing doctors of engaging in abusive practices simply to undermine the authenticity and authority of medical schools. And this is easily done, simply by taking things out of context.
Of course, medical schools and medical training are not going to be questioned by Esther Rockett as they are not the target of her and Lance Martin’s vitriolic campaign. But Esther’s concerted attacks about the complementary health services offered by Universal Medicine and the way she has conducted these attacks by presenting ludicrous interpretations of the manual pictures, sits oddly with her own profession.
By engaging in consistent online abuse and by aligning herself with an organisation, Friends of Science in Medicine, that is committed to stamping out complementary health care – of which Esther Rockett is apparently a committed practitioner of acupuncture – she is in fact at odds with her own profession. Furthermore, with her hate and vitriol and her sexualised view of the human body, this is hardly a character reference for a client in search of a practitioner offering care, kindness and respect. It makes sense why she is now trying to rebrand herself as an anti-cult activist – Any money in that we wonder…?
We suspect that her success as an anti-cult activist may ultimately parallel her absent success as an acupuncturist, as her understanding of cults and what a cult is appears to be as confused as her understanding of anatomy…
To the observer, it appears that she has lost all ethical standing, shown no maturity as a health practitioner, and now appears to be relinquishing any last scrap of professional competency by claiming the most absurd cases of sexual molestation possible based upon peculiar assertions of false anatomical references. In a most extraordinary leap from truth, common sense and reason (even by Esther’s standards) Esther Rockett claims to be able to see Serge Benhayon, not only sexually molesting a woman (or a child as she often asserts) within pictures from a Sacred Esoteric Healing training manual, but inflates the absurdity to outright ‘Cuckoo’ by declaring that Serge Benhayon is teaching students how to sexually molest others.
Esther Rockett is a grown woman, who has been an acupuncture practitioner for some 18 years, and has accused Serge Benhayon of training doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists, social workers, counsellors, teachers, acupuncturists, nutritionists, naturopaths and many more, all in the art of sexual molestation in the workshops and courses he has presented for over 14 years!!!
We, the FACTS team, are somewhat speechless as to the foolishness of this position – could you really mislead such a large number of qualified professionals to engage in inappropriate touching when each of them would have a profound understanding of the quality and nature of appropriate touch and professional boundaries?
It appears that Esther Rockett considers that the general public are gullible idiots who will swallow her vitriolic rubbish.
In order to canvass support in her ‘bring Universal Medicine down’ game and establish herself a business in anti-cult activism, Esther Rockett has garnered the most sexually emotive terms possible to create moral panic when describing the hand positions studied within the Sacred Esoteric Healing Training Manual.
In her peculiar and misguided application of anatomy to the healing manuals, Esther Rockett claims that Serge Benhayon is teaching hundreds of people per course, many whom are health professionals, to touch a woman’s vulva, anus and breasts. However, when the pictures are considered in detail, there is ABSOLUTELY no truth to any such claims and the pictures simply do not represent what Esther Rockett alleges. In reality, her peculiar claims expose an immature view of the human body as well as an unprofessional approach towards, and a misunderstanding of, sexual abuse.
As a starting point, as Naren Duffy points out,
‘Many many other healing techniques require partial to full states of undress; Sacred Esoteric Healing techniques do not. The training I did in holistic massage 10 years ago required that the client be completely nude for certain massage techniques, this is not uncommon in massage training and a student is instructed on how to do this professionally and respectfully. Even in Esoteric Massage where the client is largely clothed and the bare back is worked on, the training was very, very respectful, much more so than the massage training I have participated in previously. During the Esoteric Massage training, Serge Benhayon made a specific point to tell the class to not EVER make the techniques about sex or sexualise the modality. This is not a glossed over point for legal requirements it is part of the technique as no healing can take place if the body is sexualised in any way what-so-ever.’
There is no mistaking where a vulva or anus is; we assume this is something most people learn at some point in their development and there is absolutely NO mistaking where a vulva or anus is when you are trained in anatomy and physiology.
Esther Rockett is a trained acupuncturist and it is impossible to train as an acupuncturist, a profession that requires accurate and detailed understanding of the anatomy of the body, especially surface anatomy, and not know correctly where an anus or vulva are anatomically located. Esther Rockett knows to exact detail where a woman’s vulva and anus is; there is no possible way that she could not.
Her experience and training as an acupuncturist should provide her with this insight and her convenient leap away from any anatomical reality and professional understanding exposes the lengths she has gone to in her malicious obsession with bringing Universal Medicine down.
Esther Rockett says this represents the hand on the anus:
Esther Rockett says this represents the hand on the vulva:
Esther Rockett says this is a hand on a breast:
Esther Rockett, acupuncturist of some 18 years claims that photos shown within a Sacred Esoteric Healing training manual show techniques that teach students to molest their clients. She uses sexualised language to claim sexual abuse in an attempt to bring disrepute to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. The ridiculous claims that Esther Rockett is willing to put her name to when looked at with any discernment are baseless and only serve to place further question on her own professional competency. Esther Rockett’s competency for locating anatomy seems to take the shape of a blindfolded game of pin the tail on the donkey.
Let’s put Esther Rockett’s extremely immature games into context
The pictures Esther Rockett claims to prove sexual molestation and the teaching of sexual molestation are diagrammatic pictures of healing modality techniques taken from a training manual used as a reference within Sacred Esoteric Healing training courses. Normal attendances for these courses are between 100-200 students including, as mentioned above, experienced health care workers and medical professionals. While attending these courses students are fully clothed as all Sacred Esoteric Healing sessions are performed over fully clothed persons. None of these highly trained, highly respected, and extremely successful health professionals EVER have had a problem with the Sacred Esoteric Healing techniques or of the training conducted by Serge Benhayon.
According to Esther Rockett, highly respected and sought after medical specialists, GP’s, and complementary medicine practitioners have attended Universal Medicine training courses and been taught to be sexual molesters – Don’t you think that they might have been aware of this? –– or perhaps, given the time that has lapsed, if this were the case, there would be a multitude of legal cases and law enforcement would have cracked down on each and every one of them?
Most professionals who attend Universal Medicine courses are struck by the care and professionalism in addition to the precise and detailed care to ensure no abuse ever occurs in the healing room, sexual or otherwise.
As Andrew Mooney reflects:
‘As a fully qualified and registered Physiotherapist in Australia and the UK, I am familiar with many professional codes of conduct and comply with these diligently as I feel they are essential to offering true health care, dignity, respect and protection to vulnerable people who are in pain and in need of support.
These codes of conduct include areas dealing with professional boundaries, not abusing the therapist-client relationship and gaining full consent for treatment. These codes rightly exist to protect members of the public from unprofessional, unscrupulous and unsafe practitioners.
To suggest that Universal Medicine encourages practitioners to exploit their position of power or transgress professional boundaries by allowing inappropriate sexual conduct is frankly ridiculous. From day one of any training with Universal Medicine, the very first thing that is presented and emphasised repeatedly throughout the training is the importance of integrity and responsibility of the practitioner. That everything done, said or even thought either heals or harms. It was the first organisation that I have come across in 17 years of practice that proposed the impact of intention or emotional state of the practitioner on clients.
Universal Medicine actually places more emphasis on professional responsibility and integrity than I have experienced in my own conventional medical training and has expanded and raised the bar of what we should expect from a practitioner in terms of integrity by not only presenting that the practitioner should show the upmost care and respect DURING the treatment session but also includes how the practitioner lives OUTSIDE of work in their private lives.’
Throughout Esther Rockett’s last 2 years of cyber-bullying, originally under the guise of her false identities, Darkly Venus, Pranic Princess and references to herself as Nobody’s bitch, and now as Esther Rockett anti-cult activist, and health-care activist, she has revealed a disturbing ability to be able to sexualise everyone and everything. Her statements are telling, apparently agreeing with her anonymous commentator, who suggested that:
‘One does not have to be medically trained to see that in the ’13 to 18 years’ photo unqualified Serge is touching the girl/woman’s (erect?) nipple with his index finger.’
Now we do not know who ‘anonymous’ is – many of Esther’s fellow bloggers are herself (replying to herself) under various pseudonyms or Lance Martin under various pseudonyms, joined occasionally by unintelligent, often self-interested offerings by Ira McLure (again under various pseudonyms) – Esther Rockett responded to the above comment, obviously agreeing and suggesting that her fictional account of Serge Benhayon training health professionals how to molest their clients should be a matter for regulation and should be prosecuted as ‘indecent assault’.
This recent assertion that the hand is poised next to an ‘erect nipple’ is a particularly bizarre allegation. Trying to find evidence of wrongdoing where there is none has obviously begun to take its toll on the bloggers as they attempt more extreme fabrications that appears to justify Esther Rockett’s ridiculous assertions. The hand is poised above the breast – the actual position instructs for the hand to be held so it never makes contact with the breast – However, this has not stopped Esther Rockett’s lurid assertion that this is ‘indecent assault’.
Sexualised references are repeated many times throughout Esther Rockett’s blogs and the comments from ‘anonymous’, such as ‘Are Serge and his cult above requiring consent prior to performing foreplay?’ reflects the malicious tenor of what Esther Rockett has herself repeatedly presented about Serge Benhayon.
To publish such overly sexualised and insensitive comments, as Esther Rockett has done repeatedly on her website, highlights an immaturity as a practitioner and an astounding degree of disregard for the actual clients that she may be referring to, as well as a deliberate attack upon the many respected and highly trained health professionals who are associated with Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine.
Esther Rockett as an acupuncture practitioner has presumably worked with clients and touched their bodies within her practice and it is disturbing, to say the least, that she sexualises therapeutic touch in this way. Even if you were truly concerned about sexual misconduct taking place from a colleague or other health practitioner you would have the presence and maturity to approach it with dignity and grace for the client involved. You would not chance any further distress by denigrating them publicly on the Internet and you would definitely never use the material for your own gain to satisfy a personal vendetta.
We are not exactly sure which picture Esther Rockett’s commenter is referring to when she suggests an ‘index finger is touching an erect nipple’ – or if it was Esther herself who made this comment, or her fellow bloggers Lance and Ira, but it appears, given what seems to be their shared lax conceptions of anatomical locations, that whatever they see as an ‘erect nipple’ could be located anywhere.
If it is this picture below – then what on earth is the viewer looking at? What fevered and perverse mind came up with the repulsive suggestion?
What must be noted, although the angle of the picture does not make this clear, is that the woman pictured is of a petite frame and in this technique where this is the case, the hand may hover above the breast, but NEVER touches it. There is nothing indecent here, except the mission to find filth where there is none.
On another matter, given Esther Rockett has made much of her false and misguided suggestions that the woman in the picture is underage, what we can assure Esther Rockett (and her readers whom she has so egregiously misled) is that neither woman pictured is under 18. In fact, in the picture directly above, the woman at the time was 30 years old and in the other series of photos Esther Rockett has relied upon, the woman as seen below, is 19 years old.
Perhaps Esther Rockett can finally let her nasty and false suggestions of abuse of children and exploitation go as she relied on these pictures to assert this? But then – perhaps not. Even when Esther Rockett knew the woman in the picture was not Natalie, she persisted in insisting that it was, spreading her lies to government bodies and online.
What we can assure Esther Rockett is that these pictures do not show, as her malicious anonymous commenter alleges, someone being molested. For the blogger to even imagine an erect nipple and for Esther Rockett to accept this post (she goes on to refer to it being ‘indecent assault’ and ‘perverted’) reveals a troubling insight into the inner workings of Esther’s mind and appears as a mark of professional immaturity.
In yet another one of her nasty commentaries, strongly pointing to professional immaturity, Esther Rockett attacks the celebratory song by Michael Benhayon and the accompanying video ‘The Woman I am’, taking screenshots of the video of Natalie Benhayon dancing, accusing Natalie Benhayon of ‘DIY Esoteric Breast Massage’ and that she ‘can’t stop reconnecting to her breasts’ – Esther Rockett’s commentary only illustrating her own apparently confused and bizarre relationship with her own female anatomy and a level of immaturity more suited to a high school student.
As any observer can see, Natalie Benhayon’s hands are well above her breasts:
(Screenshots taken from Esther Rockett’s nasty sexualised commentary on one of her blog sites – 12/8/2014)
It does signal yet another of Esther Rockett’s peculiar understandings of anatomy – most people would not describe these pictures as a woman touching her own breasts – although curiously we have noticed that Esther Rockett does not appear to mind her own backdrop for Twitter of a statue most obviously resting a hand on the side of her own breast, as seen here:
Apparently hands on a breast are fine if you are touching yourself and you are made of stone.
What must be observed is that Esther Rockett’s objections to the manual pictures relate to a fully clothed adult woman who is consenting to having non-invasive touch applied which is in no way in contact with the breast at all.
The hand is held above the breast – indeed the manuals explain this very precisely as do the training instructions and the below is an excerpt directly taken from the training manual that Esther Rockett insists as proof of sexual molestation –
Esther Rockett’s sleazy and inappropriate comments about Natalie Benhayon and also the Universal Medicine training manuals appear to reflect her own, or perhaps the source of much of her malignant information – Lance Martin’s own inability to see beyond a sexualised and pernicious viewpoint.
Her obsession with examining the manual photos to see if she can make even more lude suggestions hit a new low with the suggestions of her anonymous blogger of fingers near ‘erect nipples’, that her own lurid presentations have encouraged, exposing a seemingly troubled mind with toxic thought processes. The photo below is taken from a medical journal and is a photo of a male physician’s hand on a woman’s breast and even though it is an actual picture of a hand on a woman’s breast (not a picture from Esther Rockett’s overly sexual and perverted imagination) there is nothing sleazy or sinister about this photo.
A woman has the right to seek any health related medical treatment she sees fit to and she also has every right to seek out esoteric healing training or healing sessions if she so chooses. To assume that thousands of participants in the Sacred Esoteric Healing courses offered in Australia and the UK did not realise that they were touching the breasts of their clients is ridiculous, as they were not. What is perhaps more clear is that these accusations seem to show how perverted Esther Rockett’s mental processes are.
What is to be noted, and easily confirmed by any medical practitioner, is that with the Sacred Esoteric Healing techniques that Esther Rockett voices her baseless concerns about, the practitioner’s left hand is placed along the sternum – not a sexual place and in fact a common place to be exposed in women’s clothing and to touch as part of the medical chest examination in women and men. It is not a sexual activity.
Interestingly, in acupuncture, Esther Rockett, assuming she has received classical training, would be well aware of the points used around the breasts in that modality. Here is a photo from an acupuncture training manual (freely available online) showing the location of acupuncture points along the sternum between a woman’s breasts or a man’s pecs.
This is the exact same area of the body that a Sacred Esoteric Healing practitioner will place their hand on in some of the techniques Esther Rockett has taken issue with. In Sacred Esoteric Healing, this is done respectfully and in consideration for a client’s modesty, with clients being clothed at all times and in no way whatsoever are the breasts or breast tissue touched (or exposed).
It is extraordinary that Esther Rockett can sexualise the Sacred Esoteric Healing technique when she herself is an acupuncturist and it would be assumed should be less ignorant and more mature when it comes to women’s bodies.
It would be unheard of for a practitioner of acupuncture to have gone through all of their training and not ever needled points on a client’s sternum. As an acupuncturist of 18 plus years, and a self-proclaimed specialist in women’s health, we can only presume that Esther Rockett has needled these exact acupuncture points many times.
In certain acupuncture techniques the breasts themselves are needled or massaged to help resolve infection such as mastitis in postnatal women. Here is an example of two such acupuncture points YingChuang (ST 16) and RuGen (ST 18), which are acupuncture points that are needled to help in conditions of mastitis.
This is touching and needling directly onto the breast tissue, and Esther Rockett would be aware of the fact that many people in her own profession as acupuncturists directly needle the breasts. She herself may have done so.
For Esther Rockett to take issue with a photo of a clothed woman demonstrating a Sacred Esoteric Healing technique involving her sternum (not breast or nipple) and her abdomen shows nothing but her ill intent towards Universal Medicine and her preparedness to go to absurd lengths, including bringing her own reputation and that of herself as an acupuncturist into disrepute and damaging the reputation of her acupuncture profession by publishing her immature views and sexualised approach to the human body.
Furthermore, using her pseudonym Darkly Venus, Esther Rockett writes:
The lower abdomen is not the ‘genitals’, Esther. By over sexualising a woman’s body and using the word genitals to describe a woman’s lower abdomen or inguinal region (the groin or lower lateral region of the abdomen) reflects poorly on Esther Rockett’s ability as a practitioner to be appropriate and respectful with clients.
Rebecca Poole, who has extensive training in Acupuncture and has studied it at Masters level, comments:
‘As someone who has studied and trained extensively in acupuncture as well as lectured musculo-skeletal anatomy and surface anatomy for acupuncturists I know full well what is acceptable and not when it comes to the human body. I find it absurd that someone who has studied anatomy and physiology and trained in acupuncture would in their right mind have issue with the hand positions of these techniques shown in a Sacred Esoteric Healing training manual. I find it most disturbing that a practitioner of 18 plus years in acupuncture would have such a sexually orientated view of the body. One of the first barriers that many students need to break down when they are beginning training in any modality or profession that requires you to work with people and more specifically with the human body is an over sexualised relationship with the human body. Esther Rockett is apparently a classic case of someone who has not matured in their view of the human body and therefore has the compulsion to sexualise everyone and everything. ‘
The picture below is a Sacred Esoteric Healing technique that engages the same areas of the body as some acupuncture techniques. In applying the techniques of Sacred Esoteric Healing the client is always clothed and the technique is performed over the top of clothing.
As an Acupuncturist Esther Rockett knows full well that these are common acupuncture points and that in this photo, the right hand is on Qichong (ST 30) and left hand on Zigong (Ren 19). This makes Esther Rockett’s allegation of mass teaching of sexual molestation even more sinister as she herself as an 18 plus years experienced acupuncturist would be well aware of the common use of these points.
If these are the absurd measures that Esther Rockett is willing to take, even at the expense of publicly displaying her own professional incompetency, we can only draw the conclusion that she has abandoned her acupuncture profession and has taken up a fulltime pursuit of her cyber-bullying career and is now completely obsessed, to her own detriment, towards bringing down Universal Medicine and most importantly winning favour with her mentor Lance Martin.
Rebecca Poole comments:
‘As a former registered and practising acupuncturist specialising in Women’s health I can categorically say that many acupuncturists use the point Qichong (ST 30) especially for the treatment of painful periods. As an acupuncturist you often needle areas of the body that can be sensitive in nature. As a practitioner of Acupuncture you deal with partially naked bodies and many acupuncture points are located extremely close to sexual organs. For example, to needle the point Qichong you have to expose the pubic hair area just above and lateral to the pubic bone. This is a far more invasive technique for the client to experience when compared to the deep femaleness technique practiced in Sacred Esoteric Healing. I have studied and worked with many leading acupuncturist in Australia and none of them would have a problem with the point Qichong being needled and not one of them would have a problem with a technique being applied to the same anatomical region of a fully clothed person. Most, if not all acupuncturists would be appalled at Esther Rockett’s antics and embarrassed to have her and her insanely ridiculous comments and over-sexualised view of the body littered throughout the internet. In my opinion, Esther Rockett’s conduct would make her a disgrace to the acupuncture profession.’
As an acupuncturist Esther Rockett will have encountered many photos of human anatomy and would have seen many photos of acupuncture techniques and point locations. Such things are not new to her or anyone in medical or health professions. Here is an example of graphic photos used in acupuncture point location training (these are freely available from online training manuals).
We doubt very much that Esther Rockett has contacted the publisher of these photos espousing that their website teaches sexual molestation!
Although most acupuncturists will never needle the point HuiYin (Ren 1), needling this point is not unheard of and it is displayed in all acupuncture point location textbooks whether photographically or pictorially for students to be aware of and study. As seen in this photo, the acupuncture point HuiYin is located in the middle of the perineum, the area between the anus and sexual organs of a man or woman.
This acupuncture picture actually goes close to depicting someone actually touching an anus whereas the Sacred Esoteric Healing Manuals do not, THE HAND IS ON THE SACRUM (BONE) in the manual, which leads to an inevitable question – What is it that causes such offence in the below picture Esther Rockett, that you claim it to be a picture of someone touching the anus?
Do you really consider this a sustainable accusation Esther Rockett?
It does beg the question – are you willing to use anything to justify your false accusations of sexual abuse?
Now consider this from an acupuncture online training manual:
The acupuncture point ChangQiang (Du 1) is located midway between the tip of the coccyx and anus. It is rarely needled in practice but is an understood and discussed acupuncture point. This depicts a hand very close to the anus and perhaps touching it in contrast to the hand in the picture from the Esoteric Healing Manual, which is not even close… the hand on the Esoteric Healing training manual is on the sacrum, yes, the bony centre where there are four to five rudimentary vertebrae forming the coccyx as the sacrum’s extension.
Very clearly, the hand in the esoteric training manual is in an entirely different place to that suggested by Esther Rockett. In fact if you look at this picture below from an Acupuncture training manual you will see that the point YaoShu (Du 2) is located at the bottom of the sacrum in the sacral hiatus, which is the exact area of the body as pictured in the Sacred Esoteric healing training manual over a clothed body.
This point is a regularly used acupuncture point for the treatment of sacral or coccyx pain as well as haemorrhoids. Of note in acupuncture, a practitioner needs to expose this area of a client’s body to needle the point YaoShu. This can be done extremely respectfully and to the best of your ability with the least amount of discomfort for the client, however this does not change the fact that this is a FAR more invasive technique than the equivalent Sacred Esoteric Healing technique and it is a technique that is part of Esther Rockett’s own acupuncture profession. What is the big deal Esther??
It is extremely immature when a supposedly professionally trained person engages in over sexualising the human body in any way whatsoever and it appears to be an extremely cold and calculating misuse of information on Esther Rockett’s part in order to carry out her aims of trying to ruin Serge Benhayon’s professional standing and business to apply sexualised commentary to innocuous photos from a training manual.
In Sacred Esoteric Healing you do NOT ever touch a woman’s vulva and Esther Rockett’s immaturity abounds with a seeming infatuation with sexualising women’s bodies and her application of this obsession to the Sacred Esoteric Healing techniques reflects very poorly on her.
The correct description for the anatomical location of the right hand’s positions seen in the photo above is the inguinal crease (the skin fold between your leg and hip on the front of your body), level with the pubic bone, as this picture shows:
The quality of any physiological examination or application of any technique can only be determined by the nature of the ailment being treated, the intention behind the touch and having full and informed consent from the client.
Alex Braun, Heilpraktiker, is a highly qualified practitioner, a trained and accredited Osteopath who is also a respected trainer and educator in his field in Germany, he observes:
‘Esther Rockett’s accusations that touching areas of the body like the lower abdomen, pubic bone, sacrum or sacro-iliac-joints would be inappropriate and or abusive show a deep misunderstanding of what sexual abuse actually is and a lack of medicinal knowledge and expertise in regard to treating the whole body as required due to numerous conditions.
In osteopathy or chiropractice it is most common and necessary to treat the pubic symphysis e.g. in women after childbirth or people with pelvic obliquity. Also the ligaments of the bladder and uterus or cases of groin strain need to be treated by applying hand positions close and around the pubic bone.
Sacrum and sacro-iliac-joints are areas that are affected in more than 50% of all clients and hence need re-adjusting by using hand positions on and around the sacrum without being inappropriate in any way. Furthermore, there are various techniques treating ligaments and muscles attached to the coccyx, insertions of the thigh muscles or the pelvic floor that are applied close to anus, vagina or scrotum without being sexual or abusive at all.
In any case, the client is informed about why and how a technique is applied, asked for his/her consent and checked in with during the application to assure that he/she feels safe, comfortable and in no way imposed upon.
Inappropriate or abusive touch is not defined by an area of the body being touched as such, but by the intention and energy of the person touching. When there is no sexual energy, thought, need or intention in the practitioner there is also no sexual abuse or obtrusion. If abusive behaviour was defined by touch as such or by touching specific areas of the body no physician would be able to exam or treat his patients e.g. gynaecologists and proctologist would all be rapists, and the podiatrist would be called a fetishist.’
- Esther Rockett’s vile and malicious suggestions of inappropriate touching of the vulva, anus and breasts are clearly not supported by the photos that she presents from the healing manuals.
- Esther Rockett’s accusations of Universal Medicine promoting abuse of sexual abuse survivors have no substance and it is to be noted that she has never brought forward anyone to back her claims, in fact, to the contrary, there are many, many women who have come forward to share the enormous support and healing they have received from Universal Medicine practitioners, including Serge Benhayon.
- Esther Rockett is apparently unable to observe the manual pictures that she has selectively and purposefully chosen from the hundreds of photos within four manuals, with any maturity or objectivity and appears to have abandoned any professional understanding of anatomy that a properly trained acupuncturist should have.
We ask: What would cause or drive someone to forsake 18 years of training and experience to concoct such lies and deliberate false interpretations?
To drive home a point based on lies, false fabrications and distorted truths simply exposes the fact that: not only is there no wrong-doing whatsoever, the accuser and complainant is in full knowledge of the fact.
