Both my 20 yr. old son and I have chronic pain of different origins. I am an open minded person and actually do believe in alternative health care and have had some success with such care. I do use western medicine (regular doctors) have paid out thousands of dollars in medical bills each year to top specialists for their care. I was up in the middle of the night and saw a show called the "UNEX" Report. It is a show about "Unexplained" things, this one was about a man called "Dean Kraft" who is supposedly the worlds most documented "energy" healer who has supposedly taken his time to go to various medical institutions and have his capabilities "documented" (he can hold a test-tube" and change the cells inside) the list is endless.

There were people on the show who had fatal illness who testified he'd "saved" them. If you go onto his website he's supposedly worked for years, saving many people, even celebrities (I think on the UNEX show a celebrity said he'd worked miracles with her.) On his website was a phone number. I called it. (I am a desperate person.)  I have little to lose.  Most "healers" are very kind.  Dean's wife is the only person who works with him - Rochelle.  She is quite to the point, she states that she and Dean have lost "two homes" and he "gave away" his talents for years (quite possibly true.)

However, Dean now charges SO MUCH, I guess Rochelle must feel that OTHER PEOPLE must lose THEIR HOMES, in order to come see Dean!  She was abrupt, and to the point (no warm fuzzies) wanted to clarify right away whether or not we could travel to NY - then got down to the point, it would be $750 per session, and it would take multiple sessions over a weekend, bottom line, would cost $9,000 for a weekend, and ...of course would probably take 2-3 visits for Dean to "heal" and...well, he couldn't guarantee anything, but then (when I was gasping, and choking (because, double this X2 for me and my son, that is $18,000 for one weekend, not counting travel expenses, hotel, meals, etc. so round it to and even $20,000) - she did remind me -- I WAS working with the "best in the world. 

Hm, well.....alright.  I asked her if she didn't feel slightly bad about charging that much and if they didn't feel like they might make an exception occasionally for a few people, because at the rate they were charging, well -- only the very rich could afford them -- she said they had "given" away Dean's gift to "those" people for years, so NO, they did not feel "bad" at all.  Hm, well, I guess that is that!  Oh, and get this -- he "works" in a GROUP!  Yeah, (She says he only works on weekends because during the week he does "other stuff" ...I don't know...TV shows...she was vague.  But I think the UNEX report is just a re-run, so I don't know what other TV shows he is doing. Why work full-time when you can rip people off PT?  Think of it? 

You have a group of sick, out of work, already mostly poverty stricken (from medical bill) desperate people who will mortgaged their house and go to him, let's say there are 5 of them (she never did say what size group) each paying $9G for a weekend with him (9X5)- that is $45G in a weekend. I read on another "complaint" website he only works 2 weekends/ mo. At his rate, he is raking in over a million dollars/ yr working 4 days/mo.  Great money if you have no heart or soul.  I would never go to anyone like that.  It's ludicrous. 

There are hardly ANY complaints written about him.  He must have scrubbed the internet clean somehow.  The word definitely needs to get out.  People need to...start....talking..talking....talking.  He should NOT be able to get away with what he's doing.  It's sinister and evil.  He may have a gift( or not) but if he does, he can charge a fair rate.  The optimum word there is - fair. He's just being a rip-opp, cold hearted. Con Artist.  I hope no one gives him a dime. Ever.  Check out (((competitor's name redacted))).  He's Free.

Dean kraft = Huckster Extraordinaire

AUTHOR: JoseO - ()

Dean Kraft is a shrewd huckster who would like you to believe that he is the greatest energy healer on earth.

Most of his testimonmials are believed to be exagerations and/or total distortions of the truth. Mr. Kraft has made serious material omissions on his website. He fails to list all of the numerous cases where he charged tens of thousands of dollars and nothing happened. He never returns the money when his hocus pocus fails to prove any results whatsoever. If Mr. Kraft is so confident that he can cure ALS and other diseases then why is he afraid to post a notice that he will make a full refund if his efforts fail? 

Mr. Kraft preys on the ignorant, and on the fears of the hopeless. Somehow he has managed to stay below the 'radar' of State and Federal prosecutors.

In some social circles he is considered to be the 'Bernard Madoff' of psychic healers.

In my opinion Mr Kraft is no better or worse than a shaman who rolls some bones around on the floor.

Dean Kraft

AUTHOR: Michael - (United States of America)

I've had the actual experience of working with Rochelle and Dean Kraft. My journey led me to Dean in the  mid 1990s, I had seen Dean on a  TV show and bought his book soon after, tracking him down through his publisher, since he was not that well known back then. I spoke with Rochelle and explained my issues with constant pain due to severe discs problems in my neck and throughout my back. I was on morphine, lortab, you name it for pain. I was told way back then what his charges were and guess what,  they haven't changed in 20 years to my knowledge. Are they high, no more so than my Medical MD. I see him for 5 minutes and he charges me, my insurance company $250.  Every time I saw Dean, it was almost a full hour.  Until someone or the government pays for his services, he deserves to make a living for himself and his family.  Is he a fake, NO WAY. I've traveled the world and he is the only human that I've ever met that has the gift or energy that he possesses . The interesting thing about Dean is that he is actually looking actively for others with such gifts that are real. But he hasn't found them  when we last spoke.   When he is in a session with you, one actually feels the energy flowing through your body.  Once he place his fingers together and I actually heard loud pops and cracks of energy. I've asked him personally, where has this energy/power come from  and he humbly states I have no idea but from God. If anyone has read his book you know the story. Have seeing him for about six times, stretched over 6 months to a year, all of my pain decreased to the degree that I stopped taking pain meds.  I've referred patients to him that had breast cancer, and other types of cancers and in some cases their lives were prolonged years.  Did I end up having surgery 5 years down the road, yes, but I know his energy helped me so much.

I hear the frustration of the individual writing this response against Dean and not being able to afford the services of Dean Kraft.  I so wish that there was someone or some agency that reimbursed Dean Kraft for his services but so far that doesn't exist. I never have a bad experience with Rochelle or Dean. She protects him from everything that doesn't relate to what he does. I haven't spoke to them in years but they are very real and kind sincere professional  people.  But they too live in the real world and have to deal with the realities of making a living. I work in healthcare and I personally think that the government should be paying him some agreed upon salary to heal those stuck in hospitals and nursing homes. But Dean is just a human that was given and special gift for some reason, he doesn't know why.  My wish is totally unrealistic because number one, a healing session takes a lot out of him physically and personally, he doesn't know why but he told me feels so spent after a day of working with people, etc. So, why doesn't he use his special gift 7 days a week, he physically can't do it, why doesn't he just give it away free, well the last time I was in NYC, nothing was free, neither is it for Dean Kraft.

Over the years I've thought a lot about Dean Kraft and the special energy/power that I personally experienced over several years. I've got a couple college degrees, and I know what I experienced was something so special.  I think the day he ran out of the record store to help the woman laying in the street, something clicked on, there was something that we all carry maybe that lined up to go on, either is compassion, concern at the moment for this stranger, his passion to help her, his fear, his openness to give of himself. Something happened that day that changed him forever and opened up a special power, that I really think we all carry, but how to turn it on is the key. Maybe its as simple as showing true compassion for others, giving of ourselves, stepping out to help another. Clinically I look at what happened that day, the only thing I see that he did any different from any other day was stepping out to help with pure intentions and compassion.

Is he a fake, a con, fly by night thief, no he is none of those things. He is a human being with an extraordinary gift, that I have to say is not of this world as we know it. I'm now 65 years old and I've seen many so call healers since I was 5 years old both religious and not, but this individual is the only real deal that I've ever met in this world. 

The writer states one has to have so many sessions, etc.  You take what you can afford. If its one, take it and then come back when you can afford more. I had one friend that I referred and he would fly in from Texas, have a session and fly out that day.  Does all of that cost money, yes, get real. If he lived in your home town, it would only cost his fee but the reality is that he doesn't.

I believe if you can't find a way to get into see Dean, then its not meant to be my friend, but there is a plan and if you can't get into see him then that is not suppose to be  your journey.  An he would tell you the same thing.

Rebuttal to the Attack on Dean and Rochelle Kraft's Integrity

AUTHOR: Mike - (United States of America)

I am writing to rebut the uninformed, inflammatory and fraudulent statements made by a person attempting to impugn the integrity of Dean and Rochelle Kraft.  This complainant admits to not having actually experienced any treatments from Dean and yet that does not deter him/her from making false claims (that Dean heals in groupshe works on individuals in personal treatment sessions, works out of both New York and Beverly Hills and is a con man).  Frankly, since the complainant did not getripped off in any way, since he/she did not use the services of Dean, he/she does not have any standing to actually make a report to this website.  I believe the complaint has verifiable falsehoods and represents defamation.

In fact, I have been experiencing Deans treatments for about two and one half years.  I have experienced extraordinary wellness with no infections or even colds for over a year and three quarters despite having been diagnosed with a condition in which such good health would be anomalous especially during a period where I was exposed to an environment fraught with contagious illnesses.  I have also witnessed, with my own eyes, healings which would likely constitute miracles for conditions which medical science has no cure or reasonable likelihood of recovery.  I have seen these people during the course of their treatments, spoken to them and to members of their family.

Further, during the vetting process with Rochelle before my first appointment, Rochelle was professional in every way describing Deans healings, the cost and the hope for beneficial results based on real documented experience but the absence of any guarantee of outcome.  The complainant admits the substance of my experience by stating that Rochelle was to the
point.  In fact, Rochelle was accurate, pleasant and professional.  I suspect the complainant is misrepresenting his/her experience with Rochelle in much the same way that he/she misrepresented other statements in his/ hercomplaint. 

The complainant states that its sinister and evilCon Artist.  How can Dean, who has verifiably saved countless lives and alleviated suffering for so many (documented in testimonials, television documentaries, interviews, books, articles, and an NBC movie), be called these names by someone who has never met him or experienced his treatments? This complaint is a bad caricature of a theatrical review of a play in which the reviewer did not see the performance.  

To the complainants central thesis that his cost is unjustified, I say, by whose standard?   What is a life worth?   Is the complainant entitled to treatment at what he/she considers fair?  Should Dean be a slave to such small minded souls?  Is it possible that the healings come at a considerable toll to Deans own energetic resources and, therefore, limits the number of potential patients? Of course the complainant does not consider these possibilities, only that he/she deserves his/her treatments at a fair price.  That is, at a price that the complainant dictates as acceptable on his/her terms and conditions.  How nice. 

Really, this complaint would not be worthy of a response since it is mostly uninformed and false drivel were it not for the fact that those truly seeking help from Dean might see this complaint and not seek help that might truly be life saving.
