In fact, in Korean UBF and Chicago UBF, even after all the criticism and mocking of former members who went to charismatic revival meetings in the 90s, it is not unusual for members and even leaders to visit faith healers (especially in Korea). And the use of Korean "medicines" and healing "techniques" which have their root in shamanism is also common in Chicago UBF.
