Ukrainian-born Russian psychotherapist, hypnotist and a controversial psychic healer who enjoyed great popularity in the Soviet Union.
Kashpirovsky graduated from the Vinnitskiy Medical Institute in 1962. After this, he worked for 25 years as a psychiatrist in a psychiatric hospital.
He became famous in 1989 after several of his sessions with patients were shown on Soviet television. Among other things, he was shown to remove the pain of two patients who remained conscious during abdominal surgery by addressing them by teleconferencing. The first session was shown on October 9, 1989 on the Central Channel of the USSR.
In 1993 he was chosen to be a Deputy of the Russian Duma.
Sy Scholfield quotes Anthony Anderson, "Saint Or Satan?: The Life and Times of Russia's New Rasputin" (Glastonbury: Gothic Image Publications, 1996), p. 2: "He was born on August 11, 1939, at four o'clock in the morning in a small Ukrainian village called Stavnitsa, [in] the Khmelnitsky oblast (region). . . . She insisted that her son's birth certificate should indicate as his place of birth not the village of Stavnitsa but the town of Proskurov (renamed Khmelnitsky in 1954), where she was living with her husband."
