John Travolta claimed he helped a car-crash survivor who was suffering from pain from a broken ankle, by using a Scientology procedure called "an assist."
In an interview for a Scientology-based magazine, Travolta said, "People were standing around watching as I did them. You could actually see him confronting the pain and after a while he looked up at me and said, ‘I feel better,' so I said ‘Okay, end of assist.' He had gotten noticeably better and I was chomping at the bit for more."
A source at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Center explained that the religion's "assists" help the body's natural process of healing itself go at a more rapid pace.
