A doctor and university lecturer who advocates for a controversial "spiritual healing" group touting unproven treatments including "esoteric breast massage" has been given a scathing reprimand by medical authorities.

The respiratory physician Samuel Tae-Kyu Kim failed to disclose his involvement in Universal Medicine when inappropriately referring a patient to other devotees of the group, including its founder, a former bankrupt tennis coach with no medical qualifications.

Kim, 46, who practises at a premises owned by the group at Lismore and a private medical centre in Brisbane, told the professional standards committee of the Medical Council of New South Wales that he first suspected the patient's complaint was part of a "conspiracy" to discredit Universal Medicine as a cult.
