An Iowa chiropractor is out of business after authorities busted him for performing exorcisms and treating patients in exchange for sex.

Charles Manuel surrendered his license but could apply to get it back in 10 years as part of a settlement reached with the Iowa Board of Chiropractors reached in March.

The board had accused the southern Iowa-based chiropractor of "unethical conduct…engaging in practice harmful or detrimental to the public," and "practicing outside the scope of the profession" in the settlement obtained on April 15 by The Des Moines Register.

The case stunned residents in the town of Lamoni, population 2,300, where Manuel kept his office, according to KCCI.

A woman who answered the phone at the office where Manuel used to work told The Des Moines Register that he hadn't worked there in "quite a while."
