Pennsylvania Dutch magical doctors, known as hexenmeisters or braucher are often, but not always, male. The magical system itself is called Pow-Wows or Braucherei. The system combines Christian prayers with traditional European folk magic and Medieval Catholic charms.

The Heathen tradition Urglaawe is a very similar tradition absent the Christian elements and also using the same magical system; braucherei.
