Hypnotists Convention Anything But Sleepy

MERRIMACK, N.H. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you want to quit smoking or drop a few pounds, a hypnotist convention in Marlborough, Massachusetts, will do the tick-tock trick.

For three ‘daze’ beginning August 10th, more than 1,500 hypnotists from around the world will gather at the 20th Annual National Guild of Hypnotists Convention and Educational Conference. But these tick-tock docs are no crock.

Guild president Dr. Dwight Damon says, “Hypnotists are a distinct profession – we’re not an alternative to medicine and psychiatry, we’re complimentary.”

So while the convention will teach workshops on everything from hypnotizing the deaf to “hypno-birthing,” there are some everyday issues hypnotists can weigh in on too.

Dr. Damon says, “Hypnotists can help with weight management, smoking, and stress. It’s not a magic wand, but it helps.”

But to keep guests from dozing off, the convention also includes entertaining hypnosis performance.

As Dr. Damon, a former magician himself, says, “The hypnosis shows honor where we started out.”
