Which California Celebrities use Hypnosis?

Article by Tony Sokol

          California is known as the one of the most progressive states in America. She opened her golden gates to enterprising explorers with the gold rush of 1849, nourished early filmmakers who ventured west to Hollywood, and helped the youth culture of the 1960s launch an endless summer of love with the Monterey Pop Festival of 1967. The state also has a reputation as a haven for new age practitioners eager to practice alternative health methods. But California has not always had an open mind when it comes to hypnosis. They passed a law on January 1, 2003 ruling that hypnotherapy doesn’t qualify for state licensing and, unlicensed healing arts therapists to make clients to sign a disclosure form. That hasn’t diminished the practice’s mesmerizing appeal, especially when it comes to celebrity clientele.

          But Tinseltown has long been enthralled by the shining and flickering lights of the promises of hypnotherapy. Esteemed actor Bela Lugosi, who himself played the mesmerizing title character in Dracula and the hypnotic Professor Mors in Richard Eichberg’s 1920 German silent film Hypnose,  was hypnotized by technical advisor Manley P. Hall to make his death scene more realistic in Arthur Lubin’s 1940 film Black Friday.

          Salma Hayek had to be hypnotized to deal with her ophidiophobia, a deep-rooted fear of snakes, before she could dance with one in Robert Rodriguez’s 1996 vampire adventure film From Dusk Dawn, which was written by Quentin Tarantino.  Former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan also faced his fear of snakes with the use of hypnosis, allowing NLP developer Richard Bandler to put his subconscious fears to rest on Live! With Kelly and Michael. Howie Mandel, who was diagnosed with mysophobia, an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) resulting in a crippling fear of germs, was hypnotized into shaking hands with his co-stars on the May 26, 2015, broadcast of America’s Got Talent.

          Actress Olivia Munn sought hypnotherapy to deal with trichotillomania, an OCD disorder commonly known as compulsive hair-pulling. She found the treatment so effective, she used hypnotherapy sessions to inspire her to exercise in preparation of superheroine role in X-Men: Apocalypse.

          Saturday Night Live breakout comedian and perennial performer Bill Murray was hypnotized to get over his cat allergy long enough to shoot a scene in the film St. Vincent. The actor, who is best known for his turns in Stripes, Caddyshack, Groundhog Day and Zombieland, is reportedly a hypnosis enthusiast who keeps two hypnotherapists on call at all times.

          It’s only actors who turn to hypnosis for alternative treatments, and they don’t only do it for phobias or filming. Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian used hypnosis when she learned her second baby with Kanye West, Saint West, was moving into a breech position. Pop singer Katy Perry went to a hypnotherapist to get over her breakup with blues guitarist John Mayer.  The “Wide Awake” singer also reportedly used the hypnotherapy after her marriage to comedian Russell Brand ended in 2011, and tried hypnosis to quit smoking. Rapper Kid Cudi also went to a hypnotist when he had a hard time quitting cigarettes.

I was struggling with a self-esteem issue and did not even realize it until I underwent hypnotherapy in NYC with Elena Beloff. Because of her I have become a positive thinker and realize that I can do anything I put my mind to. The old me is gone and never to keep me down again. Thank you Elena for giving back my life.

It has been almost six months since my first NYC hypnotherapy session with Elena and almost that long since I stopped smoking. I could never have the control over my habit without her using the power of suggestion through hypnosis. I am so grateful.

If you are struggling with your weight I recommend the NYC weight loss hypnosis center of Elena Beloff. I tried dieting and exercise but it was my mind set that was blocking my success. Elena helped get me past my negativity and the weight has been coming off and staying off. I am so happy I found the best hypnotherapist in NYC.

I was initially terrified of seeing Elena! Not because of something that she did, but because the thought of someone in my head freaked me out. I actually did not show up for my first session because that fear was that intense. I sucked it up and made another appointment and Elena was so understanding about the situation. Elena put me at ease within seconds and she is extremely easy to open up to about the issues I have been having. We talked and within minutes devised a strategy to help me resolve the issues I have been having. After our first session I felt like a different person. I thought of it like a computer and my operating system was updated to the proper programing. I saw Elena a second time to reinforce this new programing. I will visit Elena further times throughout the years to keep me on this new path of mine because I want to not because I have to. I feel like I am seeing the world through new eyes. What once affected me negatively, no longer does. I feel totally comfortable in my own skin and for once feel like I am in control of my life. I have life goals that I now know are attainable. Before seeing Elena, I was stuck in a constant rotation of events in my life that I could not escape by myself. I was my own worst enemy, but now I can be my own hero. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you Elena!!

I had really amazing 2 sessions with Elena for performance anxiety. I'm a professional musician and needed to overcome the performance anxiety which I've been struggling over the past years as the stake is getting higher and higher. Not only her presence being warm and supportive, her voice being soothing and easy to get relaxed with, Elena has a deep insight for music/performance. Her intuition was right on. Her story telling was excellent. After her 1st session, I had an amazing week, playing gigs and recording. I was relaxed, calm and focused. If you struggle with performance anxiety, I highly recommend Elena Beloff. You won't regret it!

I wasn't sure what to expect from the experience or even the results but it was interesting and definitely has set me on the right path already, and it's only been just over a week! I went in to try and get assistance on one area of my life I wanted to get more disciplined in but actually got the benefit for 2 different things! What I call added value:) I've since referred another friend to Elena to help her with something else and she's also been impressed with the results so far! It just gives you that extra push for whatever you're set to do, or improve in your lifestyle. Would definitely recommend it for any sceptics out there. There is nothing to lose, apart from being pleasantly surprised with the outcome!
