David Snyder stands out for a whole range of reasons. As well as being a world-renowned expert on hypnotism he has a wide range of qualifications and experience in health and wellness. Based on this extensive knowledge he’s developed a whole range of programs to help people overcome illness and disability, or to improve their abilities right across the spectrum.

Among his other achievements David has authored more than fifteen programs on healing, self-improvement, persuasion and influence. He’s also been personal trainer to a broad array of people – law enforcement, martial artists, entertainers and people in the hypnosis community. His skills are highly sought after, and after talking to him it’s easy to see why.

David studied acupuncture and Oriental medicine at the Southern California University of Health Sciences in Whittier. Later he trained in stage hypnosis, although he’s never been tempted to actually do a stage show. While he often uses traditional techniques as part of his programs he sees their real value as therapeutic, not entertainment.

His knowledge of hypnosis, traditional medicine and martial arts – he has Black Belts in four different styles – gives David a unique perspective on the power of the mind, and makes him someone I was very enthusiastic about bringing into the show.
