Marc Carlin, The NYC Hypnotist, refutes the story as total rubbish. And the fact that the police and the media took her version as credible, reveals that perhaps the alleged victim was the real hypnotist!
Mr. Carlin, the author of the book, Sheila Granger's Virtual Gastric Band Workbook, The Solution To The Worldwide Obesity Epidemic, states that, "Both the police and the journalists reporting the story should know better. The description in the newspapers of what happened to this victim is the story of a very common con game. And it's unfortunate that the media has chosen to mischaracterize the extremely beneficial tool of hypnosis in this way."
Hypnosis is used as an adjunct in new medical studies that prove how effective this mental training tool can be. Recent studies show that in chronic conditions like, IBS, and Fibromyalgia, hypnotism can have a lasting positive impact on the health of the patient. The Wall Street Journal reported recently that two studies from Sweden found that one hour
a week of hypnotherapy for 12 weeks eased symptoms of irritable-bowel syndrome in 40% of patients (compared with 12% in a control group) and that the positive effects can last as long as seven years.
"The real story is that a defenseless woman fell prey to a band of criminals who are forcing older members of the Chinese community to hand over their money under the implied threat of violence" explains Mr Carlin.
