National Guild of Hypnotists Celebrates 65 Year Milestone

MERRIMACK, NH--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2015) - When more than a thousand professional consulting hypnotists convene this summer for learning, fellowship and networking at the 28th Annual National Guild of Hypnotists Convention and Educational Conference, they will be celebrating the organization's 65-year anniversary. For six-and-a-half decades, NGH ( has worked to establish recognition of hypnosis as a separate and distinct profession in the United States and around the world. Using safe, proven and respected techniques, professional consulting hypnotists help people deal with life's everyday challenges, including weight loss, smoking cessation, pain management and a host of other applications.

Founding member and President Dr. Dwight Damon, who has been honored as "The Father of Consulting Hypnotism as a Separate and Distinct Profession," often quotes the statement that professional consulting hypnotism is a "brand new profession that is thousands of years old."

Dr. Damon said, "We believe each year's National Guild of Hypnotists Convention surpasses those of previous years. But this year -- on our organization's sixty-fifth anniversary -- we are striving to deliver a powerful idea exchange, inspiring all who are part of this event with information, motivation, vibrancy and joy that will carry them to new heights of accomplishment professionally and personally in the year ahead."

The National Guild of Hypnotists Convention provides a platform for teaching and sharing groundbreaking professional developments, advanced hypnotic techniques and legislative and legal updates. This year's three-day convention event will be hosted in Marlborough, MA, and will offer over 300 one-, two-, and three-hour seminars and workshops, as well as eight days of pre- and post-convention coursework. Each year, the convention attracts attendees from NGH's global membership of hypnotism professionals, along with many interested non-members. Attendees include trained, certified hypnotists, doctors, dentists and other health professionals, educators, coaches and a diversified group of individuals interested in building or expanding their career opportunities.

Founded in Boston in 1950, and now based in Merrimack, NH, the National Guild of Hypnotists is widely accepted as the oldest, largest and most respected professional association of hypnotists in the world. Scheduled for August 7-9, the theme of this year's convention is, "A Tradition of Excellence." The NGH Convention is open to interested adults, 18 years of age and older, who have pre-registered for the event.
