He was convicted, lost his license and was sentenced to do some heavy jail time. It was his case that led to the tightening of the laws governing certification of hypnotists in the State of Texas. One of the reasons that I never went into stage hypnosis as a profession was that I felt it was important to become certified. I was given the runaround by the authorities, and decided that until the process became more streamlined, it wasn't worth the trouble. In Texas, the AMA and other groups have had a big row with hypnotists, anyway. The medics don't want hypnotists doing any weight control or smoking control without the benefit of a medical degree. In 1975, they closed down Gene DeJean's hypnosis practice for "regulating bodliy functions." Of course, this was clinical hypnosis, not stage hypnosis. And although Gene was for years primarily an entertainer, he never approved of hypnosis as stage entertainment. [/quote]
