Apparently, roving bands of hypnotists were a big issue in the '20s. The entry reads in part, "It shall be unlawful for any person to display on the streets or other public places ... any person in a hypnotic or pretend hypnotic sleep, ... or in any condition in any way simulating death, under the control or pretend control of any person claiming to exercise a hypnotic, psychic, mesmeric or supernatural power."

And just to make sure no one slipped through the cracks, it was also illegal to allow yourself to be hypnotized.
