John Barboza became interested in hypnosis when he was thirteen. The first book he purchased for one dollar, which he still has in his library today is, Hypnotism Revealed by Melvin Powers. After unsuccessful attempts to hypnotize his childhood friends, his interest in hypnosis faded but returned in 2010. After seeing the movie, The Fourth Kind, where hypnotherapy was used throughout the film, his desire to learn hypnosis increased with a vengeance. He accumulated a multitude of books and hypnotized hundreds of people. In 2013 he studied under Master Hypnotist, Jeffrey Stephens, and six months later he became a certified consulting hypnotist and member of the National Guild of Hypnotists. John is a board certified hypnotist, stage hypnotist, certified instructor, and owner of his hypnotism practice, Life Enriching Hypnosis, in New Bedford, Massachusetts. He shares his passion for hypnosis on his Hypnotism 101 YouTube channel and local cable TV network.
