Local stage  hypnotist brings out volunteers creative sides

This is an article originally appeared in the Reno Gazette Journal

By Siobhan McAndrew

Dominic Gentile acted out giving birth on stage in front of 200 laughing business associates. He also imitated Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Chinese dictator and President George Bush.

"I remember everything I did but was in a really relaxed, almost sleeping state," said Gentile of Reno, who agreed to be hypnotized on stage during a Builders Association of Northern Nevada dinner held at John Ascuaga's Nugget in Sparks.

He was one of 15 volunteers who were hypnotized by Chris Cady, a Reno stage hypnotist.
" I guess its something I wouldn't normally do (when) not under hypnosis, like the giving birth part but it was funny. I knew what I was doing but seemed more willing to do it." said Gentile, "but I can do a good Arnold accent under or not under."

Cady, who has hypnotized thousands, performs his family friendly show for high schools, colleges, conventions, business groups and private parties. He is one of two stage hypnotists performing in Northern Nevada.

Life of fascination

"When I  was a kid, I read a book on it and it was intriguing." said Cady, who has been hypnotizing people for  10 years.

He said that after being in a mall that was hit by an airplane in Concord California in 1986 he went to a hypnotist to deal with the stress of helping with the rescue efforts.
"I realized it was something that still interested me," said Cady.

"Then I went to a show and saw a stage hypnotist do it and he just didn't have an entertaining personality. It was like he was doing a lecture, a long stuffy lecture."

Cady said he knew  being a stage hypnotist and having an entertaining act would do well.
He went to a hypnotist school then worked with a hypno-therapist who had 25 years experience.

Finally , he developed an act. He performs his show several nights a week.

Cady usually can hypnotize a group in less then 10 minutes. He then taps on hypnotized participants and induces them to act out different personalities or characters raging from Elvis to aliens. Those who are not hypnotized, he excuses form the stage.

He will vary the show depending on the group.  "Usually you can tie in something to the group you are performing for and make each   performance original,"

Finding volunteers for the act is easy.

Cady said the best people for hypnotism are creative types who can block out distractions.

"When you are hypnotized, you are in a sleep-like state where you are just using the imagination side of your brain," he said, He said more analytical types such as engineers, are harder to hypnotize.

Cady also does private sessions to help people quit smoking, lose weight or improve sports performance.

Brooke Mills, who was  also hypnotized at the builders association event was eager to try it out for fun.

"The things people told me I did were things I could never do in front of 100 people," said Brooke, who acted out being an alien while hypnotized,. She somehow even knew an alien language while hypnotized.

"I mean ( I can't believe I was) dancing and singing, I have stage fright," she said. " I  get nervous about anything, but remembering back, it was like no one was there, I remember  seeing everyone, but nothing mattered, I was so relaxed."

Here is another interesting hypnosis  article about a hypnosis show that I had running in Reno for 2 years

Hypnotist zones in on Pioneer Underground
Show will be on indefinite run at theater

Less than two months after magicians Mark Kalin and Jinger Leigh left the Magic Underground theater, the venue is springing back to life with a new name and new headline act.

Now dubbed Pioneer Underground, the small theater at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts will reopen tonight with the first of many performances by hypnotist Chris Cady. The Spanish Springs-based performer is partnering with Jeff Leep, owner of Leep Entertainment, to provide regular programming at the theater, all of it anchored by his show, "Get Hypnotized!"

Currently, Cady plans to perform Fridays through Sundays each week, To get things started, he'll deliver eight shows through the (dates removed as event has passed), including three this weekend for the benefit of Toys for Tots.

Is he worried about attracting an audience night after night in the same venue? Not a bit.

"Every show is completely different," Cady said. "I have over 200 routines that I draw from, and in the show there's maybe 20 different routines done. It changes constantly based on who the audience is, who the volunteers are, their ages, what kind of vibe I'm getting from them. There's a lot of improv involved as well."

Cady said he starts his performances by explaining the basics of hypnosis. Then he takes volunteers from the audience and performs a mass hypnosis.

"We do a real hypnotic induction," he said. "There's nothing planned, there's nothing scripted. Sometimes people think that there are stooges involved, and that's not the case at all. It's completely real."
Cady said he doesn't have trouble getting volunteers once he eases the initial concerns of audience members.

"The number-one fears are revealing secrets, loss of control and fear of exiting," he said. "They're not going to lose control, I'm not going to ask them anything personal and they can't get stuck in hypnosis. That's impossible. Once they understand that and they see I've got a friendly face, I don't look spooky, they'll go, 'OK, I feel comfortable now.' Then people will come up."
Although Cady doesn't ask hypnotized subjects personal questions, he does ask them to do funny things that the audience can enjoy.

"Men will give birth," he said. "I'll make somebody Britney Spears. I'll make somebody Elvis. "" I'll make them sing a song about their favorite food. I make somebody the Governator, and they'll imitate Arnold Schwarzenegger."

Cady said volunteers not only star in the show, they enjoy the experience.

"They have a great time," he said. "Most people are not super-creative and they're not super-outgoing. Or, maybe they are but they just don't get a chance to get up on stage and perform "" Now is their opportunity to explore this creative side of their brain that's called the subconscious mind. And the feeling of hypnosis is profoundly relaxing."

Cady said he first tried hypnosis while struggling with terrible memories of a tragedy he witnessed. In 1985, when he was 17, he was working in a record store at Sun Valley Mall in Concord, Calif., and a small plane crashed into the building, killing seven people.

"I ended up with post-traumatic stress, and in order to get rid of my post-traumatic stress I ended up using hypnosis," he said. "I went to the library and I read about it. Then, I went to Tower Books and they had some hypnosis tapes. I bought them and things started working for me because I learned it was all about refocusing your mind."

After years of self-training, Cady decided to get more serious in 2000 when he went to school and was certified as a clinical hypnotherapist. He also trained with a private teacher in Moscow, and he now makes his living entertaining and working with private hypnotherapy clients.

"Therapy is not full-time," he said. "I work mostly with people who are interested in sports. I work with bowlers who are serious amateurs and pros, and I have a hypnosis-for-bowling product that helps them with focus and confidence."

Cady said he also has 53 hypnosis CDS designed to help people with everything from weight loss to stress reduction. All will be available for sale at his shows.

When Cady isn't performing at (venue removed), the venue will be available to other organizations who want to rent it. And Cady and Leep plan on booking other performers into the venue on occasion. But that's later. First, they're trying to get the word out that "Get Hypnotized!" is going to be a regular feature.
"I'm very excited about it," Cady said. "We think we've got something very different."

About The Hypnosis Show

Get Hypnotized is an all ages comedy hypnosis show featuring volunteers from the audience. It's a non-stop roller coaster ride of laughs as Master Hypnotist Chris Cady takes you on a mind-blowing tour of "fast-trance hypnosis."  He combines comedy, music, drama & the power of the mind to bring you a unique entertainment experience where audience volunteers are the stars of the show. (Don't worry, he won't turn you into a chicken…)

Kellene Stockwell
Channel 2 News
Hypnotist Chris Cady doesn't put people to sleep for a living. "Just allow yourself to drift on down...relaxing every nerve, muscle, every fiber in your body."

It's more like extreme relaxation, a state of heightened imagination. "When I snap my fingers you'll be playing the piano with great animation."

This musical interlude is just one example he can manipulate volunteers who've fallen into a trance at his family-friendly show called ‘Get Hypnotized' at (hypnosis show venue removed).

Some people walk into the theater believing hypnosis is fake and they leave unconvinced. "Other times at the end of the show they'll tell me out in the lobby, ‘I was completely skeptical but because my spouse went up there, now I know it's real because they would never do that.'"

Like Cheri Rich, who before hypnosis only recalled owning her own house cleaning business, but her professional changed with just a snap of Chris' fingers. "I'm Cheri Rich. Kristen Remington is on vacation...."

Chris got into hypnosis 20 years ago and is dedicated to helping the community in which he entertains. Most recently he started a campaign to feed our area's hungry children. "When I found that a third of the children in our area are hungry everyday I just thought, ‘I'm so blessed to have this theater. I can do something to help out.'"

So he's inviting you to ‘Get Hypnotized' later this month

This hilarious comedy  hypnosis show has been performed all over the world and it makes for hilarious interactive comedy entertainment and is perfect  entertainment for company Christmas and holiday parties.

Skeptical? Here's How Hypnosis  Works

Every time I perform a hypnosis show for a Silicon Valley Technology type company,  they are always a ton of fun.  I also get a lot of interesting questions that I don't get  in other parts of the country. Its also really interesting for me to notice how the sales and marketing people have very different questions and comments than the Engineers.  I love these questions and it always makes me think.... So

If you are a really smart and curious
Silicon Valley Engineer Type who has a compelling need to  "figure it all out"  or you are  just interested in how hypnosis works, I wrote this next part just for you.

I'm going to take this very scientific topic of hypnosis and make it very easy for you to understand so that you can make a wise decision without being bored to death with medical mumbo jumbo.

Understanding Hypnosis
Your brain is a giant computer and your body is like a robot. All your body does is follow the instructions given to it by the computer.
Get it?

As a hypnotist I give your computer ( your brain)  instructions and
Your computer (your brain) tells your robot (your body  to do something and your body responds.
Your brain is divided into 2 parts. You've got your conscious mind and your sub conscious mind. Your conscious mind is the part that you are using right now as you are reading each of these words and thinking about these words and analyzing them. Then there's your subconscious mind. This is the more powerful part of your mind. This is the part that works like a giant hard drive of a computer and it stores information. It stores speech,  music, sounds, thoughts, feelings, memories, pictures, experiences,  words and Its also responsible for your imagination and your dreams. Its the part of your brain that makes you feel certain emotions when you hear music, see a picture or say certain words. Its the part of your brain that drives all of your creativity and your actions and in the case of  a hypnosis show, its the   part of your brain that you are using while hypnotized on stage.

Are you with me so far?

Through  a special  hypnotic relaxation process which I do very quickly  on stage,  I quickly bypass your conscious mind and  tap into your subconscious mind.
Hypnotizing engineers, doctors and other scientist types can frequently take a little bit longer than everyone else because they  naturally  want to stay in their conscious mind and analyze this process instead of just "let it happen"  however once they "let go"  and let their subconscious mind take over  the results are  always incredible hypnosis.

This is  because your subconscious mind 
believes everything that I say as fact no matter how outlandish the hypnotic suggestion.

Its also the part of your brain that allows you to,  “get wild and have fun on stage”

The subconscious mind  is also that part of the mind that allows great performers, comedians, speakers or singers or musicians to improvise masterfully in a performance because their  subconscious mind knows what notes to play automatically.

Your subconscious mind is also responsible for all of your bodily functions such as breathing and blinking, body motions and it also controls your thoughts and FEELINGS.

Your subconscious mind also access feelings of confidence or feelings of nervousness all depending on what kind of "program" is being run. This is why great  stage performers, perform  with such confidence, warmth and feeling. They are profoundly relaxed, confident and are performing “in the moment”  from deep within their subconscious mind. Basically they are hypnotized. 
The same thing happens during one of my hypnosis shows.

This is why after  one of my hypnosis shows when I interview  the  volunteers they will describe their experience  being hypnotized in the the same  way that my professional entertainers  do.   The reason is that  when a person is in hypnosis all of the suggestions that are given by the hypnotist  are  REAL in the mind of the  hypnotized person.

This is  one of the  many reasons why a hypnotist  show is so much darned fun at a party.

Hypnotist Promises Memorable Valentine’s Day Comedy Hypnosis Show
Edited from an article in the Best Bets Section of The Reno Gazette Journal February 2015
Men giving birth or strut  their stuff on stage as dancers. Women suddenly rocking out on the guitar, swinging their arms like Pete Townshend of The Who.
Anything can happen at one of Chris Cady’s comedy hypnosis shows and that could be particularly true of the one scheduled at the JA Nugget. The performance is themed as adult – only.
Cady, who had a family friendly comedy hypnosis show for two years at the Pioneer Underground, stresses that this one is for ages 18 and older.
He also had a hypnosis show with a one year run at a South Lake Tahoe Casino.
“Valentine’s Day is a Day of Love,” he said, “Children are conceived on Valentine’s Day.  We are going to get wild without being filthy.”
It’s hard to say what will happen at Cady’s show as he has about 200 different routines in his head to pull from. What ends up occurring depends in great part upon the volunteers.
During the show, many of the volunteers become deeply relaxed as Cady uses fast –trance hypnosis, which makes them amenable to humorous suggestions and interactions.
“The show is really improvised,” he said, I don’t really know what I’m going to do before I have my volunteers up there.”
The upside for those anxious about being on stage is that no one has to volunteer this is because there usually are plenty of creative types willing to participate.
In fact, creative people often are the best volunteers, simply  because hypnosis utilizes the creative part of the brain, according to Cady.
After the show. Cady often talks with the volunteers and finds out what audience members thought of the show. He also sells specialty CD’s that focus on helping people through a number of issues ranging from better sleep to releasing anxiety and stress.
Cady, who has performed at John Ascuaga’s Nugget for private events and company parties in its banquet rooms, will be performing in the Celebrity Showroom.
The Nugget’s signature entertainment venue sits nearly 700 people.
I’m really excited about it,” he said.
“It’s going to be a tremendous amount of fun.
Anyone interested in entering a hypnotic trance on Valentine’s Day may want to buy his or her tickets in advance, however.
Seats have traditionally gone quickly for Cady’s Feb 14 shows including the ones he did at the Horizon Casino in South Lake Tahoe and last year at Stockmen’s Hotel and Casino in Elko
That Valentine’s Day  show is really a big night.
When he is not entertaining audiences, Cady helps clients improve their  lives through hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapists have many different specialties ranging from past life regressions to hypno birthing for woman and help with smoking cessation and weight loss.
Cady said he is trained in all of these disciplines but outside of entertainment he prefers focusing on helping athletes  improve their mental game.
He runs a business called All Star Peak Performance Center and a video on his website  shows just how powerful the mind can be. It features a 325 lb lineman from the University of Nevada suddenly unable to pick up a 1 ounce trophy only after being told under hypnosis that it weighed 10,000 lbs.
Cady also works with performers, entertainers professional musicians and other creative types to transform the anxiety they experience before a show into excitement.
Cady has been interested in hypnosis since his youth. This interest further grew in 1986 after a small plane crashed into the mall where he worked in Concord California leaving him with  anxiety attacks and nightmares.
Hypnosis helped him to overcome many of these fears, and give him a good reference point many years later for working with veterans suffering from post-traumatic  stress disorder.
At other times his work simply entails helping clients find things, sometimes valuable items. He recalls once hypnotizing a client who in his home had misplaced a bag containing $20,000 in cash.
Under hypnosis, the client revealed that he had put the money in an air conditioning window unit but that he didn’t feel worthy of the money.
Cady explained this may be the reason why the persons conscious mind blocked the location of the money.
“Everything you do in your whole life is in your subconscious mind.” He said
He said the first comedy hypnosis show that he ever performed was an incredible success and that’s because  he spent his preparation time envisioning such an outcome.
I actually used a lot of hypnosis and visualization  on myself.” He said, “I threw myself into believing that I had already performed a thousand hypnotist shows.”
-End story-

You may have seen a lot of hypnosis being featured on television lately.  "Americas Got Talent" featured a hypnotist putting Howie Mandell into hypnosis.  Another hypnotist was featured on the "Today Show" demonstrating hypnosis with Al Roker, Natalie Morales and Ellie Kemper. Regardless of how you  feel about what you saw on tv, the best way to experience hypnosis is by attending a LIVE show.
