David Snyder’s been doing hypnosis and “energetics” since about the age of 15. He’s an 8th degree black belt in a martial art you’ve never heard of, that involves manipulating the acupuncture points and meridians of the human body. In other words, he can make your body do things it doesn’t want to. He’s also a licensed acupuncturist in the state of California, where he runs a clinic and treats illnesses caused by repressed emotion.
“As a licenses acupuncturist,” Dr. David Snyder says, “I spent $100,000 to learn all sorts of things about the human body that I never use. Why? Because I can treat most everything faster, easier, and permanently using the technologies I now teach in my programs and at my events. The people I work with are often in chronic pain, they have terminal illness, I do a lot of trauma work as well. And I have a hundred percent success rate with weight loss. But I get about one patient a year for that.”
“What else?” David continues. “I’ve been running meetups and practice groups for hypnosis and NLP since 2003, 2004. One of the most powerful things I’ve discovered over the years in working with physiological illness is that everything human beings do is in response to a feeling. A feeling they either want more of; a feeling they want less of; a feeling they’ve locked inside their body. And whether you think your feelings are because of something you’re seeing or something you’re hearing, it just doesn’t matter.”
“They all result in a body feeling. And that’s how we attack those feelings. That’s how we get ’em out of your body and out of your life and we change your beliefs and your memories forever. It starts with understanding where in your body those feelings are stored. Because if you can point to where you feel it, you can change it. And we show you how to do that.” David’s got all kinds of different courses and products and live trainings you can buy if you believe a word he’s saying. Personally, I don’t.
And I ran into other skeptics online as well. One person anonymously posted that NLP is a pseudoscience Snyder uses to rip people off to the tune of thousands of dollars to attend these silly seminars. Once he has you there, he’ll talk for hours without saying anything meaningful. But not everyone agrees. David has a good amount of testimonial videos from folks who believe in what he’s teaching. “David empowered me to influence myself and others in an exponentially and dramatically new way,” one woman said.
“And for that I’m insanely grateful,” she continued, clearly drunk on David’s Kool-Aid. “Now I have a vast network of people that we can all help each other and be there for each other and practice these skills on each other. Let’s see, I got my brain to shut the hell up for a change. That was a nice change of pace. Gosh, everything’s just been insanely valuable. I feel like I just got a bright brand new shiny toolbox of just the most insanely expensive tools that I can use in my life every day. And it only gets better from here.”
“I feel really lucky for finding David Snyder early in my hypnosis training,” another chick said. “He has such a gift for taking complex, seemingly difficult concepts and distilling them into simple action steps that allow you to make a massive difference in your own life and in the lives of your clients. And to do it quickly and effectively. Unlike other trainings where you might start to feel a little groggy and a little out of it after a while, David keeps you intrigued and engaged and interacting throughout his seminars. I highly recommend you attend one of his life-changing trainings. Maybe I’ll see you there.”
