a hypnotist in the Chanhassen Civic Theatre production of "Web of
Murder". This interest in the art of hypnosis and the power
of the mind lead him to a position as Executive Assistant to Dr.
Michael Dean. Nelson attributes is mastery of hypnosis to Dr.
Dean, "...one of the world's foremost hypnotists and
entertainers" who used hypnosis as the stage to teach the secrets

with motivational giants such as Dr. Sanford I. Berman, Dr. Robert
Schuler, Earl Nitengale, Dr. Dennis Wately, Charlie
"Tremendous" Jones, Judge Ziglar, Charlie Plum, Art Linkletter
and Olympic Champion Bob Richards.
In 1984 he graduated from The
American Institute of Hypnotherapy in Santa Ana, California.
Nelson believed hypnosis could be used as a powerful healing tool in
behavioral disorders, which lead him to Carlsbad, California, where he
was appointed Director of Individual Development Center, an outpatient
clinic specializing in alcoholism and other addictive disorders.
He also helped patients overcome smoking addictions, eating disorders,
and day to day phobias. Stress related disorders, victims of abuse
and attention deficit disorders were also treated at the hypnosis
center. Nelson values his accomplishments during this time and
attributes much of his stage intuition success to this experience.
After 6 years, his dreams
took him back to school to study stage hypnosis under Dr. Sanford I
Berman, Dr. Al Krasner, Jerry Valley, Tommy Vee, Ormand McGill,
"Dean of Hypnosis" and Reike Masters, Chuck Mignosa and Serena
Lumiere, to emerge as a Certified Master Stage Hypnotist. The
results were sold out performances throughout Southern California, Las
Vegas and Nashville, Tennessee. His ability to combine the
fascination of hypnosis and entertainment has also created a demand for
his shows on cruise lines as well as corporate functions. Through
his many performances, he has shared the microphone and stage with Dionne
Warwick, Merle Haggard and many of the Grand Old Opry stars.

than ever fulfilling bookings across the country. He has forged
his dreams into a new concept in entertainment. "HYPNOSIS IN
CONCERT", is the ultimate variety show, using hypnosis to entice
the audience members to become the true stars of the show, accomplishing
feats that were only fantasy until they joined Nelson on the

schools and corporate clients around the nation. He manages to do
this while tending to an independent record label he co-owns, as well as
