    Great article.
    My father, Shawn Mash, was trained by Dewey Dever’s.
    Dad is 88 and is still in practice as a hypnotherapist in Dallas, Texas.
    He always mentions Dewey to his new clients and speaks very highly of his expertise in Judo and hypnosis.

    It’s said Dewey Deavers taught over 10,000 people to swim, using hypnosis. I must have been 4 or 5 when he taught me to swim at the old Arsenal Boy’s Club. There was a group of 20 or so of us and just using his voice, he’d put us in a mild trance so we weren’t afraid of the water. When it was time to jump in, no one hesitated. I’m still not afraid of the water. With 4 boys 5 years apart, my Dad tried to learn hypnosis. However, we proved to be too much of a distraction for him. Thanks Dewey for teaching me how to swim. If there are any Deavers out there, I’m proud to have known Dewey.

    All glory to Mr. Deaver’s human hypnosis heroics, but I gotta add that anyone can hypnotize a chicken. I’ve done it myself.
