Hypnosis counselor arrested for sexual assault after 'giving patients prostate exams during hypnotherapy sessions'
A HYPNOTIST has been arrested for giving patients illegal prostate exams during hypnotherapy sessions, officials said.
Robert Bruckner, 55, was charged with sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and practicing medicine without a license, WLNY reported.
The New Jersey hypnotist, who owns Major Mindset Hypnosis Counseling, is not a licensed doctor but subjected clients to prostate exams during hypnotherapy sessions, prosecutors claim.
The company’s website claims Brucker “practices specialized medical hypnosis including hypno-surgery for real and psycho-somatic conditions.”
Bruckner, a board-certified “Master Hypnotist,” was busted after some of his clients reported the illegal prostate exams to Fairfield Police, nj.com reported.
“Medical and clinical hypnosis helps patients overcome negative, nervous, or anxious feelings in their subconscious and trains people to use their mind to help drive meaningful change in their lives,” the company’s website reads.
The Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit is seeking more information and can be reached at 973-753-1130.
