Alexander was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. His great-grandfather was a hypnotist and was invited several times to perform his hypnotism show for the Russian czar and the royal family. His son Nachum Hertzberg, Alexander’s grandfather, also was a show hypnotist. He used to perform in Russia, Ukraine, Poland and Germany.

When Alexander turned 13, his grandfather decided that he was old enough to learn about hypnotism. At 16, an important incident shifted Alexander’s interest from show hypnotism to therapeutic hypnosis. A family friend was suffering intense pain after surgery. Alexander accompanied his grandfather on a visit to this friend. At the hospital, Nachum hypnotized the man and alleviated his pain. Alexander was fascinated by the power of hypnosis therapy to reduce or to relieve pain.

Soon after this experience, Alexander had his own opportunity to test therapeutic hypnosis. A friend twisted his ankle exiting a bus that resulted in a severely swollen ankle. A physician who examined the friend’s ankle said it would take a few weeks for swelling to subside and completely heal. The friend, a soccer player on his school’s team, turned to Alexander to see if hypnosis therapy could help expedite the healing process. After only one session that involved a deep trance, Alexander’s friend reported that swelling had subsided and he was able to walk on his foot a day later. Alexander soon received numerous requests from fellow students asking to be hypnotized for better test taking and sport performance results.

Alexander continues to have fantastic results with his clients who are looking for improve their health, complexion, self-esteem, confidence, test performance, stress management, fear and anxiety levels.
