X-Men Actress Olivia Munn Hypnotised to Exercise

Posted on


Actress Olivia Munn who is preparing for her role in the new X=Men file: Apocalypse has made no secret in the past of getting help to deal with her own issues. She spoke in the past about how she sought the help of a Hypnotherapist to help her overcome OCD and trichotillomania also known as hair pulling.

Now she has been speaking to the magazine Good Housekeeping and explained that her motivation to exercise needed a boost, so once again she sought some help. 

oliva munn interview about hypnosis

“One day I told him I didn’t work out, and he said, ‘What do you mean?’ I replied, ‘I don’t know. I just kind of don’t. I yo-yo.’ He said, ‘You have to! It’s good for your anxiety and depression.’ So during one of our sessions, he hypnotised me.

 I’m not exaggerating: That was on a Friday, and by Monday I was working out every day at 6 a.m. If I missed a session, I’d double up and do it the next day. Now I feel so much stronger. I remember running up the steps one day and thinking, This is strange. I could do this a hundred times and be totally OK.”

Sometimes, although we know that getting out and having more exercise is good for us we need a little help. The feeling that comes from exercise and the fitness that it brings can be wonderful, but if you cannot motivate yourself to start then it could well elude you. By getting some help with the motivation you can really look forward to enjoying your exercise and feeling all of the benefits that it brings to your mind and your body.

    Dear Mr Powlett I'm gutted that I don't live near your clinic! I've been reading various articles about Oliva Munn's amazing transformation from apathetic training to absolutely loving it! Something has happened to me in the last two years. I've lost all incentive to exercise and it's awful the way my mind is playing with me! Her transformation sounds as though it occurred after one session whereas the one hypnotist I have contacted in my area has said the following: "I can help you to build your motivation. It is essential that you're willing to follow my instructions and take responsibility for us to work together." This has immediately disheartened me as it sounds as though it's going to be a long slog! What are your thoughts on this please? I am sorry to be so cheeky asking you to reply to a question knowing I can't come to your clinic but I'm really clutching at straws at the moment, not knowing which way to turn. Thank you. Amanda......Hi Amanda I will email you so advice , regards, Mark
