Hampstead TV psychotherapist hypnotises women’s breasts bigger
A Hampstead psychotherapist says that women can think their breasts bigger, using his new hypnotherapy method.
Felix Economakis, a therapist who has appeared on television using his hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques, is trialling a new hypnotherapy that he says can increase the size of women’s breasts.
While studies of the link between brain activity and breast size have been conducted in the past, Mr Economakis’ therapy is the first of its kind.
So far Mr Economakis, who has a practice in Finchley Road, Swiss Cottage, has tested Hypnogrowth, which is a form of hypnotherapy to increase the breast sizes of 17 women.
Fourteen were tested in a workshop group format and three were given the therapy on an individual basis.
Four of the 14 women in the group session reported an increase in the size of their breasts.
All of the women who have taken individual sessions have reported an increase in size.

Two have gone up two cup sizes and one has gone up one cup size, which is the goal she wanted to achieve from the therapy.
They vary in age from women in their 20s to women in their 40s.
Mr Economakis believes that unwanted small breasts are the result of “psychosomatic inhibitions”.
He was initially inspired by his wife to create the therapy.
“My wife has very small breasts compared with the rest of her family and I wondered why,” said Mr Economakis.
“I think this is probably a result of her putting the brakes on during growth, for various reasons. The knowledge I’ve used in other therapies I’ve applied here which is something I’ve never seen done before.
“I’ve applied my skills in releasing subconscious inhibitions, or psychosomatic inhibitions. Then I do suggestions for release of the growth hormone.”
Initially Mr Economakis, who has appeared on BBC television series Freaky Eaters and The Panic Room as the resident therapist, tested the therapy in groups.
Because the group therapy was not as successful as he had hoped, he now offers individual sessions or sessions in pairs.
Student Vanessa Rollins, 20, is one of the women who has trialled the therapy individually.
Ms Rollins’ breasts increased by two cup sizes after her second individual hypnosis session, a couple of months after her first. “After about six weeks, I was like, hang on, there is a noticeable difference. I lost weight around my waist and it seemed to transfer to my breasts” said Ms Rollins, who went from a DD cup to an F cup.
She recommends the treatment to others who may be dissatisfied with the size of their breasts above surgery.
“Especially after all the scandal with breast implants, I think this is something that is so simple, it is worth trying,” she said. “You might not even increase three cup sizes through surgery. Surgery is expensive and can be life threatening. Why no just have a go?”
Mr Economakis is still refining the therapy, having recently tested it on two more women, and is looking for participants for future free trials.
“In the future I want to see what can be done with this type of therapy,” he said. “I hope to push forward with this research to extend to other parts of the body.
“Clinical hypnosis could be a viable alternative to people who don’t want to face the knife. It’s worth trying first before committing to something as drastic as surgery.”
