Dr. Ken grew up on the South Side of Chicago as one of 12 children. His mother was a nurse and his father was an embalmer when he was born. Later his dad sold reference books to Universities as his career.
He skipped 8th grade and entered the seminary to study for the priesthood at the age of 12. He lived the monastic life for 3 years till his senior year of high school. He lived away from home for those 3 years.
"I learned a lot in the seminary. Our average class size was only 6 students and our teachers were all priests. Many of them had PhD's and had been trained in Paris and Rome. They traveled all over the world and had a real world view.
Most of our teachers had been to China and other parts of Asia. The emphasis was on spirituality, studies and sports. But I knew by the time I finished my Junior year I didn't have a priestly vocation. I had seen a beautiful girl at a basketball game one day and intuitively knew the celibacy thing just wasn't right...not right for me anyway" Grossman said.
Dr. Ken graduated from high school at age 16 and volunteered for the United States Air Force just 2 days after his seventeenth birthday. He was discharged as Staff Sergeant with a wife, a baby and almost 3 years of college credits by the time he was 21.
Years before he was involved in the profession of hypnotherapy, Dr. Ken started and built businesses. He employed many young men and women who served in the armed forces. Because the Vietnam war was in full swing at that time many of the men and women he hired had served in Vietnam.
He felt that one of the most challenging, yet rewarding aspects of his position as head of his growing organization was counseling his employees. Many employees opened up to him about their personal problems. He knew if his employees did better in their personal lives they would also do better on the job so he did all he could to listen and help but so often he felt unqualified to assist. He knew he needed more training.
So he returned to college to take courses in the behavioral sciences, especially psychology, to help him understand human nature. In one course he discovered the tremendous value of hypnosis and was hooked on its benefits.
Because of his passion for hypnotism he later sold his businesses...by this time he had 7 companies...to his employees.
He completed his education and devoted full time to the profession of hypnotherapy. He has now been a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist for over 30 years.
He has hypnotized hundreds of thousand people in the United States and around the world. He has written and recorded many top selling personal growth and development programs.
He’s been listed in “Marquis Who’s Who in the World” for his achievements. His undergraduate work was done at the University of Chicago, Eastern Michigan University and the University of Nebraska at Omaha and he received his doctorate in Clinical Hypnotherapy from the American Institute of Hypnotherapy. He has studied Lifestyle Medicine at the Harvard University Medical School and has earned the Certificate In Plant-
He studied hypnotism with the leading teachers both in the United States and in the United Kingdom. He trained in London at the UK Academy of Therapeutic Arts and Sciences. He received his International Certified Instructor Certificate from the National Guild of Hypnotists.

He believes in living life to the fullest and his wanderlust has taken him all over the world.
During one exploration he had the opportunity to spend several months living amongst the Kuna Indians, the last indigenous people of the Caribbean who inhabit the San Blas Islands of Panama. While there he was one of the few outsiders to ever attend a Kuna puberty ritual ceremony as the guest of a Kuna chief.
He was privileged to be able to visit with many of the Kuna shaman throughout the San Blas Islands. They allowed him to study their primitive healing techniques first hand. What an amazing experience!
