Chattanooga police have raided a hypnosis clinic that officials say was a front for prostitution.

The Associated Press reports two women inside Hypnosis for Power were arrested as was one man found there Wednesday afternoon.

Police charged 22-year-old Kimberly Chacon with prostitution and 25-year-old Suzanna Gregory with promoting prostitution. Police records also show a male client was charged with prostitution.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported 45-year-old Nelson Hampton owns Hypnosis for Power as well as the Vaudeville Cafe.

Hampton told the newspaper there was "absolutely nothing illegal going on" at the hypnosis clinic, which he acknowledged he owns.
