Hypnosis or hypnotherapy has 2 main key areas. Firstly we have stage hypnosis and secondly we have hypnotherapy as a form of therapy. Hypnotherapy for transformation is often called clinical hypnosis or or clinical hypnotherapy and is set in a clinical environment.
So now we know there are two types what can it do and how does it work.
Firstly for entertainment what it can do is create a very entertaining fun atmosphere by as it seems placing fun suggestions into their minds so they act them out as if they are true.
Suggestions like when u eat a onion it will taste like an apple.
So how does this work you maybe thinking?
Firstly people who want to participate are invited up to the stage.
Quite often a simple suggestibility test is given and the most suggestible people are invited up first. This is so that we can get in with the show fast.
The hypnotist focuses the attention of the subjects and then gets them to close their eyes.with their eyes closed the hypnotist deepens the level of hypnotic trance.
This is usually done by giving suggestions that their body is relaxing.
This is most commonly followed up with an elman technique a suggestion that every time they close their eyes they will go into a deeper state of hypnosis.
The hypnotist will typically get them to do this many times to deepen the level of trance.
The hypnotist will want them in a deep trance state where they easily and effortlessly accept fun suggestions that will entertain the audience.
In a deep trance the subjects will not do anything that their identity wouldn’t usually do but will happily do what they would do if they had a few drinks
After the entrainment has completed the suggestion to remove all suggestions should always be given.
It is always fun evening and entertaining but many negative beliefs and misunderstandings are created about this wonderful therapy because of the lack of understandings of this powerful tool for change.
Hypnosis is fun but can also be used far more powerful to change patterns , emotions feelings, habits and behaviors and help people get their dreams
