By technicality (and those who truly do know hypnosis will understand this) they are already in a trance state when they get to the show, in the very least in an extremely suggestable state and ready to "go".

They had better be or you haven't done your marketing correctly. As to how long. As soon as their hands are locked or their eyes are glued shut. After that it is all about deepening and away we go.

Great Responses,

Paul,
You took the words right out of my mind.

Magical Pirate,
Indeed, I prefer that the attendees know a few weeks in advance that they will be witnessing a hypnosis show which enforces Pauls comment.

I'd like to ad that I do accept bookings as a suprise guest, But I must say that it makes all of the aforementioned theory basically useless.

Best,
Sebastian Black

John Ivan-Palmer, a midwest hypnotist, has a one-second induction I've seen him use succesfully for over 20 years.

It works great but for personal reasons I don't do it...used to use a nice relaxation induction until I got a hold of the EKG induction of Geoff Ronning's.

You can do an induction in one second...John's not the only one. It takes a special understanding of what you are doing and a couple large cahones but it can be done.

Glad to be your hero...

Many successfull hypnotists in the early thirtys and fortys use very effective rapid and shock inductions (only one name Hansen, and at least ormon where did you think he got his knowledge about the descripted inductions?), not because they were too good, but they have in difference to today hypnotists the balls to do it..

Are you doing Silver's on stage with numerous volunteers, or just one on one?
Thanks.

I gotta say speed inductions do me no real favors.

I don't usually use them because people tend to think "stooge".

I make NO claim they don't work, acutally just the opposite they work too well.

I have found people enjoy the process of induction from the audience. They are actually on the edge of their seats watching as they progressivly get more and more relaxed. It is a great part of the show.

Again please don't be angry with me it is only my opinion.

I have a tendency to agree with you. I believe the audience finds the process enjoying as well. Thanks for the feedback.

Danny--

I agree with you on this. Anytime I've gone for 'speed' it doesn't look right to the audience. I normally devide my inductions into 2 parts --visualized relaxtion then a count down. My total in duction is 4.5 minutes. Done in the 2 parts the audience only percieves the second part as the actual induction and therefore believes the indution to be about 2.5 minutes. Done this way, the audience gets to understand what the volunteers are going through.

Not saying it's perfect for everyone, but it keeps me working!
