When inducing hypnosis, it can be effective to give the client cues that something different is happening. When they move to the “relaxation chair,” and the lights are dimmed, they know its time to go into a trance. Below are some examples.

  • Change the environment (lighting/seating)
  • Change your voice tone (switch to hypnotic voice)
  • Match the timing of your words to the client’s exhale (pacing)
