What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is simply a focused state of mind. A person in hypnosis experiences a deep state of mental and physical relaxation.

Will I lose control?

Absolutely not! You will hear everything the hypnotist says and all sounds in the room. If there were a fire in the room you would stand up and walk out just like someone who wasn't hypnotized. The hypnotist can not force you to do something criminal or contrary to your moral judgment.

Can everyone be hypnotized?

Yes! All it takes is the desire to be hypnotized and your willingness to cooperate with the hypnotist. You can't be hypnotized against your will. If you come up on stage to prove that the hypnotist can't hypnotize you - you will win. You would be wasting your time and also taking the opportunity from someone who really did want to experience a deep relaxation.

How does a show work?

The hypnotist will give a brief introduction and then invites volunteers up on stage. The hypnotist will complete an induction to place the volunteers into hypnosis. And that's when the fun starts! The hypnotist will then give suggestions to the volunteers and the volunteers will perform various skits to the delight of the audience.

What happens if one of the volunteers doesn't go into hypnosis?

No big deal! It doesn't mean that the person can't be hypnotized. It simply means that on that particular occasion they were not able to concentrate to the necessary. It means that that for that particular show they would have a better time in the audience than up on stage.

Harold's performances are rated family appropriate!


What if I don't wake up?

It's never happened and it never will! The hypnotist will hypnotize you with the sound of his voice and he will bring you out the same way. A few minutes without the sound of the hypnotist voice and you would be fully awake or you would move into a natural sleep and wake in a few minutes.

Can hypnosis be used for things other than entertainment?

Yes! Many people have successfully stopped smoking, lost weight or reduced the effect of stress in their life. Hypnosis can be used for many theraputic purposes. Contact your local hypnotherapist for additional information. You can usually locate one in the Yellow Pages.

Is hypnosis safe?

Yes. Remember hypnosis is just a state of relaxation. There is no medical evidence that hypnosis will cause physical or psychological harm. Most people go in and out of hypnosis every day of week. A common example is driving right past your exit on the highway while your mind is occupied on something else.
