NOTE TO HYPNOTIST: THE FOLLOWING HYPNOTIC INDUCTION UTILIZES ALL THREE OF THE LEARNING MODES. THE CLIENT WILL BE RESPONDING THROUGH HEARING, SEEING, AND FEELINGS.
BEGIN WITH THE CLIENT SITTING IN A COMFORTABLE CHAIR, AND PROCEED IN THE FOLLOWING MANNER.
Hypnotist: Would you like to experience the state of hypnosis? After a yes response, have the client extend his or tier arm to you as though you were going to be shaking hands.
Take the clients hand with your right hand while making sure the clients arm is straight.
I would like you to look at me for just a moment. As you focus your eyes on me, and listen to my voice, I would like you to allow things to take place.
Slowly begin raising, and lowering, the clients arm. The up and down movement of the arm should be about three inches each way.
As I raise and lower your arm, I wonder if you have noticed yet that there is a drowsy, heavy feeling beginning to occur in and around your eyes.
Each time I raise your arm upward, that heavy feeling in those eyes will keep becoming stronger.
As the eyes begin to close down, it becomes increasingly more desirable to allow them to remain closed.
They are closing down all the way now. Let it happen. Want it to happen. Feel it happening now.
Make special note to when the eyes begin to blink or start to close. This will be a signal to the hypnotist to reinforce that feeling by raising the arm higher into the air.
The client will quickly associate the raising of the arm with closing of the eyes.

Hypnosis is a capital instrument for relaxation and alleviating stress. It helps calm down both the brain and body, giving a useful rest. All the same it can be rather costly to hire a clinical hypnotherapist, and we might not always want one around when we would like to destress.
