Hypnotic Thoughts: Deepening Hypnosis

Paul Ramsay and Dr. Mani Saint-Victor take you to a deeper level of the subconscious mind in this week’s simple hypnosis walkthrough.  As a followup to last week’s hypnotic induction video where we took you on a micro-hypnosis experience we discuss several types of deepeners including Elman’s technique of doubling as discussed in Hypnotherapy.  We explore ways of testing the depth or level of suggestibility including  the Aron’s scale and the Stanford Scale.

Arons’ scale is probably the easiest scale to use for quickly assessing a subject’s depth.  We have provided an infographic representing the scale below.
