FAQ: What About Stage Hypnosis Shows?

It is important to see the words ’stage’ and ’show’ here.

Stage shows are based on two concepts:

  1. The cooperation principal: The individuals on the stage are all volunteers, wanting to be on the stage.
  2. The willingness (and eagerness to) follow suggestions: These individuals are asked if they are willing to follow the hypnotist’s suggestions. Only the ones that have the desire, personality and are disposed to follow such suggestions of acting out on the stage are selected. Others are discretely sent back to their seats.
