Hypnosis is simply a state of relaxed focus. It is a natural state. In fact, each of us enters such a state – sometimes called a trance state – at least twice a day: once when we are falling asleep, and once when we are waking up. That kind of fuzzy, timeless state between dreaming and awake is a trance state. When a nine-minute snooze-button seems to give you enough time to have an-hour long dream, that’s a trance state.
There are many other times that people enter a natural state of trance. Driving, watching TV, listening to music, working on a favorite hobby or activity in the “flow” or in the “zone” state. These are all “altered states of consciousness,” and all are various levels of trance. Trance is normal, natural and common.
No, it is impossible to get stuck in hypnosis. It’s the equivalent to saying someone was so relaxed that they hurt themselves.
Yes and no. Yes, you remain in control at all times. You will never do something against what you morally believe in. No for everything else. You simply have a big urge and desire to do what I suggest within your moral limits.
This depends on your level of trance. If you end up as the star of the show and make it all the way to the end, most times you will not remember or will only remember parts. After the show is over, I come to each and every volunteer to help them remember and with a little help, the entire show comes rushing back in an instant. Without help, the shows activities slowly creeps back into memory over the next 24 hours.
Anything can be dangerous if misused including driving, swimming and the occasional hippopotamus encounter. It is very important to make sure that the hypnotist you are working with is professionally trained. I would highly recommend not going on stage with any hypnotist who does not have a therapy background just to be sure. It is rare there would ever be an issue on stage but if there ever was, you would want a pro to deal with it.
Usually a good sign you’re in safe hands is that the hypnotist has at least $2,000,000 in liability insurance.
Anything and everything. Check, all credit cards, paypal,
email money transfer or even sheep. (no one has paid in sheep yet … but I am sure someone will eventually)
YES, I carry $2 million in performers liability insurance. Everything on my stage is insured so everyone can feel assured that just in case anything happens, everyone and everything is covered. My insurance covers my stage while I am on it and does not include venue insurance or if I am not performing. I highly recommend that you only deal with performers who are fully insured. Hypnosis is safe but that guy or gal whos had a few too many can easily trip and fall.
Everything. There aren’t too many events I haven’t had the pleasure of covering over the years. Everything from full theater performances, corporate functions, high schools, proms, fairs festivals …
I have done it all.

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
