The Science and Art of Stage Hypnosis: Beyond the Spotlight and Mystique

October 26, 20233 min read

“Stage Hypnosis is the doorway for most people to the incredible realm of hypnotism” - Isaac Lomman

Introduction

Stage hypnosis has captivated audiences for generations, evoking awe, laughter, and sometimes even skepticism. While many people are familiar with the spectacle—volunteers becoming the stars of the show under the hypnotist's guidance—few understand the intricate blend of psychology, persuasion, and performance that goes into making a stage hypnosis act successful. In this article, we will delve deep into the science and art behind stage hypnosis, exploring how it captivates audiences and why it's more than just mere entertainment.

The Historical Perspective

Stage hypnosis has a rich history, tracing its roots back to the 18th-century practice of "mesmerism," founded by Franz Mesmer. Over time, the practice has evolved, incorporating new psychological insights and methods. Today, stage hypnotists entertain audiences worldwide, and while the dramatic elements have certainly been modernized, the core principles remain remarkably similar to those used hundreds of years ago.

Psychological Principles at Play

Rapport Building

One of the keys to successful hypnosis—on or off the stage—is building a strong rapport with participants. This involves gaining trust and setting a mood of receptiveness that enhances the hypnotic experience. A skilled stage hypnotist is often a master of reading people, enabling them to quickly build connections.

Suggestion and Imagination

Stage hypnosis heavily relies on the power of suggestion and the audience's collective imagination. The hypnotist provides instructions or "suggestions," guiding participants into engaging scenarios that elicit laughter, amazement, or introspection from the audience.

Compliance and Social Pressure

People under hypnosis are more susceptible to suggestions but are never under the hypnotist's "control" as commonly misunderstood. The phenomenon known as the "surrender to the social role" often plays a significant role, where participants comply because they understand the social setting and their role in the spectacle.

Ethics and Responsibility

As with any form of hypnosis, ethics play a critical role in stage hypnosis. Consent, respect for boundaries, and the well-being of volunteers are paramount. A responsible stage hypnotist always debriefs participants afterward, ensuring that the experience, while entertaining for the audience, is also safe and respectful for those on stage.

Beyond Entertainment: Educational and Therapeutic Value

While the primary purpose of stage hypnosis is entertainment, it also serves an educational role by demystifying hypnosis for the general public. Additionally, some performers incorporate elements of positive psychology or motivational speaking into their acts, subtly promoting concepts like self-efficacy and positive thinking.

The Future of Stage Hypnosis

As psychological research continues to evolve, so too will the art of stage hypnosis. With the advent of virtual reality and other technological advancements, future stage hypnotists may have tools at their disposal that take the art to new, unimaginable heights.

Stage hypnosis is a fascinating blend of art and science, captivating audiences while also educating them about the potential and limitations of the human mind. As it continues to evolve, it serves as a testament to the complex interplay between psychology, social dynamics, and individual experience, standing as both a form of entertainment and a subject worthy of scientific inquiry.

The mastery of stage hypnosis lies not just in the spectacle but in understanding the profound psychological principles that make it possible. This understanding allows for a performance that is not only entertaining but also rooted in the complexities of human behaviour and mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hypnosis?

It is the bypassing of the critical faculty of the mind and direct communication with the subconscious mind. It feels a lot like a deeply focussed day dream. Another name for it is Monoideism which is essentially having a singular focus.

What is Hypnosis Like?

Have you ever been in a room full of people, feeling as though you are taking part in the group but feeling detached from it?Have you ever had the experience of driving home while being preoccupied by something and suddenly realising that even though you have arrived safely at your destination, you can’t recall driving past familiar landmarks? It’s as if you were on automatic pilot.Have you ever been unsure whether not you did something or simply thought about doing it? For example, did you mail that letter or did you just think about mailing it?Have you ever been so absorbed in an activity that you were able to block out sounds or make them totally unimportant or not even hear them?Have you ever stared into space, thinking of nothing, and been unaware of the passage of time?Have you ever had the experience of remembering a past experience with such clarity and vitality that it was almost as if your were reliving it?Have you ever been able to shut out your surroundings by concentrating very hard on something else?Have you ever had the experience of reading a novel or watching a film and being so absorbed that you forgot about your surroundings, almost living the story?Have you ever been lulled into a dreamy state or put to sleep by a lecture or a concert, even though you were not tired?

What is a Clinical Hypnotherapist?

A Clinical Hypnotherapist is a specialist in hypnosis, who uses the healing state of hypnosis to work with problems or conditions that a client wishes to change.

Can Anyone Be Hypnotised?

Pretty much – some more easily than others. Like anything else in life, the more people practice self-hypnosis, the more easily they can slip into that wonderful relaxed state. The depth that people reach in hypnosis varies between individuals. It is not necessary to achieve a very deep level of hypnosis to bring about change to habits or conditions that are having a negative impact either mentally or physically.A common myth about hypnotisability is when a person says, “No one could hypnotise me" or "I’m too strong minded”. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. A person goes into hypnosis because they choose to. So strong-minded individuals are really good candidates for hypnosis provided they are committed to wanting it to work for them.

Would I Be Asked To Do Anything Against My Will?

This is one of the common misunderstandings associated with hypnosis. This is probably tied in with another misconception that the hypnotherapist has control over the client. This is not the case. People will not do or say anything under hypnosis that they would not do when not in hypnosis. Thanks to TV shows and stage hypnotists, there is a common misconception that you can be hypnotised against your will. It is not true. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.Research conducted at the University of NSW by Dr Amanda Barnier and reported inThe Sydney Morning Heraldon 2 February 1998, states that “Hypnotised people do not act like robots, nor are they powerless pawns of post-hypnotic suggestionsplanted.

In What Areas Can Hypnotherapy Be Used?

Hypnotherapy can help with smoking cessation, overeating, nail biting, bed wetting, insomnia, headaches, exam nerves, pain, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, bulimia, depression, mood swings, alcoholism, relationship problems, hostility, anger, resentments, worry, guilt, grief, asthma, blood pressure, sexual dysfunction, warts, compulsions.Hypnotherapy has been a great help in improving exam performance, study recall, memory, sports focus, public speaking, personal growth, pain control, performance, assertiveness, childbirth, communication, relaxation, counselling confidence, releasing the past, personal empowerment, goal setting.Hypnosis can be used in the treatment of most disorders, whether mental or otherwise, where the relaxation response promotes the person’s positive mindset. For example, with a physical injury, the person’s mental resources can be enlisted to aid in managing the subsequent discomfort, allow for some rest, and lessen the associated emotional trauma. It must be noted that Hypnotherapy is not a replacement for medical treatment from your doctor.

What Is The History Of Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is not a new modality of treatment. Hypnosis has had a variety of names and has been used for millenia as a means of influencing human behaviour. Therapeutic suggestion and concentration have been practised throughout the history as we have sought to recognise and treat discomfort, disorder and disease. The Celts and Druids practised hypnosis. The Egyptians established “sleep temples” some 4,000 years ago dedicated to therapeutic trance states in which curative suggestions were given. The Bible contains many sections which allude to hypnotic phenomena. Primitive tribes had Shamans who practised ritual, sleep cures and healing suggestions to remove the influences responsible for illness. Undoubtedly, the chants of the earliest medicine men helped many patients to restore their health. Think about the crooning and rocking that a mother uses to help her fitful child into a peaceful state of quiet and sleep.In modern times, hypnosis is usually dated to Vienna in the 1700s and a young physician named Mesmer. The method Mesmer used became known as Mesmerism. Mesmer guided his patients to use their powerful imaginations. By doing so, Mesmer unwittingly lay the corner stone of many present-day therapies. Today, imagery techniques are used in many health care settings, with cancer patients, and in the areas of sports and business motivation.In 1855, English surgeon, James Esdaile, used hypnotic skills in India. He operated on three thousand patients, of which three hundred were major procedures. He discovered the mortality rate dropped from 50% to 5%, and that many of his patients recovered more quickly, had increased resistance to infection, and had greater comfort. He presented his findings to the Royal Academy of Physicians in London. His work was denounced as blasphemous because “God intended for people to suffer”.During the 1st and 2nd World Wars, interest in hypnosis was heightened because hypnosis was found to be very effective in combating war neurosis. The success of hypnosis in dismissing symptoms through a reliving of the events of a traumatic experience created a wave of enthusiasm for hypnotic methods.It is probably true to say that hypnosis is clouded with more myths and misconceptions than any other form of psychological practice, even though these misconceptions have their roots in long-distant history and have no foundation in fact.In Australia and elsewhere throughout the world, hypnotherapy is now recognised as a valuable therapeutic methodology.

Am I Unconscious Or Asleep When Hypnotised?

No. In hypnosis, the conscious mind takes a rest. Hypnosis allows you and the hypnotherapist to tap into the storehouse of information that lies in the subconscious (or unconscious mind) and makes positive changes to thought patterns, habits or the effects of traumatic incidents that are having a negative impact either mentally or physically.
