• This is an authoritarian induction, so remember to stand and deliver your suggestions in a firm manner and tone.

  • You must ask your client’s permission before touching them.

  • Choose your client’s non-dominant hand.

  • In this induction you gently take hold of the client's wrist and suggest movement gently guiding the hand upwards.

  • When you feel that catalepsy has been achieved and the client is ready to enter trance you let go of the hand and it will remain cataleptic and suspended in the air.

  • You then deepen the trance by returning the hand to the client’s lap.

  • Remember to remove all suggestions for lightness etc. at the end of the trance.


  • Do not use if your client experiences pain when moving their shoulder, arm or back.
