FAQ’s

Is Dr. H’s Hypnosis show appropriate for my conservative group?

Dr. H knows how to keep the room captivated — without crossing that “blue material” line.  Therefore whether performing at a comedy club, high school, university, or your corporate banquet, everything is 100% squeaky clean.  There is nothing nasty, vulgar, sexual, sexist, racist in the act.  From beginning to end, your audience will keep laughing from good clean fun.  You can be sure that there won’t be any uncomfortable moments for anyone.


How does Dr. H choose his volunteers?

Dr. H begins his show with a quick introduction of what hypnosis is… and what it is not.  He then explains to the audience the criteria to be a volunteer and what one should expect should they decide to join him on stage.  Dr. H then makes a call for volunteers and randomly brings up between 30-40 volunteers on stage.  Dr. H prefers to pick his own volunteers.  Your student leadership or association board might not be ideal hypnosis subjects.  Besides, bringing up volunteers ‘on the spot’ allows the audience to see that nothing is ‘set up’ or prearranged with volunteers and furthermore prevents volunteers from certain ‘clicks’ from being the only people to take part in the show.


Is Dr. H ‘s hypnosis show safe?

YES.  Hypnosis itself is 100% safe.  There is no danger of going into hypnosis and never coming out – hypnosis just doesn’t work that way.  There are no side effects caused by someone going into hypnosis.  Furthermore, Dr. H is an experienced hypnotist who always keeps in mind the safety of his subjects.

* At the beginning of the show, Dr. H announces that as part of his volunteer criteria, he will accept nobody as a subject who has a broken arm… broken leg… sprained ankle… or any injury whatsoever.  Neither will he accept anyone who is pregnant, under a doctors care, or on any medication — legal or illegal. 


Does Dr. H explain what hypnosis is to the audience?

Absolutely.  Everyone is fascinated with hypnosis.  They don’t just want to watch it – they want to understand “Why” and “How” hypnosis works.  During the performance Dr. H educates (without lecturing) his audience as he dispels the myths and misconceptions that many people have about hypnosis.


How long does the hypnosis show last?  Is there a minimum or maximum time limit?

Dr. H is able to provide a hypnosis program of  virtually any length of time you desire.  Although he understands that sometimes his clients are working with time constraints beyond their control, Dr. H does recommend that he be provided with a minimum of 50 minutes to execute his act.  The ideal time span for a hypnosis show is between 50 and 90 minutes.  


When working high schools, can Dr. H do multiple shows for schools that need split assemblies?

Yes.  Dr. H books his show with the intention that when he leaves the client says “WOW! We got our monies worth!”  Therefore if your school needs multiple assemblies to accommodate your growing student population, Dr. H is happy to comply.  Dr. H can usually present up to a maximum of four hypnosis assemblies per day. 


Can the hypnosis show be presented with a message to my high school assembly?

Yes.  The presentation of hypnosis and the unlimited power of the human mind lends itself to a perfect opportunity to share a message encouraging students to care for their most prized possession – their mind.  Dr. H has presented his hypnosis show with themes relating to Drug & Alcohol Prevention, Student Community & Leadership, and motivational messages encouraging students to make use of their mind and create an amazing future!  Call Dr. H with your message requests at 806-792-4164.


Does Dr. H need students to present permission slips to be volunteers?

No.  Absolutely not.  In fact, Dr. H discourages the use of permission slips or pre-show sign ups to become a volunteer.  First, it destroys the credibility of the hypnosis show – if volunteers are not brought randomly from the audience, the show looses a lot of its excitement.  Second, and almost more importantly, when volunteers are pre-selected or allowed to participate only with signed permission slips – nine times out of ten we end up with a show with less than a dozen available volunteers.  Unfortunately, that’s just not enough.


Our school does not have a stage… will the gym floor do?

Yes.  One thing about a hypnosis show is that it is entirely flexible. As long as we have lots of room, a good sound system, and lots of volunteers – there should be no problem.  A High School gym makes for a great stage!


I can’t decide which show to have for my event.  Can you mix the two (HYPNOSIS and the Magic Show together?

You bet!  For those groups that want a little of both, Dr. H can begin his show with a bit of magic and illusion, then smoothly slide into his hypnosis presentation.  The two shows complement each other so well that this is Dr. H’s recommended show format for formal banquets.

Final Thought:

Until there is an image in the mind, there can be no reality. All great inventions began with a thought in the mind. The inventor was able to visualize the invention before he could bring it to reality. The same is true of great music, great writing, great living. If you want to change your life, your lifestyle, your habits, you must change the image that your mind holds. When working with a person for weight control, I have the person imagine or visualize themselves the size they want to be as if they were that size and to imagine stepping on the scale and weighing their desired weight. I request that they do this each night just before going to sleep and each morning just after they wake up from sleep.

I should point out that imagery and day-dreaming are different from one another. Imagery motivates one to accomplish that which is visualized. The day dreamer is satisfied with the dream and is not motivated to accomplish the goal. Imagery is not wishful thinking but hopeful expectation of what is desired with the motivation to believe it to reality.

Jonathan Edwards said, “The ideas and images in men’s minds are the invisible power that constantly governs them.” The wise old man of Proverbs once wrote, “Whatever a person thinketh his heart so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7) Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” and “Imagination is your preview of coming events.” One of the characteristics of the subconscious mind is that which is expected, good or bad, tends to be realized. The most effective imaging is that which communicates with the subconscious “in the heart”. The mental picture you hold of yourself is what directs and controls you. You can use your imagination to improve you or destroy you.  

The subconscious mind seeks to meet your deepest needs, expectations, wishes, and desires but does not always do it the way you want it done. A very important point to remember is that the subconscious can not tell the difference between a wish and a fear. The subconscious interprets a fear as a wish. Fear (negative expectation) is our greatest enemy. Faith (positive expectation) is our greatest ally.

The more one uses positive images in his mind, the easier it becomes for these images to become a reality. When images of health, success, and life styles changes are accepted by the subconscious mind, there is a tendency for the images to be realized. If you visualize or image yourself doing whatever it is you desire, you begin to act, do, think in ways to bring it about.

What about PERMISSION SLIPS

You or your teen will be attending an event where there will be a hypnosis show. I do not require a permission slip to be used for my shows. Since the person or persons who have hired us to do our show have requested that permission slips be used, then if your teen wishes to be hypnotized and is under the age of 18 years old, please sign and date this permission slip and return to the High School or Corporate Committee who is responsible for bringing our show to your area, prior to the event. I understand that the show will be video taped and DVD’s of the show will be sold.
