After a number of terrific emails, I've decided to add a page pertaining to music and sound effects for your hypnosis show.

I've had a number of beginning hypnotists email me over the past few months. One of the common questions is, "Should I use any music for my induction?" Absolutely! I highly recommend you pick up a copy of Enja - Water Mark. The entire CD is terrific for hypnotic inductions - especially cut #1 - the title track - Water Mark. It can be ordered right off the Internet from Tower Records. In fact, if you click on the image of the CD, you'll move directly to the Tower Records website. Another CD I highly recommend is Robert Miles - Dreamland. Dreamland is a little more dramatic than Enja's Water Mark. They both retail for around the twenty dollar mark - a sound investment!

Do sound effects (SFX) add to the hypnotic experience?

Sound effects add an exciting element to your hypnosis show. For example - if you've suggested to your subject that they're traveling on a train, use a train SFX to enhance the experience. You can record your SFX onto cassette or if you have a disc burner - recorded them onto a CD. If you're using cassettes, only put one SFX on each tape. Remember, you will need to make sure the cassettes are cued-up prior to your show. It's also a good idea to have an assistant play the music and SFX as your focus will be upon your subjects. Be sure to rehearse the show prior to performing. A couple practice sessions will go a long way toward creating a professional presentation and a positive impression in the minds of your audience.
