Eye closure is an “old school” hypnotic technique that is quick, fun and a good example of the mind and body connection. The following audio demonstration is 7 minutes in length. The actual eye closure technique takes less than 2 minutes, I have added commentary. In therapy sessions with people I rarely use this style of directive authoritarian hypnosis where I say “do this and now do that”, though, there are times where that style is very helpful. My hypnosis tends to be more indirect, conversational, and personal with the use of metaphor and suggestion.
Listen to a brief demonstration of the Eye Closure technique.
