There are many unconscious body signals that are know to be indications of trance; That are know to be indicative of honest unconscious processes.
When any person displays these signs, these unconscious behaviours are verified, accepted and welcomed when the hypnotherapist detects and then comments on them by saying “Thats Right” or “Very Good” or words to this effect. This is a conscious confirmation or a ‘stroke’ to your clients conscious and unconscious mind.
It is possible to develop a very deep level of trance using only these words. This is equivalent to saying ‘what you are doing is perfect, well done!’ and the behaviour, in this case the development of trance is amplified and encouraged.
