(Frequently Asked Questions)

What exactly is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural, relaxed state of awareness, much like daydreaming, in which you do not become unconscious. It is a state of relaxation where a person becomes "hyper suggestible."  In this state of intense relaxation and concentration the subconscious part of the mind responds to suggestion and imagery.

Is Hypnosis dangerous?
Hypnosis is a perfectly natural phenomenon. It is quite common for the average person to drift into a hypnotic state completely on their own many times throughout the course of a normal day. Hypnosis is quite safe and can offer many benefits and results through it's simple application of relaxation and concentration.

Is the subject actually asleep or in a trance during Hypnosis?
Although Hypnosis appears to be a trancelike state, much of this stigma comes from misrepresented portrayals in movies, on television, and from other media sources. Although the term "sleep" may be utilized during Hypnosis, it is not the same sleep that we enjoy each night. If it were the same type of sleep the subjects would not be able to hear and respond to the Hypnotist, which is necessary for Hypnosis.


Can anyone be Hypnotized?
Yes, as long as they will allow themselves to be. Hypnosis is a cooperation between the Hypnotist and the subject. If the subject resists they are unlikely to become Hypnotized. Not everyone becomes Hypnotized during our performance, only those who volunteer and choose to allow themselves to be Hypnotized.

Can Hypnosis make me able to do anything I wouldn't want to do?
Hypnosis cannot make you do anything that you would not normally be willing, able, or capable of doing. Hypnosis cannot cause, but it can expose. You will not do anything that is against your morals or ethics while under Hypnosis.

What is a Master Hypnotist?
A Master Hypnotist is recognized as a professionally trained and certified operator who demonstrates a level of skill, knowledge, experience, and proficiency, and has undergone the required and continuing training of the professional certifying board.

Is your performance a serious exhibition of Hypnosis or a comedy show?
It is the best of both worlds! The show is designed to showcase Hypnosis in an entertaining format, while demonstrating how Hypnosis works. While we won't assist anyone to quit smoking or overcome a fear of flying during the show, we will feature the many abilities, possibilities, and applications that are presently available through Hypnosis.

How long is your performance?
A standard performance is between 60 and 75 minutes. We can customize a performance to your specific needs with shorter shows of 45 minutes, to a 90 minute performance or a complete two hour Hypnotic extravaganza!

How does Hypnosis differ from other forms of entertainment and why should we choose Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is truly unlike most other forms of entertainment as it contains all of the essential elements to a successful performance - intrigue, suspense, comedy and laughter, spontaneity, and audience participation. Audience members are captivated and amazed as they watch their friends, coworkers, spouses, and family members experience this phenomenon. You can truly expect the unexpected with Hypnosis. Other reasons Hypnosis is so successful is that many people have yet to experience a Stage Hypnosis Show, and since each show and it's subjects are different, even those who have experienced Hypnosis before will find each show to be fresh and unique. Unlike other forms of entertainment The Robinn Lange Stage Hypnosis Show is filled with comedy and continuous laughter while creating memories that will last long after the show has ended. All of these qualities combined create a mass-appeal not offered by most other forms of entertainment.
