The original version of this article was first published in in the book All in the Mind — Hypnosis, Suggestion and the New Mesmerists. Is Stage Hypnosis safe? Of course it is… most of the time. But apart from the downright ridiculous urban myths surrounding stage hypnotism , there may be some real cause for concern.

Inside Stage Hypnosis
Stage Hypnosis Safety Certification Course. It is very important that you fully examine your stage and surrounding area. You are fully responsible for both the stage and the audience area. Loose Cables - Make sure that the stage and the audience areas are free from loose cables, even if you have nothing to do with them. Have the venue personnel, or even do it yourself, tape down any loose cables or cover them with a carpet or mat if necessary.
Hmm… Sometimes I think I came late to the hypno party. Most stage hypnotists tended to pad out their shows with a very long induction, so that the act of hypnotising the volunteers became the show itself. Somehow, hypnotists thought that doing big long boring inductions and watching people fall asleep, or sometimes, fall off their chairs was somehow entertainment. The actual show itself when it eventually started tended to be quite short with very simple, innocuous routines forgetting your name, forgetting how to count etc with perhaps the only controversial part being suspending a subject between two chairs and then getting someone to stand on their stomach. Anyway… some time in the s stage hypnosis became a little more adult.
