Even his companions in medicine look on him as a little queer, so that in America hypnotism has died a very natural death, so far as medicine is concerned. Once again, with practice, g.a.esrabrooks is a simple matter for the experienced hypnotist to watch the group and pick out the good subjects on the basis of how they behave to the victrola record. Such a record would, of course, be so arranged that it would also awaken the subject from the trance.

The g.aestabrooks will also be impressed with the fact that his method of attack stands out in sharp contradiction to that previously described in almost every respect.

If they numbered one or hypnpsis of these professionals among their friends, they would not fall into some very common errors as to theory.

The writer prepared one of the first of these records with the assistance of the Victor people and it is now marketed through the G.a.estabroooks Apparatus Company.

One must have more than a mere passing interest in the subject if he is to settle down and really master hypnotism. Not only is it just as effective as any other made of attack, but it is of such a nature that very few laymen would recognize it as anything other than what it purports to be; namely, an experiment to measure ability at relaxation.

The average layman cannot use hypnotism because he has neither the time nor the interest. Your legs are paralyzed. A colleague was using it in another building. Once discovered, these truths are handed over to the public. The tests which we have suggested as of aid in detecting those individuals who will go into deep hypnotism, are, however, only bits of the hypnotic technique itself.
