The Dave Elman Induction is a hypnotic process developed by Dave Elman. This technique is famous for its method called pyramiding. It is a process where you stack several hypnotic inductions – one on top of the other – to provide multiple hypnotic experiences within three to four minutes to get a desired result.

In this episode, I’m going to share how to troubleshoot the Dave Elman Induction and explain how I do it inside my hypnotic sessions. I discuss the different phases of the technique as well as share actionable strategies you can use during your hypnotic sessions. I also share how other hypnotists dilute this process; thus, making it ineffective and the client experience less satisfactory.

“There are no resistant clients. There are only inflexible practitioners.“
