Like the podcast on questions that come up during and about inductions. One thing that happened to me recently that I am not sure how to handle - I had a client I was working with for pain managment that I could tell had a long history of surpressing emiotional pain. About the time I would get the client beginning to relax, they would come out because they suddenly hurt someplace, someplace they had not had any discomfort until they got partially under, still having trouble gettng them down.

Hello Andre - Thanks for leaving a comment and asking a question. Thanks for you positive input on our podcast!
In my opinion, we need to stop using words like "under" and "down". These words and concepts are not productive and can cause problems if that is the expectation of the hypnotist or the client. I like to say things like "go into hypnosis" instead.
For this client I would bypass doing the relaxation type induction, at least until I have removed this problem with going into hypnosis via a relaxation induction. Obviously something like the Eight Word Induction (which has relies on the startle response to induce hypnosis) would not be the way to go either.
Do a search for Time Tunneling Technique on Google, Bing or Yahoo and you will come up with videos and articles that I have produced on this technique of mine. It works really great in situations where using relaxation or the startle response does not work. When using the TTT induction you do not need relaxation at all. You use emotion to trigger the age regression work that is required to help the client work through these issues.
I hope that helps you out.
Here's to YOUR success,
