Hypnosis Myth #12: Hypnosis is catalepsy and a person cannot move when in that state.

Updated: Mar 20, 2019

You may not want to move, think or speak!

Fact:

Catalepsy can occur in or out of trance and is not hypnosis in and of itself.


The apparently “catatonic” state known as the hypnotic coma is not an unconscious or cataleptic state but is such a state of profound relaxation that the person does not want to move, think or speak.


However, you are fully conscious and can terminate that state anytime you would want to.
