A number of different methods for he introduction of hypnosis and autohypnosis are carefully outlined and explained in Hypnosis: Theory, Practice, and Application, with a view to making the secrets of hypnotic power available to any reader. As Dr. Foster Kennedy writes in the foreword:
The chapters on hypnotic technique are detailed and helpful. I have watched the author use these methods, and have seen him achieve rapid hypnosis of patients whose previous experiences had led them to believe that they would be difficult to hypnotize. The variety of methods outlined for he induction of hypnotic sleep, and the specific suggestions for its therapeutic application, give this book really practical value.
