This book is about using ideomotor signals for rapid hypnoanalysis of psychosomatic disorders. I bought it mainly because:

  • I wanted to learn more about ideomotor signalling in hypnosis
  • I wanted to find out how to use LeCron’s 7 common causes of psychosomatic disorders

Let me say that this was an incredibly good purchase. Firstly, the book is written by a medical doctor and a clinical psychologist, so you have the knowledge that the theory and techniques are aligned with medical standards and practice. Secondly, you’ll find material here that you won’t easily find elsewhere. I’ve been reading up on ideomotor work because I found this a bit of a gap in my own training, and I suspect it’s a gap in the curricula of most hypnotherapy schools. Ideomotor Signals for Rapid Hypnoanalysis gives instruction on how to set up ideomotor signalling. Then it outlines a protocol for employing it in any situation a client brings you. From emotional issues to chronic medical issues – every cause can be accessed elegantly and processed using ideomotor finger signals.

Here are some of the highlights of the book:

  • Special intake questions – a set of questions that very cleverly gets to the bottom of a client’s issue before you even start hypnosis
  • Setting up ideomotor signals – the “how to” of setting up ideomotor finger signals
  • The protocal for rapid hypnoanalysis – an outline of a procedure to follow for any client with any problem
  • Ideomotor regression techniques – specific techniques such as retrograde searches, chronological searches, and direct approaches
  • LeCron’s 7 common causes of psychosomatic disorders
  • How to work with persistent pain

I mentioned at the outset that LeCron’s 7 “keys” or common causes of psychosomatic illnesses was one of the main reasons I bought the book, so let me give a brief outline. Psychologist and hypnotherapist Leslie LeCron is credited with identifying the 7 common issues that cause symptoms or discomfort. Briefly, they are

C – Conflict

O – Organ langauge

M – Motivation

P – Past experience

I – Identification

S – Self-punishment

S – Suggestion

All you do is go through the list, briefly explaining to the client (in trance) what each one means, and asking them to indicate with their ideomotor fingers whether they feel this cause is at work. When you get a yes response, you follow that and locate the age at which the trauma, imprint or suggestion happened. Let me say that this technique is magic! I have used it several times already and it is astonishing. No hypnotherapist should be without it.

    Your site is a wonderful resource, I often refer people to it.

    I would greatly appreciate your review of what I read on a hypnosis website that I found misleading and contradictory but I may be overly critical of it, that is why I am asking for your feed back. The site states:

    “One problem. One Solution. One Session. That means your desired result is designed to happen the first session. If more sessions are needed, there is no extra charge. There are very few hypnotists who will make this promise. Life long habits change permanently within the first day. While the results are often rapid you must understand that this is a training process and not a magic pill. Your commitment to the process is vital to your success.”

    (Do you see any contradiction in the above statement?

    I have found that Smoking Cessation most often requires only one session but Weight Loss needs reinforcement through multiple sessions plus teaching my clients self-hypnosis. I have also found that it is extremely useful to us ideomotor signals to see if the client is using food for emotional reasons which if not addressed can cause the old eating behaviors to return. I like using the questions offered in The 7 Common Causes of Psychosomatic Disorders for weight. And lastly, I know that quite often if the ISE of anxiety is not addressed in some manner that the anxiety most definitely returns as the subconscious mind works hard to protect the individual, though not logically. So back to my issue with this site, how can a hypnotist promise to solve issues, problems…in one session permanently?

    Thank you
