Hypotaxia (middle trance)
Hypotaxia refers to the middle trance that can occur under hypnosis. Here the client carries out the suggestions with closed eyes, it can also happen that he carries out illogical suggestions. The client is deeply relaxed, but still partially consciously perceives the hypnosis. It may happen that the body is almost insensate and everyday consciousness moves more and more into the background. Thus, the suggestions are hardly filtered by the conscious mind and can thus reach the subconscious mind. In the middle trance, hypnosis also becomes interesting for insensitivity to pain (analgesia) or even painlessness (anesthesia).
