from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hypotaxia (Greek hypotaxis ) describes the middle stage (or the second degree after " somnolence ") of hypnotic trance and is characterized by catalepsy , i.e. inability to move without corresponding suggestions. Most people can reach this state with relative ease. In hypnotherapy, this state is sufficient for most applications. With further relaxation and deepening of the hypnosis , this state can change into the somnambulance (compare somnambulism ).
