The starting position of the "Eye-to-Eye Fixation and Giving Suggestions Technique" and the first hypnotic ritual is settled by the practitioner as below (Figure 1 & 2):
i. Left thumb is located covering Governing Vessel (GV) 24 (the intersection point of the GV, Bladder (BL) and Stomach (ST) Meridians).
ii. Left index finger is positioned covering ST8 (the intersection point of the ST, Gallbladder (GB) and Yang Wei Meridians).
iii. Left middle and ring fingers are located over the area including GB and BL Meridians.
iv. Left little finger is placed on the area covering GV20 (the intersection point of the GV, BL and Liver (LR) Meridians) and Ex- si Shen Cong.
v. Right thumb of the practitioner holds the chin of the patient around the intersection point of the mandible base and
Conception Vessel (CV) Meridian.
vi. Right index and middle fingers rest on the area around CV23 (the intersection point of the CV and Yin Wei Mai). This area on the neck also covers Ex-Shang Lianquan.
After settling the starting position of this technique, the practitioner looks through the eyes of the patient from a distance of approximately 20-25 cm while pressing downwards the left thumb on the sagittal plane slowly from GV24 area towards glabella following GV meridian. The left thumb stops on the area covering Ex-Yin Tang when the patient's eyes get closed simultaneously. At the same time, the practitioner moves the right thumb upwards with a gentle pressure on the sagittal plane towards mentolabial groove and stops on the area including
CV24 (the intersection point of the CV, Large Intestine (LI) and ST Meridians).
The second hypnotic ritual that can be used during the
application of the "Eye-to-Eye Fixation and Giving Suggestions Technique” is applied on either side of the face like this (Figure 3):
i. Each thumb of the practitioner is placed on either side of the median line between eyebrows including the area between BL2 and GV.
ii. Each index finger is put right in front of the upper ear muscle covering GB7 (the intersection point of the GB and BL Meridians).
iii. Each middle finger is positioned in front of tragus, on the area covering GB2, Small Intestine (SI) 19 (the intersection point of the SI, Triple Warmer (TW) and GB Meridians), and TW21.
iv. Each ring finger is positioned on the area including TW17 (the intersection point of the TW and GB Meridians).
v. Each little finger is located on the area covering ST6 (the intersection point of the ST and GB Meridians).
This position of the hands of the practitioner is followed by light micro circular passes made in front of and top of each ear with the other fingers while each thumb is fixed between the eyebrows.
The third hypnotic ritual initiates with the positioning of the practitioner's hands on either side of the patient's face as below (Figure 4):
i. Each thumb is put in front of tragus on the area including GB2, SI19 and TW21 where GB, TW, ST and SI meridians come together.
ii. Each index finger is placed superior to the apex of the ear and over the triangle area having GB7, GB8 (the intersection point of the GB and BL Meridians) and TW20 (the intersection point of the GB and TW Meridians) as its corners.
iii. Each middle finger and ring finger is placed behind the auricle while middle finger is located around GB10 (the intersection point of the GB and BL Meridians) and TW19, and ring finger is positioned covering GB11 (the intersection point of the GB and BL Meridians).
iv. Each little finger is located on the mastoid process around GB12 (the intersection point of the GB and BL Meridians).
Then, the practitioner makes circular hand passes on each temporal region with the tips of other fingers while each thumb is fixed on its initial position, i.e. in front of tragus. These hand
passes on each side of the patient's head starts from the upper ear muscle and goes towards mastoid process following the path behind the auricle. Along this path, GB and TW meridians were passed by fingertips with a gentle pressure. When each index finger reaches to the lobule of the ear and passes over the area including GB12 and TW17, each thump makes a lateral rotation and turns upwards without touching the patient's body. Then, with a light touch, the dorsa-distal surfaces of the other four fingers on each side slide further down to the neck, pass over sternocleidomastoid muscle then clavicle, and reach to the neck triangle which is located above the clavicle between the front edge of the trapezius muscle and the lateral part of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. These hand passes finally end on the hand fingertips of the patient on either side, after passing over the anterior, lateral, posterior and/or medial surface of each arm depending on the position of the patient.
