Question by JustifiedSinner: Is it possible to wake up a hypnotized person with smelling salts or other physiological method?
Someone (not a hypnosis expert) told me that physiological methods don’t work in waking up a hypnotized person because there’s not a strong enough link to the psychological.

It depends what the circumstances are. Mostly, anything shocking will take a person out of trance unless they are instructed to remain in trance, which is easy–”even a smell or sound or feeling that would normally distract you will only serve to make you feel more relaxed.” Other than that, I think if you are _trying_ to wake a person up with that method, it will work. It’s better to use the traditional methods of counting down and suggesting that they awake refreshed and all that.
