History of Hypnotism, Hypnotherapy ?

Post by Admin on Mon Apr 03, 2017 11:32 am

History of medicine traces Hypnotism back to late 1700, when Franz Mesmer chanced upon it, and wrongly ascribed it to body magnetism, Hypnotism gained currency in the medical world only in the 1950s.In fact, the first doctor to try and practice it was James Braid, the Scottish doctor and surgeon in the late 1800s. Braid adopted the term "Hypnotism" as an abbreviation for "Neuro-Hypnotism" or nervous sleep (that is, sleep of the nerves), in his lectures of and it is from his influential work that others derived the term "Hypnosis" in the 1880s.Braid is regarded by many as the first genuine "Hypnotherapist" and the "Father of Modern Hypnotism

Hypnosisis a small puzzle inside a greater puzzle called the human mind. Though a Scientific definition of Hypnotism is yet to be arrived at, and it is doubtful whether it would be done so in the near future, psychiatrists in Chennai have constructed a working model of the Hypnotic process, and understand the general character of Hypnosis. Under Hypnosis, a person is in a kind of trance, relaxed with heightened imagination and extremely suggestible.

Remember, that person under Hypnosis is not sleeping or dreaming. He is aware of things around him, and is aware of what is being suggested to him. Only that his defenses are relaxed, and is willing to do what he would normally hesitate to do.
