Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis has been in use for thousands of years.There is a great deal of evidence to support the belief that Hypnosis and hypnotic suggestion was being used by the Ancient Greeks and Romans - for therapeutic benefit - as far back as about the fourth Century BC. Hypnosis and suggestion as we know it can be traced to the 1700's and austrian Franz Anton Mesmer. Mesmer (hence 'mesmerism') treated many patients at his Paris salon with the aid of suggestion and magnets, which he believed gave people healing properties. Successors and students of Mesmer discarded the magnets but continued to use relaxation and carefully worded suggestions. In the 1900's this practice was known as 'Suggestive Therapeutics' but is know commonly known as hypnotherapy.
