Pressbox (Press Release) -

Such an interesting topic. Hypnosis has been around for a very long time, but it appears that we are only just beginning to comprehend it's power.In this over view of hypnosis down the years, you may be surprised by a few of the conditions it has been used with.


Hypnosis as a term was introduced by a man called James Braid in 1841, but before that was known as Mesmerism. Braid had decided to update the name because there was now a better understanding of how hypnosis actually worked. Practitioners of Mesmerism had believed they had some special knowledge or unique power, and that for this reason, people became entranced. But, James Braid realised that it was not down to any special power the Mesmerist possessed, but rather the internal mental process of the subject that developed the mesmeric trance.


Emile Coue was one of the first people to write a manual on self-hypnosis. The framework for his system was heavily influenced by Braids findings before him. The concept of hypnosis being more of a self controlled frame of mind, in place of one reliant on the hypnotist alone was now starting to become popular. The result was that more people could now learn how to harness this learning to start making changes on a subconscious level.


Renowned psychoanalyst Sigmond Freud famously disregarded hypnotherapy as a fools game. Subsequent to his rejection of hypnosis, many people never considered it's use at the time. His regard for hypnosis as an aid to therapy did change as he learned more about it, although this came later in his life, too late for him to publish on it. Thankfully it's because of the stage performers carrying on the use of hypnosis, that the art is still around today.


After Freud, Milton Erickson tailored a hypnosis style which is still exciting many modern hypnotists - he called it Indirect Hypnosis. This permissive kind of hypnosis was very different to previous types of hypnosis; it was most effective for hypnotising patients who disliked the authoritative approach.


What was seen as a very different style of hypnosis was being taught to dentists and doctors during the same period by Dave Elman. This approach was quite direct, and often used anaesthesia and hypno-analysis. His rapid hypnotic methods are currently used by therapists today.


Ormond McGill died in 2005, a hypnotist who had a profound influence on many people. Writer of the 'Encyclopaedia of Stage Hypnosis' and he was known as 'The Dean of American Hypnosis'. He was best known for his stage hypnosis work, however it must be said he was also very skilled as a hypnotherapist as well.


Gil Boyne passed away in 2010, author of Transforming Therapy, which used previous findings made by Elman and Dr Erickson, and forms the roots of a lot of hypno-analysis therapy in schools today. Boyne incorporated Elman and Erickson's methods, and used these to influence a therapy system used in many schools today. Many hypnosis practitioners have said that Boyne was the godfather of reproducible hypnotherapy techniques.


Today there are many, many inspiring proponents in the area of hypnosis, way too many to mention in this article. Nowadays the internet has resulted in a huge growth in communication between therapists. With these advancements hypnotherapists have made progression into the areas of physical illness such as arthritis and I.B.S. as well as the standard uses, including weight control and giving up smoking.
