You can trace the history of hypnotherapy back to the healing practices that existed in ancient Greece and Egypt, when most religions considered a trance-like behavior as spiritual possession. The word hypnotherapy itself has its origins in the Greek word” Hypnos”, and takes after James Bird’s Neuro hypnotism, which refers to sleep of the nervous system. However, the father of modern hypnotherapy is undoubtedly, Austrian physician Dr. Frank Mesmer, who in 1779 stimulated a trance-like state he called mesmerism, to treat nervous disorders. Today we call this treatment as hypnotherapy.
In spite of the many difficulties suffered by Dr. Frank Mesmer, and the unwarranted criticism his peers heaped on him, some even calling him eccentric or mad, after two hundred years, the medical fraternity approved his efforts.. The British Medical Association gave its approval in 1955 and the American Medical Association soon followed with its approval in the year 1958.
