WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?

THE EPITOME OF MIND-BODY MEDICINE

Hypnosis is a human condition involving focused attention, reduced peripheral awareness, and an enhanced capacity to respond to suggestion. People have been entering into hypnotic-type trances for thousands of years. In many cultures and religions, it was regarded as a form of meditation. Modern-day hypnosis, however, started in the late 18th century and was made popular by Franz Mesmer, a German physician who became known as the father of 'modern hypnotism'. In fact, hypnosis used to be known as 'Mesmerism' as it was named after Mesmer.

The term hypnosis comes from the ancient Greek word ὑπνος hypnos, "sleep", and the suffix -ωσις -osis, or from ὑπνόω hypnoō, "put to sleep" and the suffix -is. The words hypnosis and hypnotism both derive from the term neuro-hypnotism (nervous sleep).

 

WHAT ARE ITS PRINICPLES?

THE MIND IS POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE

Altered state theories see hypnosis as an altered state of mind or trance, marked by a level of awareness different from the ordinary state of consciousness. In contrast, nonstate theories see hypnosis as, variously, a type of placebo effect, a redefinition of an interaction with a therapist. or form of imaginative role enactment.

 

Analogies between practice of hypnotism and various Oriental meditative practices such as those of Hindu yoga meditation and other ancient spiritual practices have been made. The Dabistān-i Mazāhib For instance, is an ancient Persian text describing a wide variety of Oriental religious rituals, beliefs, and practices and featuring many statements corroborative of the fact, that the eastern saints are all self-hypnotisers and that hypnotism could be produced in solitude, without the presence of any other person.

Studies have shown an association of hypnosis with stronger theta-frequency activity as well as with changes to the gamma-frequency activity.
