The Romans are known to have used 'trance healing' to help allay pain. They borrowed this technique from the greeks during the rise of the Roman Empire. Hippocrates - the father of modern medicine - is known to have said of hypnosis 'the afflictions suffered by the body the soul sees quite well with shut eyes'
In 1845 a book was published by James Esdaile MD called 'Hypnosis in medicine and surgery' in which he describe a method of production of anaesthesia by the use of hypnosis.
In more modern times, hypnosis and hypnotherapy is now recognised as a valid form of treatment for many conditions.
Hypnotherapy is treatment by the use of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes and should only be administered in this way by a qualified professional. Hypnotherapy is a form of Psychological therapy and counselling and is used in the treatment of emotional and psychological disorders, unwanted habits and undesirable feelings. The aim of all such therapy is to assist people in finding meaningful alternatives to their present unsatisfactory ways of thinking, feeling or behaving. Therapy also tends to help clients become more accepting both of themselves and others and can be most useful in promoting personal development and unlocking inner potential.
