Paracelsus, a scientist and physician  of Swiss
                origin, developed a theory about the
                interrelationship between the stars and the
                human disease processes

1734 – 1815        Australian physician MESMER, developed the
                above    theory further by assuming that there
                was a universal fluid, which pervades the
                earth and all human beings. He named this
                 fluid “Animal Magnetism”.
4.1756 – 1819        Abbe de Faria, Catholic priest, is considered to             be the     first Hypnotist because he used “GO             TO SLEEP” phrase. He corrected Mesmer’s             theory by stating that according to his             research, there was no need for a universal             fluid to induce trance; it was the power of             suggestion that lead to a sleep like state 1795 – 1860        The induction of “LUCID” sleep was             developed further by the English optometrist             James Braid. During experiments Braid found             that the trance like state was very genuine             and very natural, especially when subjects fix             their gaze on a shinning object. He named                 this state “Hypnosis” after the Greek word                 “HYPNO” which means sleep. 1820            Du Potent began a series of observation of             Hypnosis, appointed by the French Academy             of Medicine.  

5.1788 – 1863        Dr. John Elliotson, on June 25, 1846 explained the use of clairvoyant subjects for diagnosing  obscure cases.

1808 – 1859        Dr. James Esdaile performed hundreds of
                painless surgical operation in Calcutta, India.

1795 – 1860        Dr. James Braid published a book titled
                “Hypnotism for Medical Use”.

1841            Bernheim, professor of medicine at Nancy,
                 published a book De La Suggestion
                (Suggestive Therapeutics).
                Liebeault and Bernheim are known as the
                 Fathers of Modern Hypnosis.

one to quack like a duck in a night club. One hundred years ago
hypnotists were called charlatans, and during the Middle Ages, a
hypnotist was considered a witch.

a university researcher, or a nurse, and to be employed in
the emergency room of Jefferson Hospital in Louisiana, at
the figure skating pavilion in the Olympics, or at the local
weight control center.
