Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for treating such conditions asaddictions, anxiety, depression, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, phobias and stress. Hypnotherapy is believed to have begun in the eighteenth century with the work of the Austrian physician, Franz Anton Mesmer.

Mesmer utilized the ethereal sounds of a glass harmonica to assist in producing a trancelike state in the patient, which he used as acurative remedy. Dismissed as a quack by most of his peers,Mesmer’s work was latched on to by a Scottish physician namedJohn Braid, who came up with the term hypnosis after the Greek God ‘Hypnos’.

Hypnosis is not a state of sleep but a state of relaxation varying from light to deep. Tests have shown that a person is neitherunconscious, nor asleep. Tests have shown that a person in deephypnosis is in a state of deep relaxation and engaged in normalmental activity.

The hypnotherapist induces this state by various methods, includingeye fixation, progressive relaxation and imagery. Once the patientis in this state the therapist uses suggestion, which is aimed at influencing behaviour and relieving symptoms.
