Brief History of Hypnosis

This lesson gives you a background on the practice of hypnosis

The history of inducing trance states extends back probably as far as primitive man.

In ancient times, hypnosis was mainly used in religious or healing practices. For example, ancient Egyptian priests induced trances in the names of gods and goddesses in order to provide healing suggestions to the sick and troubled. These ceremonies were known as temple sleep.

Many of the shamans, medicine men and women, and healers in other cultures were also proficient in these techniques. I spent 2 months in the San Blas Islands off Panama living with the Kuna Indians. Here, I was able to meet with many shamans and watched them perform their rituals. I observed that the techniques they use are designed to induce hypnosis in their patients.

I have also witnessed the healing rituals used by the Mayan shamans in Guatemala and noticed the same techniques used for inducing hypnosis.
