Brief History of Hypnosis
The word hypnosis originated from the Greek, meaning simply ‘sleep’. Throughout history usage of hypnotic procedures have seen their own times.
The oldest written record of cures by hypnosis was obtained from the Ebers Papyrus which gives us an idea about some of the theory and practice of Egyptian medicine before 1552 BC. The Ebers Papyrus, a treatment was described in which the physician placed his hands on the head of the patient and, claiming superhuman therapeutic powers gave forth with strange remedial utterances which were suggested to the patients, and which resulted in cures. King Pyrrhus of Egypt, The Emperor Vespasian, Francis I of France and other French Kings up to Charles X practiced healing in this manner. The Egyptians are thought to have originated the “Sleep Temples”, in which the priests gave similar treatment to their patients through the use of suggestion. These temples became very popular in Egypt, and spread throughout Greece and Asia. Hippocrates, the Greek physician referred to most frequently as “the Father of Medicine” and who oath all graduating physicians take, is know to have discussed the phenomenon saying “the affliction suffered by the body, the soul seeks quite well with the eyes shut”.
