Why does hypnosis work?
Hypnosis (from Greek hypnosis, sleep) is a condition defined as the sum of five points in Rainville and Price (2003):
The feeling of mental relaxation. Not necessarily physical relaxation
Attention is focused and fixed on one or a few goals
A reduced assessment, monitoring and censorship
Change in the experience of time and place, and change in self-experience
Own responses are experienced as automatic, that is, they come without any intention or effort
Today, hypnotic condition can be confirmed by the brain scan of qualified health professionals.
Hypnotization (driving a person into hypnosis) is used in hypnotherapy, and belongs to a few methods of psychotherapy that are scientifically proven and accepted as effective.
Why we succeed...
HistoryHypnotization has probably been used early in human history. There are accounts of cultic acts in shamanism that are certainly related to driving people into hypnosis by means of self or foreign sug- gestion. One can therefore assume that hynosis was randomly discovered, and is based on meditative and cultic actions with a religious point of view.
Scientific discovery of hypnosis began around 1770 by Franz Anton Mesmer (1734-1815). He experimented with magnets, which he placed on the patients. He called the effect ‘Magnetismus animalis’, and attributed the healing property to the magnets. Due to Mesmer’s popularity, this precursor to hypnosis was called “mesmerization”, a term that still exists in English.
James Braid, a Scottish physician, is considered the originator of the term hypnosis. He explained hypnosis as a narrowing of consciousness and a strong concentrated attention. He named this state of “nervous sleep” hypnosis after the Greek god of sleep, Hypnosis.
In the 19th century, France was a leader in hypnosis research.
Sigmund Freud (1856–1939) became aware of Mesmer’s experiments when, in 1885, he studied under the neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot in Paris. He himself began using Mesmer’s methods in the treatment of his patients, and this later became the starting point for the studies of hysteria.
In Germany, hypnosis techniques were further developed by brain researcher Oscar Vogt, and by his student Johannes Heinrich Schultz, who developed the technique autogenic training. American research was led by Milton Erickson. Erickson founded a new form of hypnotherapy, which today is considered to be the most modern form of hypnotherapy.
