“Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks within, awakens”Carl Jung

Hypnosis is the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person apparently loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction. The name comes from “hypnos”, Greek for sleep, and it actually derives from the term neuro-hypnotism, in other words sleep of the nervous system. It was around 1841 when Scottish physician and surgeon James Braid coined it and it has been in use ever since. Today, Braid is considered to be the father of modern hypnotism. That was the dawn of hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy which uses hypnosis as therapeutic technique used for a wide range of purposes, such as recovering suppressed memories, modification of behaviour, treating insomnia, anxiety, addictions etc. In popular culture hypnosis is a common occurrence, here’s one example. It’s not news that new technologies have penetrated into all spheres of life, but it could be a bad news for doctors, considering the fact that now you can go under hypnosis in the comfort of your home without visiting a therapist. The only thing you need is your smartphone.
