Emotional Dysfunction is as age-old of a problem as any ever was. Unfortunately it is one of the traits passed down from generation to generation. It seems as though it has only been since the advent of Hypnotherapy in the mid 1700’s by Mesmer.
Mesmer’s form of hypnosis or “mesmerism” used a metal rod that touched the subject while he told them they would go into “crisis” and then come out healed.
Mesmer discovered that various forms of suggestion induced a condition resembling sleep in certain types of patients.
