A Quick History Of Hypnotherapy
As far back as history has been recorded, human beings have been altering their states of consciousness using different methods including song, dance, drumming, storytelling, plant based and chemical substances for a variety of reasons.
The earliest storytellers, shaman, leaders, entertainers and educators enthralled their audiences, sometimes for hours at a time, with a purpose in mind.
