In 1778 Friedrich Anton Mesmer astounded Paris and the medical world by introducing what he termed a new medical theory the theory he called animal magnetism. Although he was discredited and accused of being a practitioner of black magic mesmerism was to continue to fascinate medical men until it flowered in to the present days wholly scientific and important branch of medicine called hypnotism.
