Learn How to Develop Your Career with MESMERISM
Two dimensions of Mesmerism
Mesmerism is both a bio-energy therapy and trance therapy, giving you another dimension to your practice and reason to stand out above the competition. Mesmerism influences the electromagnetic field around a person’s body.
Mesmerism for Hypnotherapists
Hypnotherapists have an advantage learning about Mesmerism. Many of the terms used are similar and hypnotherapists know how to work with trance.
Mesmerism will improve your success rate because deeper trance means better results with many conditions.
An understanding of Mesmerism is required to be an Expert Hypnotherapist
A hypnotherapist’s knowledge of hypnosis is incomplete without an understanding of Mesmerism, which formed the foundation of hypnotism. For example – Rapport (the relationship between the therapist and client). Mesmerists did a great amount of research on rapport. Modern hypnosis acknowledges the importance of rapport but regards it as something of minimal interest. Generally hypnotherapists are only vaguely familiar with the term. Mesmerists on the other hand expected at a minimum a subject would respond only to them and would not see or hear other people who were in the room. A subject in good rapport would have an almost telepathic connection with their mesmerist and be able to respond to the subtlest cues.
Modern hypnotherapists could greatly improve their success rate by learning more about rapport even if they don’t want to use the other techniques of mesmerism.
A Deeper Trance than Hypnotism
Lee Pulos PhD wrote in the 1980’s. There has been renewed interest in the application and investigation of mesmerism…particularly in healing practices.
Of his own experimental studies Dr Pulos said:
“Distinct differences were perceived between hypnosis and mesmerism with the later being experienced as a ‘deeper’ trance.”
The Incredible Hidden Power of Mesmerism
In the 1850’s James Esdaile performed over 3,000 operations using mesmerism as the only anesthesia. Not only did the patients feel no pain but also there was a most interesting side effect from the use of mesmerism. The post surgery mortality rate was reduced from 50% to 5% and this was in India, a tropical country, in the 1850’s!
What incredible hidden power and benefit mesmerism must have!
Elicit SUPERIOR INTELLIGENCE
A mysterious superior intelligence often appears in the mesmerized subject.
Mesmerism stimulated experiences and capacities that could transform the human body and mind.
The Marquis de Puysegur one of the most important early mesmerists discovered that a mysterious intelligence often came into play during Mesmerism and trance. As Lewis Thomas suggested, this was not the sort of confused, disorderly intelligence of the Freudian unconscious.
“There almost has to be a person in charge, running matters of meticulous detail beyond anyone’s comprehension, a skilled engineer and manager, a chief executive officer… a cell biologist of world class.” Lewis Thomas
This, perhaps was the most fundamental insight first seen in mesmerism, this glimpse of a superior intelligence within us that can drastically alter out perceptions and thinking, restore healthy functioning, and enhance our most basic capacities. From the wealth of mesmeric phenomena we learn that human functioning can be developed in more dramatic ways that we can imagine.
Mesmerism is a stand alone system of Psychotherapy
Professor Henri Ellenbergen of the University of Montreal wrote that the work of the Mesmerists resulted in the slow development of a well-rounded system of dynamic psychiatry.
“These pioneers undertook with great audacity the exploration and the therapeutic utilization of unconscious psychological energies. On the basis of their findings, they elaborated new theories about the human mind and the psychogenesis of illness. The first dynamic psychiatry was an impressive achievement, even more so since it was brought about mostly outside of –if not directly in opposition to – official medicine.”

About James Pool
James Pool, BA MA (University Cincinnati) has researched medical hypnosis for over 30 years, particularly medical hypnosis during its golden age, 1880 to 1900. He has worked in medical hypnosis since his days as a university graduate student, and is now course director of the UK’s first Master Practitioner Diploma in Medical Hypnosis.
After his university graduate studies, while living in Geneva James became a friend of the prominent Swiss psychiatrist and hypnotist Dr. Oscar Forel whose father, Dr August Forel was the director of the Burgholzli Institute before Jung and wrote the classic book ‘Hypnotism’ in 1889.
Dr Oscar Forel was over 90 years old when James knew him and his father Dr August Forel had lived to his nineties, so they formed a living link with the mesmerists of the past century. As a young man August Forel had studied and observed the work of many mesmerists including Dupotet, who brought mesmerism to England. Oscar Forel told James many of his father’s unpublished secrets about Mesmerism.
As best selling author of the ground breaking books, ‘Who Financed Hitler’ and ‘Hitler and his Secret Partners’ which were translated into 8 languages. James is an expert on Hitler’s psychology and personal magnetism. No one could mesmerize large audiences like Hitler.

What Others Are Saying About Training With James Pool
Thank you James Pool for a superb course. Also thank you for all your extensive research, giving us confidence to go to doctors and hospitals. I also enjoyed your clear and kind method of teaching. Had I the knowledge gained prior to this course I could have helped so many more people. I cannot recommend this course too highly it is ideal for hypnotherapist, or indeed medical doctors.- Lucian Morgan, Actor, Hypnotherapist & Author of 'Dreams & Symbol'
Excellent semester and year. The course content and subject matter was brilliant. James teaching is done in an easy to follow manner. Practise was excellent. A very good year with great success.- Jon Gray
This has been excellent, highly informative and educational both about the illnesses studied but also about how hypnosis can be effectively used to treat these illnesses as a complimentary therapy. James Pool presents the course with authority that arises from the extensive research he has carried out. He presents academic papers by medical doctors published in prestigious academic journals. These papers are a gold mine of information. Both as evidence and to prove the effectiveness of medical hypnosis. Personally as a hypnotherapist this course has expanded both my vision of what possibilities there are , but it has also opened a huge market for clients that would not normally be treated by a hypnotherapist. I am already getting enquires from clients for illnesses since I have only just completed the course.- Graeme Cuthbertson
Although I take things in slowly, over the period of the first year, I have found that a broad overall understanding is developing and I am pleased with this. I am enjoying studying in a small class with the relaxed atmosphere you create. I am also enjoying being able to take things at my own pace.- Christine Green, The Wellbeing Consultancy, Basingstoke
A useful way to get a foot in the door with doctors who may be resistant to allowing us to work with other kinds of clients.- Nigel Skinner, The Wellbeing Consultancy, Basingstoke

This is a practical “hands on” Workshop with personal coaching
You’ll see James demonstrating the techniques and be able to take part in the live demonstrations so you experience mesmerism with the only person to have been passed the secrets that have been handed down directly from Mesmer himself.
You’ll learn the background and history behind mesmerism and comprehensive case histories that clearly demonstrate its healing powers using the same techniques that Mesmer himself used with his clients.
Even if you’re a skilled hypnotherapist, you’ll find mesmerism a powerful addition to the toolbox of techniques you can use with clients as there are certain conditions that mesmerism is more effective at treating than hypnosis.
“Being able to put someone in a mesmeric state without the use of words was a highlight of the weekend. It was surprisingly effective. Truly amazing!”
James will provide personal coaching throughout the weekend in order to help you become the very best mesmerist you can be.
Some techniques require precise protocols that have remain unchanged since Mesmer developed them and it is important that students don’t deviate from the instructions and James will be carefully monitoring practice sessions.
James teaches pure mesmerism as it was taught to him by Dr Oscar Forel, whose father Dr August Forel had had studied and observed the work of many mesmerists including Dupotet and lived to his nineties, thereby a living link with the mesmerists of the past century.
