Around the time Dr. Mikao Usui re-discovered Reiki from 2500-year-old Tibetan Sanskrit texts, Dr. Franz Mesmer, the Father of Hypnosis, was successfully using similar energetic healing methods, referred to as Mesmerism or Magnetism.

While most Mesmerists, given their energetic methods, enjoyed greater successes than did the hypnotists simply using their mental approach, scientists of the time, and later psychologists, denied the energetic aspects; this resulted in the terms Mesmerism and hypnotism becoming synonymous. We believe Reiki is an excellent means of reviving the healing art of Mesmerism.
