More lowans Turning to Hypnotism, Three Practitioners Report By Mark Thomas (Drake University Journalism Student) DES MOINES — In an age of wonder drugs and scientific miracles, increasing numbers of lowans apparently are seeking help through hypnotism, an art centuries old. In spite of this popularity, hypnotism remains something about which most people know little. And most of what they do know, say hypnotists, is wrong. Greg States, a hypnotist .working with Biofeedback Training Inc. of Des Moines. dates the use of hypnosis as far back as "healingshrines," centuries before Christ. Perhaps because of this ancient beginning, hypnotism is-.commonly associated with magic and mysticism, a comparison two Des Moines hypnotists and a spokesman for the Iowa Medical Association say is unfair. The Iowa Medical Association, said a staff member, subscribes to the American Medical Association's (AMA) view of hypnosis. "The use of hypnosis has a recognized place in medicine and is a useful technique in the treatment of certain illnesses Times Herald, Carroll, la. t Wedneiday, April 14, 1976 O when employed by qualified medical and dental personnel," said the AMA's Council on Mental Health. Dr. Dale Harding, an Eagle Grove physician who is president'of the Iowa Heart Association, is one of a number of Iowa doctors who use hypnotism in their practices. Harding doesn't find hypnotism so unusual. "We use hypnotism all day long, but rarely call it that," he said, "It's nothing new. just using what you already have. "Take a high jumper or a weight lifter. The high jumper spends very little of his time jumping, mostly he concentrates." That is self-hypnosis, said Harding. Erika Fromm, a pioneer in hypnotic research at the University of Chicago, has defined hypnosis as "the uncritical acceptance of suggestion during a heightened state of mental receptivity." States translates this .definition as "listening unquestioningly to what I say."
