James Braid (physician)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

James Braid (19 June 1795 – 25 March 1860), was born in Fife, and was the son of James Braid and Anne Suttie. He married Margaret Mason (or Meason) on 17 November 1813. They had two children, James (born 1822), and a daughter.

A Scottish physician and surgeon, specialising in muscular conditions, Braid was an important and influential pioneer of hypnotism and hypnotherapy. Braid coined the English term "hypnotism" as an abbreviation for "neuro-hypnotism" or nervous sleep, in his lectures of 1841, and it is from his work that the word "hypnosis" ultimately derives. Braid is regarded by many authorities as being the first genuine "hypnotherapist" and the "Father of Modern Hypnotism."
