This practice has its origins with the Austrian mystic and physician Franz Anton Mesmer (1734–1815). Practicing medicine in Vienna in the eighteenth century, Dr. Mesmer was to have a profound effect on the fields of science and medicine of his day and to the present. He taught that man was affected by the planets and stars through the medium of an energy field that acted as a fluid because it flowed in, around and through all of Matter. He said that “everything in the universe is contiguous by means of a universal fluid in which all bodies are immersed.”

Mesmer discovered that “all things in nature possess a particular power, which manifests itself by special actions on other bodies.” He found that he could control and direct emanations of energy to his patients, either nearby or at a great distance, and that this action would result in miraculous cures of the diseased.
