The modern form of Stage Hypnosis has roots to Parlor or Demonstrational Hypnosis. The art and science was preserved during the late 1800s and onward, and to its historical credit, enabled continued experimental work by those individuals who often were guests of the wealthy, thereby creating and renewing public interest as well as enabling the creation and perfecting of techniques.
