When did hypnosis become viewed as a legitimate medical practice?

The Legitimization of Hypnosis as a Medical Practice

The British Medical Association gave support for the teaching of the therapeutic use of hypnosis in medicine in 1955. Three years later, the American Medical Association followed suit.

Hypnosis is currently used in several areas of health care as an adjunct to more conventional treatments. These include dentistry, general medicine, and psychology.
