When people talk about great hypnotists of the 20th century, two names come to mind. Milton Erickson… and Dave Elman. They have equal stature.
This is surprising because Erickson published dozens of books and papers on hypnosis and was actively promoted by his followers who wrote dozens of books about Erickson, but Elman published only one book, “Findings in Hypnosis” (later published as “Hypnotherapy”). Why is Dave Elman held in such high esteem? His induction is that good!
Erickson’s inductions could take a very long time, but Elman would place a subject into deep trance in less than a minute!
Elman published only one book, but that ONE book had such an impact that many consider Elman to be the greatest hypnotist of all time. There is very little accurate information out there about Dave Elman but this new site and our products are going to change all that! Learn more about his work and legacy here.
