Who was Dave Elman?

The Dave Elman Hypnosis Institute is founded on the lessons and writings of the late Dave Elman. Born in 1900, Dave Elman was one of the most highly regarded and respected hypnotists of the 20th century, and with good reason. Dave was inspired to research hypnosis in his youth after seeing its effects firsthand when his father benefited from pain relieving hypnotherapy sessions, and it eventually became the driving focus of his career. 

Beginning his hypnosis career as a performer of Stage Hypnosis, he quickly garnered the respect of his peers. Dave was able to hypnotize subjects in less than a minute, as opposed to his contemporaries at the time who would often take almost 15 times longer, or ever more! He soon realized that this ability to quickly induce a trance-like state could become very useful in the field of medical and therapeutic hypnosis.

Dave showed his hypnotic pain-control methods to a few of his doctor friends, and soon he was giving full-blown lectures on Medical Hypnosis to classes of physicians and dentists. He also wrote a book called “Findings in Hypnosis”, which was later published as “Hypnotherapy”. Despite the fact that his contemporaries wrote dozens of books on similar subjects, his single published work had such an impact that even today, many consider him to be one of the greatest hypnotists of all time.
