Milton H. Erickson, M.D., considered the father of modern hypnotherapy, was born in 1902. Paralyzed with polio in 1919, the possibility of recovery did not merit consideration. His active mind, though, discovered the body's ability to respond to indirect suggestion, and within two years he taught himself to walk.
Ericksonian hypnotherapy, perhaps the fastest growing branch of hypnotherapy today, constitutes short term strategic treatment through guided imagery and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.
Ericksonian Hypnotherapy differs substantially from the trance state and post-hypnotic suggestions the public thinks of as hypnosis. Instead, positive suggestions often with no apparent relationship to the issue addressed shape thought processes and response. In achieving the goal of peak athletic performance, discussion of seemingly unrelated matters often obtains desired results in a pleasant, nonconfrontational atmosphere. Peggy, a certified practitioner of the technique, considers the whole individual in obtaining success in a narrowly focused need.
