Neurolinguistic programming is a scientific approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy, created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California in the 1970s. NLP creators claim there is a connection between neurological processes and behavioral patterns learned through experience, and that can be changed to achieve specific life goals.


NLP stands for neuro (all of our experiences both conscious and subconscious are derived from our sense and central nervous system), linguistic (our mental processes are given meaning, coded or organized and transformed through language), programming (people interact in a system in which experience and communication of sequences of patterns or programs). 


NLP is greatly influenced by Ericksonian Hypnosis, the most widely used form of hypnotherapy today. While hypnosis is a physically passive technique, NLP integrates various physical movements as well. The goal of NLP is striving for excellence. Mind Body Dynamics uses NLP as another modality to make a positive transformation in a client’s lives.
