Autosuggestion is a psychological technique that was developed by apothecary Émile Coué from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. In 1932, German psychiatrist Johannes Schultz developed and published autogenic training, a relaxation technique influenced by the Coué method. Unlike autosuggestion, it has been proven in clinical trials, and along with other relaxation techniques, such as progressive relaxation and meditation, have replaced autosuggestion in therapy. The co-author of Schultz's multi-volume tome on autogenic training, Wolfgang Luthe, was a firm believer that autogenic training was a powerful approach that should only be offered to patients by qualified professionals.
