Becoming proficient at going into self-hypnosis is a learnable skill. This little process can be used to reinforce your work with a therapist, or all by itself in your personal practise.
Milton Erickson, M.D. taught himself self-hypnosis in order to learn to use his body again after contracting polio as a young man, and experiencing physical and sensory paralysis (Erickson & Rossi, 1977). He was successful, and regained the use of his legs and arms, and overcame all manner of impairments throughout his life by using this technique. The mind is an extraordinary thing.
