I am currently working with a woman with rosacea. If anyone does not know, it is a condition in which there is excessive flushing of the face. It can accompanied by pimples, dilated blood vessels, and a large and disfigured nose (as with WC Fields.) I have tried numerous embedded suggestions and stories regarding control of the body, redirecting flow, etc. If I could even get her face to get less red during our sessions, I would be happy with that as a first step. Though I am a physician and could easily give her the routine medicines that are used for this condition, she would like to have a more "natural" cure, which I understand and agree with. I am thus taking this unorthodox approach, as an expression of my interest in the power of the mind. Does anyone have any suggestions of how I can get her to decrease this blood flow to her face.
Incidentally, as I re-read this, I would like to confirm that I am well trained in Ericksonian hypnosis and have been doing it occasionally over the past 25 years.
