I recently terminated a case of a man with this diagnosed problem. I don't know how you think you should go about making hypnotic suggestions about it...but keep in mind, that the anxiety that triggers the blushing, such as public scrutiny or whatever the context happens to be, must be addressed and not the physiological manifestation. My client was severely punished and sternly held responsible for both his behavior and for the siblings he was to manage. His successful treatment (3 session before he was fully convinced) required his ability to dissociate from the key early scenes and also to then be able to associate to his resources of confidence, competence, and even joy and have these linked by fantasy rehearsal to problem areas of public speaking, etc. I took 3 sessions as he also have severe phobic reactions to being in places where he could not get medical help (it's a long story...) but both problem were solved in 3 sessions. He came back for 5 sessions - the last 2 were a month apart from the first 3...as he wanted to keep checking in ... but it was pointless...he had no reoccurrences.
To make sure you can't miss the point here...the treatment is about psychological and emotional resources and factors...not physiological factors.
