Good for when travelling ( different bed , location etc ) I've used it to relax when in a dentist chair. I've seen it work really well on my daughter having her wisdom tooth removed. I've seen it have a major effect on a young man's fear of heights.
Yes, there is a sort of "contract": You agree to the suggestions being made to you while in a very relaxed state of mind, where you are very concentrated on the words being said. But you first have to agree that letting yourself relax and listening to those suggestions is what you really want to do.

I've always wondered about self-hypnosis, Conny. How do you, having put yourself under, as it were, then end the session?

That's interesting about your daughter. Did she have any other form of pain relief?
