Powerful stuff

I don't know if this is a beginner's book for self hypnosis or not. The trance inducing exercises really work. You will immediately notice that, utilizing your mind, you can help your body feel better, in the least, like getting a massage. The hardest part, I find, as a family man, is getting the peace and quiet to practice the exercises. Overall, I recommend this book to anyone who wants to find new ways to relax and/or meditate as well as feel the healthful effects of this therapy.

Informative, but...

Very interesting and informative, but a bit repetitious. The shorter hyponosis sessions are good, but the longer one was disappointing. I was expecting more of a guided healing session, but found it to be more instructive in nature with less actual guided relaxation.
