One can teach oneself a lot of temperature control with some experimentation and positive feedback; the mechanisms are mostly blood-flow-regulation, the trick is noticing triggers for it. Probably a lot easier with a framework (like Reiki) to put it together. (I'm out of practice, but I used to have some skill at it.) Hmm, I wonder if hand-focus techniques are useful for dealing with RSI precursors - in most people, *anything* that raises "you're abusing yourself" to a conscious level will help, of course...

I knew about the temperature control but never experimented with it; I'd say it's a side-effect of whatever's going on here, rather than The Intended Effect. (I'm told many people don't experience the sensation as heat.) When I'm in full-on skeptic mode, though, I figure that + placebo effect explains a lot.
