Very interesting. Thanks.

I have used the technique (which my Therapist told me about) of drawing with a red marker on the places you want to self harm. It's great if you're a visual person like myself but it can also give you that feeling without actually hurting yourself.

I haven't tried it but she also suggested the ice cube method which is similar to the red marker method described above.
