    Guided Imagery: A technique that engages the imagination in the healing process.

    Guided imagery is the process of focusing the mind, accessing intuition, and deepening inner awareness. Research has indicated that guided imagery can reduce anxiety, decrease pain and shorten the length of hospital stays. Studies have also shown that patients who are calm and relaxed recover more quickly from surgery.

    All you need to do is relax and listen to the voice of Linda Meyers – the softness and pace is the key to the gentle, but powerful, guided imagery programs. Listen as often as you like.
