Guided Imagery Therapy

Guided Imagery is a form of hypnotherapy which uses visualization to improve an individual's emotional state of being by evoking feelings of relaxation. Based on the concept of mind-body connection this alternative technique is effective in reducing pain, stress and anxiety by integrating meditation with visualization. Under the direction of a therapist, persons struggling with addiction are able to tap into their subconscious in order to make emotional connections, thereby improving self-esteem and self-efficacy.
