Benefits range from feeling a deeper sense of peace, reviving that spark of childhood imagination, creativity, and playfulness that often gets lost in adulthood, to supporting or strengthening inner health and wellness. The positive impacts have been demonstrated by research as well, showing that guided imagery has the ability to lower anxiety and pain, speed up healing, reduce blood pressure, increase athletic mastery, and boost confidence. It’s also a wonderful complementary treatment for those living with chronic illness. The practice can even heighten our responsiveness to our own intuition and empathy.

Setting the client up with a peaceful, calm, relaxing place where they can close their eyes and revisit allowing the peaceful feelings to come back at anytime. This is very helpful when a stressful situation comes up and gives the client a reset. With Guided Imagery clients are able to find their own answers within.
