Guided Meditation


      Also called Guided Imagery or Visualization - this approach teaches people to use imagination to influence attitude, behavior or physiological responses. The idea is that by imagining what you want to happen, you may help make it happen. Visualization is used to help deal with allergies, diabetes, heart conditions, stomach problems, back or neck pain, and AIDS. Visualization reduces stress, boosting the immune system and helping the body fight disease. The "guided" part of imagery refers to direction and support you may get from an audiotape, book or instructor. Once you have learned how to use imagery, you can practice on your own.
