Guided Imagery

in Healing




Imagery is the thought process that invokes and uses the senses of vision, hearing, taste, smell, touch, balance, position, and movement.  It is the communication mechanism between perception, emotion, and bodily change.  A major cause of both wellness and sickness, the image is the world’s oldest and greatest healing resource. . . .
