Guided imagery is a holistic, mind-body therapy that consists of healing words and images, set to soothing music, to achieve reduction and remediation of challenging symptoms. Repeated listening once or twice a day to this hypnotic, immersive audio program for 2-3 weeks ensures maximum impact.
Written and narrated by guided imagery and holistic health expert Belleruth Naparstek and scored to the exquisitely soothing music of Steven Mark Kohn, this Health Journeys audio resource was produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's noted sound engineer, Bruce Gigax.
Affirmations offer briefer versions of the same positive images and ideas, to help reduce the side effects of Parkinson's Disease, but require less concentration, so they are ideal for those who prefer to listen to their mind-body holistic health tools while engaged in other activities.
Listen to a sample and see for yourself why the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, the Cleveland Clinic, United Healthcare and Kaiser Permanente offer and recommend our Health Journeys guided imagery audio programs as a natural complement to Parkinson's Disease treatment. (51 min.)
