A large body of research over the past decade has shown that imagining desired movement in a stroke-affected limb increases motor function recovery, and is a powerful rehabilitation aid, alongside other therapies in programs for recovery after a stroke. The hypnotic suggestions, soothing guided narrative and powerful affirmations on this audio program are also designed to build confidence, uplift spirits, reinforce self-esteem, and increase patience with the recovery process - psychological factors that are known to be key elements in any effective program of natural treatment for stroke recovery. The track list is as follows:
1. Introduction (4:54)
2. Guided Imagery (20:17)
3. Affirmations (18:36)
Guided imagery is a holistic, mind-body therapy that consists of healing words and hypnotic images, set to soothing music, to achieve specific healing goals. Repeated listening once or twice a day for 2-3 weeks ensures maximum impact. This Health Journeys™ recording for recovery from a stroke was written and narrated by guided imagery pioneer and holistic health expert Belleruth Naparstek, scored to the exquisite, immersive music of Steven Mark Kohn, and produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's sound engineer, Bruce Gigax.
A separate track of affirmations offers briefer versions of the same healthful images for those who prefer their mind-body tools in smaller doses, on the go, or even while driving.
Listen to an audio sample and see for yourself why this audio program is such a popular word of mouth favorite as a gentle but powerful stroke recovery tool, and why it is enthusiastically recommended by rehab physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists and recreational therapists nationwide.
