Can Guided Imagery Help with Neuropathy Pain Brought on by Chemotherapy?

29 Mar

Dear Belleruth,

I would like to use Guided Imagery to lessen the pain of neuropathy in my feet from chemo.

Can you suggest a title that would be beneficial?

Thank you, J


Hi, J

I think Emmett Miller’s Reducing & Relieving Pain might be my first choice for your situation – it’s a combination of self-hypnosis, imagery and relaxation. 

Other choices, with women’s voices: My guided imagery to help ease pain or KRS Edstrom’s 8 mindful meditations for dealing with pain.

And for a good overview of all the things you can do for pain, consider Traci Stein’s book, The Everything Guide to Integrative Pain Management.

Hope this helps. Best of luck.
