  3. 6 Ways for Teens to Protect Their Mental Health on Picture-Perfect Instagram

    6 Ways for Teens to Protect Their Mental Health on Picture-Perfect Instagram

    When you’re still trying to figure out who you are and what you value, looking at pictures of unreasonably pretty people living seemingly carefree lives is bound to make you feel insecure and inadequate. That was true back in my own teenage years, when my models for style and beauty were literally models (or actors) in magazines. And I’m not surprised to learn that it’s just as true for today’s teens looking at the carefully curated images of “influencers” on Instagram.

  4. Oakland Clinic for Underserved Women With Cancer Adds Guided Imagery to Its Free Services

    Oakland Clinic for Underserved Women With Cancer Adds Guided Imagery to Its Free Services

    Going through cancer treatment is rough on everyone. It’s twice as hard if you don’t have support to cope with the physical and emotional side effects. And during a global pandemic? That’s just icing on a layer cake of stress.

    So, we’re delighted that the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic (CMC) in Oakland, Calif., adopted Health Journeys’ guided imagery at a tough time when it couldn’t offer services in person and when stress was at an all-time high. And we’re absolutely thrilled that they plan to keep using our audios now that they’ve reopened.

  5. 3 New Spanish Meditations for Trauma, Weight Loss, & Cancer... And One of Them Is Just in Time for Carolina’s Mom

    3 New Spanish Meditations for Trauma, Weight Loss, & Cancer... And One of Them Is Just in Time for Carolina’s Mom

    As we continue focusing on keeping ourselves and our loved ones healthy and well, this seasonal change into fall seems to have come surprisingly fast. It is amazing how quickly time seems to pass by when we are so consumed in just making our day-to-day work. For me recently, a significant part of that fleeting time has been concentrated on supporting my mom with a new medical diagnosis… breast cancer.  

    The news came as a complete surprise to her and to us, her family. But even so, witnessing how she has managed every aspect of the cancer label has been inspiring: the series of chemotherapy treatments, and the myriad physical and mental changes that have come with the diagnosis... not because she has made it all look easy, but because she has faced them with deep reflection, authenticity, and humor. 

    Intent on helping herself deal with this big life change and optimize the efforts of her medical team, my mom, a nurse of 55+ years, asked me for tools that might support her with the cancer treatments and help her feel good inside.

    MD Anderson Tests 4 Different Mind-Body Therapies with Cancer Patients and Gets Impressive Results!

    MD Anderson’s Department of Palliative, Rehabilitation and Integrative Medicine recently evaluated the impact of 4 different integrative, mind-body therapies on the symptom distress of cancer patients and their caregivers.

    They looked at guided meditation, yoga, massage therapy, & acupuncture.

    These were preliminary studies that got patient and caregiver feedback - not fancy randomized, controlled studies – but the data yielded meaningful results on standard measurement instruments, and with high population sizes.

    I keep thinking the Nineties were just a few years ago, but no, it’s been almost 30 years since we first started providing guided imagery to VA facilities. And boy, have things changed since then.

  8. Helping College Students Succeed With Guided Imagery

    Helping College Students Succeed With Guided Imagery

    A few years ago, Laureen Campana, RN, MPH, NP, then President-Elect of HSACCC (the Health Services Association of the California Community College system), and coordinator of student health at Columbia College, approached me after a session of guided imagery training I’d given at the Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine’s post-doc fellowship program at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

    Part of my talk showed the research on how guided imagery and meditation were associated with significantly reduced stress, anxiety, depression; and improved sleep, concentration, and performance.

The streaming page and the program are called Veterans for Wellness.

  10. V.A. to Launch FREE, 6-Session Guided Imagery Certificate Training Course, System-Wide!

    V.A. to Launch FREE, 6-Session Guided Imagery  Certificate Training Course, System-Wide!

    This week the V.A. is rolling out an introductory video course in Guided Imagery, the prelude to a 6-session, comprehensive course that will be available FREE to any employee in the entire system, and – get this! – soon to the general professional community as well 

    It looks like it will deliver somewhere around 9 contact hours of CECs (10.5 with the intro), to physicians, social workers, nurses, psychologists, pharmacists, dentists, dieticians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and kinesthesiologists. 

    Now, we’ve always seen hot spots of intense enthusiasm for guided imagery in VA’s around the US, and we’ve been shipping guided imagery audios, streaming pages and Playaways to VAMC’s since 1993. But this level of full-blown, system-wide VA support?? UNPRECEDENTED! For us, it’s a dream come true…in fact, I honestly never thought I’d see the day.
