Overcoming phobias

Guided imagery has been shown to be an effective method for treating phobias.

In a 2013 study that was published in the Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry, researchers tested and found that guided imagery led to significant long-term improvements for people with social phobias.

They concluded that guided imagery “may be used as a cost-effective intervention for social phobias.”

Reducing anxiety

A 2009 study conducted by Akron University in Portugal showed that guided imagery helped people living with depressive disorders in a psychiatric inpatient facility reduce the symptoms of their anxiety, stress, and depression.

The researchers found out that after only 10 days of treatment, patients experienced significant improvements.

Nowadays, guided imagery is commonly used by both medical doctors and alternative medicine practitioners alike to help patients reduce stress and live healthier, happier lives.

The patients experienced significant improvement after only 10 days of treatment

“...[P]atients had significantly improved comfort and decreased depression, anxiety, and stress over time.”

Reducing stress

A 1988 study that was published by the Louisiana University School of Nursing describes the positive effects of guided imagery on surgical patients experiencing ongoing stress both before and after their operations.

The researchers also found improvement in the patients’ wound healing when they used guided imagery as compared with a control group.

The power guided imagery has over the body

Perhaps the most intriguing revelation shown by the research is that guided imagery not only has the power to influence our minds, but also our bodies.

A 2012 study that was conducted by Continuum Cancer Centers of New York, Beth Israel Medical Center examined the power of guided imagery in patients receiving radiation therapy for breast cancer.

Unlike most studies that test only subjective parameters (i.e., by using questionnaires), this study also measured objective parameters such as blood pressure, respiration and pulse rate in patients undergoing radiation therapy for cancer.

The result showed improvement in all the parameters tested (!) with a very high success rate.

“86% of participants described the guided imagery sessions as helpful"

“100% said they would recommend the intervention to others"
