A guided imagery study with asthma patients.

A guided imagery study with asthma patients.
Principal Investigator James Halper at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York completed his guided imagery study with asthma patients, showing that although imagery did not seem to influence actual asthma symptoms, it did result in significantly more patients being able to discontinue their medication. Not surprisingly, he also found significantly less depression and anxiety in the guided imagery group than in the control group.
