Magic Island tape helps 8 year old with asthma
A friend brought him Betty Mehling’s guided imagery tape about the magic island and he began listening to it at bedtime. The difference was almost immediate. He loves the tape and listens to it religiously, and his asthma attacks became much less frequent. The best thing is, when he does start getting an attack, he puts his headset on and listens to the tape, and it makes the attack much milder. We are thrilled. His father and I have no idea why this little tape works so well, but we are very grateful nonetheless!
