A woman who has benefited from guided imagery herself gets some pre-op guided imagery for her nephew

05 Jul
A woman who has benefited from guided imagery herself gets some pre-op guided imagery for her nephew with cerebral palsy just before his surgery, resulting in a new guided imagery user and enthusiast..
I learned about guided imagery from my therapist. Your cd has been a blessing to me, someone who suffers from general anxiety and depression. I wind down/fall asleep to your voice every night. When I received your email about the tv program "The New Medicine" I was intrigued. Of course I watched the whole program and called family members and told them to do the same!!

I was convinced that your pre-op CD could help my nephew, who has severe cerebral palsey and multiple curvatures of the spine. He benefited from listening to your pre-op cd these past few days before major surgery on his back. He told me that they help him fall asleep too!! We have sent lots of prayers and hope and love his way, and I am thrilled that your CD helped him through these past few days. I am sure that he will keep listening while he is in the hospital healing and hope that he can learn to use guided imagery throughout his life to improve his health and strengthen his spirit.

The doctors say the surgery went well and we are all hopeful that he will be stronger and have less pain as a result of the operation. Thank you. You have been a blessing in my life and in my nephew''s. Sincerely, Mary
