Imagery a Good Resource for Dialysis

04 Sep

Janet and Tim, who run a Dialysis Center in eastern Texas, wrote to tell us that using guided imagery for Dialysis, Relaxation & Wellness and Relieve Stress has been a helpful addition to their resources for their patient population.

Tim writes:
"Dialysis can be a dispiriting, depressing process that can get tougher and tougher on our people over time. It is a true challenge for us to help our people stay motivated, energized and positive. We found the guided imagery was not for everyone – some will always prefer watching the TV screen - but for a good percentage of our population at any given time, it makes a difference in how they respond to the process.  We now introduce guided imagery to everyone when they first arrive, knowing that for those who will use it, it will make a big difference."
