Now Opining on Huffington Post

27 Sep

OK, Folks,
I decided to start blogging on Huffington Post about the value of imagery and other evidence-based, inexpensive, user-friendly therapies for troops coming home with posttraumatic stress.

This information needs to get to the hundreds – no, thousands - of soldiers who need it, but it’ll be months before this data will be published.

So without giving away details that are proprietary to the research process, I’m blabbing about the bottom line: what we can see works to make a big dent on PTSD symptoms.  So far, we know selected guided imagery does, along with a technique called Healing Touch.  Other promising tools are out there, too – biofeedback, Reiki, Massage Therapy, acupressure and more.  I plan to keep writing about these methods, to whatever extent I can.

If you are so moved, please check out the blog, sign in, and post any comments, reactions or thoughts you have about it, pro or con.  Pass it on to friends, family or organizations that could use this info.  It will help people with PTSD, and it needs to be seen.

OK, so I’ll get off my soapbox…. for now, anyway.

And being as how it’s September, Cindy’s put together a 25% off Back in School sale that’s running through October 4th.  We’ve got a terrific selection of imagery and hypnosis CDs to enhance learning, increase concentration, reduce test anxiety and improve confidence and mastery. And here again, the research supports the effectiveness of these methods for learning and performance.  So check it out. We have stuff for little kids too, but these sale items are geared for middle school kids on up through any age adult.

Okay, take care and be well!
All best,
