This guided meditation for chronic or acute pain uses two research-proven methods for pain management: it provides pleasant diversion for the mind with positive, healing guided imagery (good for chronic pain); and it offers guidance for facing and softening acute pain, such as muscle spasm, injury or post-surgical pain.
Guided imagery is a complementary, mind-body therapy that consists of healing words and images, set to soothing music, to achieve specific healing or wellness goals. A separate track of affirmations provides quick relief in a briefer format that can be enjoyed while engaged in other activities. Repeated listening once or twice a day for 2-3 weeks ensures maximum impact.
Through relaxing around and through physical or emotional pain, refocusing the mind, and marshalling serotonin-elevating images of love, gratitude, safety and peace, muscle aches, joint pain can subside, minimized or even transformed. The track list is as follows:
1. Introduction (6:00)
2. Guided Imagery (14:46)
3. Affirmations (22:41)
